CALGARY HOME ADDITIONS
Custom home additions in Calgary, Airdrie and Okotoks
There is nothing more satisfying than finding the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood. However, as lifestyles change and families grow, that perfect home often begins to feel cramped and impractical. With a new home addition, you don’t want to leave your neighbors, the school district, or the house in which you’ve made so many memories.
So what are your options?
In this situation, we recommend adding a home extension on to your existing home. Reborn Renovations is an experienced industry leader when it comes to home additions and room additions. We can create a new space that caters to your new needs, and most importantly we can keep you in the home you love.
Homeowners often find the idea of an home addition intimidating. The decisions, the investment, and living through construction can quickly become overwhelming. Therefore, it’s important to collaborate with an experienced company like Reborn Renovations when considering home expansions. Our experienced staff and contractors live to make the process of adding on as easy, stress-free, and maybe even fun as possible.
We have the market knowledge. We guarantee the quality of our building products, and we employ the best teams to get every job done right the first time. From designing the new structure to product selection, our representatives will deliver nothing but the best in service and craftsmanship.
There are many options available when it comes to increasing your current living space.
Adding a second story is a big investment, but it’s often the more sensible choice for families looking to expand their home. You can keep your yard by building up instead of out, you save on foundation costs (as long as yours is approved to handle the extra load), and you get to stay in the home you love while drastically increasing its value.
It is easy to go wrong with a second-story addition, which is why it’s important to go with a trustworthy company like Reborn Renovations. We strive to make sure every home addition looks nothing like an addition. Sometimes it’s too obvious that a house has had a second story added because the windows, proportions, and details just look off. With our team of expert builders and designers, you don’t have to worry about any of that.
Often, we hear clients say “If I had just one more room, this house would be perfect.” Tacking on an extra bedroom or bathroom is no problem for Reborn Renovations. Add square footage and property value, increase your quality of life, and make your cramped home your dream home again.
Building out doesn’t have to be an entire room. Micro-additions, or bump-outs, are becoming increasingly popular. These additions add up to 100 square feet of living space and are more cost-effective than adding an entire room. Typically, micro-additions are added on to an existing room. This may give you extra kitchen space, a mud room, an extra full bath, or a window seat with book storage. If you have a specific, small space goal in mind, then a micro-addition by Reborn Renovations might be the right option for you.
Utilizing the space above an attached garage is an excellent solution for families who are looking for a bonus room addition. The footprint of the home and landscaping aren’t affected, and because most of the work is taking place away from the main areas of the house, people often find that living through the construction process is easier, too.
An addition above the garage is great for rooms that require a little more privacy, like an in-law suite, an entertainment space, or a home office. However, the space can easily be utilized for more practical purposes, like adding that additional bathroom and/or bedroom.
If you have an attached garage, but you’re having trouble visualizing the way it might fit your needs, contact one of our designers today! We do this all day, every day, and we know we have a solution that will work for you.

Unlike our competitors, we offer a wide range of selections, layouts, and customizable options. We take pride in being the market leader when it comes to home additions and home extensions that fit your lifestyle and budget.
Home Additions costs come with a wide range of prices, as there are so many factors, options, and scenarios. Will it be a bump out of a bungalow, or a two or three storey addition? Do you want a full foundation, or a crawl space? Will there be a bonus room over the garage? Some more simplistic additions like an extended entry for a mud room can be in the $20,000-$30,000 range.
The size of the addition and its interior floor plan are the biggest variables that drive the price up or down. Whereas a bonus room over a garage starts at $60,000, adding bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. can easily double that number. Whereas a living room extension in the front of your home can cost $20,000, a kitchen extension out the back can be $100,000 plus.
We are happy to provide our most specialized sales reps for a detailed in home consultation, which also comes with a viability pre screening with the City to make sure your vision is within the setback and code allowances.
Step 1: Preliminary Development Assessment
During the preliminary development assessment, our team will discuss your vision. We’ll look at the overall design, layout, concepts, and construction process of the home addition you’re looking to make. From there, we’ll be able to give you a preliminary estimate and deadline for project completion. We can discuss payment structure, and this is also the point at which we will examine important details like zoning and HOA restrictions to avoid any future inconvenience.
Once this step is taken care of, we can really get going on your home addition project.
Step 2: Design and Project Coordination
This is the phase where the magic happens. Our expert designers and operation staff members collaborate to ensure that all your expectations are met in the final design. Both teams work hard to meet all of your needs and incorporate all of the important home expansion details while staying on budget.
The preconstruction design specification and planning, while mostly behind-the-scenes, typically consumes one to three months of the project. This doesn’t mean you’re pushed out of the process. On the contrary, we make sure we’re ready to meet at your convenience to make absolutely sure we have all of the necessary details. We want you to be fully satisfied with the direction of the project.
This step begins once we receive an initial deposit.
Step 3: Pre-Construction Review and Contract Signing
At Reborn Renovations, we are meticulous when it comes to detail! In this phase of the project, we go through the home extension details again to ensure that your selections, layout, design, and budget requirements are all being met in the design we’ve created just for you. You’ll get a rough illustration of how your new home is expected to look, and we’ll sign the final contract.
Your participation in this step is an integral part of ensuring your complete satisfaction with the project. Once the contract is signed, we’ll collect a construction deposit and move on to step number 4.
Step 4: Architectural Standards and Building Permit Submission
This is where we get to focus on how the new home addition will affect the outside of your home. Our developer will require specific details, such as color, style, scale, materials, and landscaping. These are the architectural standards. We’ll match the look of the addition so that it complements the existing home, whether it’s a small-scale project or a full second-story add-on.
Once these decisions have been made, we can submit the application forms, drawings, and everything else we need to ensure we are complying with municipal requirements and obtain a building permit.
Step 5: Pre-Occupancy, Possession, and Post-Possession
About a month before we complete your custom home building project, our project manager will update the date of possession for the property.
During this time, the experts at Reborn Renovations will conduct rigorous inspections to ensure that all deficiency items, touch-ups, and completions are taken care of before giving possession to the owner. Our goal is to make sure that you are 100% satisfied with the look and feel of your new addition at the time of orientation.
Before we hand the reins over to you, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about maintaining the durability of your home or room addition and its furnishings for years to come. We often form strong ties with our customers during this stage because we want to be there for you beyond project completion and warranty expiration. We want you to be happy in what will essentially be your new home!
Whenever you need us, our representatives will always be just one call away.
