Remodeling Time

Similar to the rise in new house building, remodeling is quickly growing as well.  More and more people are a choosing to remodel their homes instead of buying or building new ones. Many times upgrading or remodeling a space is a more cost effective option. The NAHB contributed several factors to this $6 billion rise in the remodeling market.

While Baby Boomers are heading towards retirement, their needs range from building a brand new accessible home to making their current home fit all of their new needs. Millennials, on the other hand, are entering the housing market with a range of expectations. A great deal of Millennials are buying older homes at a cheap price and using the rest of the budget to upgrade and remodel the home to their custom wants and needs.  Additionally, Multi-Family buildings (apartment complexes) are requesting upgrades as well. Noticing the increase in design in newer complexes influences established complexes to remodel their spaces to compete in the renting market.

Even during new construction, some home builders require a house that can be easily remodeled or extended for future growth.  Archival Designs features a plethora of expandable house plans that have the simplicity and flexibility to easily be remodeled in the future!

The Tilly– Being a Ranch Style House Plan has its advantages when it comes to versatility.  Including an unfurnished bonus space makes expanding accessible without having to build an actual add on, which will cut down on remodeling cost. .

The Tilly house is 2,355 sq. ft. with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

Building for 55+

Just like Millennials, Baby Boomers are a strong force in the housing market. The 55+ age group leads the market in buying and building new houses due to a strong need for downsizing as couples become empty nesters. According to the NAHB, Baby boomers are looking for homes that accommodate their specific needs.  Most Baby Boomers want to move into a smaller home that is less than 3,000 sq. ft., and features most of the amenities on the main floor.
