Additions and Remodels by R4 Construction Have you decided that it is finally time to expand? There are many reasons to expand and there are also many considerations for how it should be done. Whether you’re looking to make a small statement or a big one, you’ll want to work with a qualified designer and contractor to create that perfect space. If your addition is onto a historic home in North Tacoma (or a historic home anywhere), you want to work with someone who knows how to navigate this process. Working with historic homes is our specialty. We love the homes in our community and know how to work with their conventional design. In the end you’ll have the addition that is just right. See our gallery below for some examples! The Big Picture The homeowner of this weathered house wanted their dream home and yard. Her snapshot idea for the big picture includes flower beds with stone pathways, vegetable gardens and a fire pit, along with a house of character and charm. This is quite a tall order for this modest craftsman. The basement access was moved to the inside. Two new decks got added. The new siding, doors, windows and traditional trim details help her overall big picture come together. Raise The Roof R4 Construction added an entire second level onto this historic North Tacoma home. Large doorways and craftsman details make the interior space inviting and intriguing. The dining room features the original oak flooring, along with a built-in buffet with the original stained glass intact. For images of the kitchen remodel for this project, see “Bungalow Kitchen” under the “Kitchens” tab. Dormer Addition R4 Construction added a second-story dormer addition to this home, giving our clients an additional bedroom!
