Home Additions: Your Home, Bigger and Better

At Abbey Design Center, we love working with homeowners who want to expand their living space without compromising the look and feel of their existing home. When you’re ready to add a sunroom, additional bathroom, master suite, or even a second floor, we are your perfect design build partner.

Many of the clients we build additions for first came to us for the design and construction of their original custom home. It is a source of great pride that homeowners put their trust in us not just once, but for all their subsequent home addition and remodeling needs.

When Experience Matters

We know just about everything there is to know about home additions. After all, we’ve spent over 30 years doing them, using only the finest materials and employing only the most talented and trustworthy subcontractors. Our years of experience have taught us how to best build an addition that adds value to your home and makes the process an enjoyable one for all involved.


Q: How much will it cost?

A: The cost is up to you! Depending on how much work it will take for your home to meet your needs, the quality of the design elements or how much of the existing structure we can re-use.

Q: How long will it take?

A: This also is up to you! It depends on the size of the project, design element quality and how much we will have to replace.

Q: Can we stay in the home during the remodel?

A: Yes and no. This depends on the size and scope of the project as well as the temperament of our clients.

Q: What if this is our first remodel? 

A: We have learned how to carefully interview our clients, listen to their answers and quickly coming up with unique plans that fill their design needs and budget. The process will be simplified by going step by step.

Q: How do we make sure our project sticks to our budget?

A: Our contract will include a price to build the home as drawn and specified so that you have an understanding of what you are getting for the price. If you do not deviate from your original decisions, then you will stay within your budget.

Q: Are you a green builder?

A: We are totally committed to being environmentally responsible in all our projects and are Green Certified builders.

Services I am interested in (check all that apply):

Bathroom Additions

A well-designed bathroom addition can not only improve your family’s life, but add exceptional value to your home. Whether you want to install a new master suite with a luxurious spa-like retreat, or are looking to add a guest bathroom, we will work with you to design and build the perfect space. We bring innovative design to every bathroom addition we do, and we will deliver the bath of your dreams on time and on budget.

As a homeowner you can almost never go wrong adding on a bathroom. You rarely hear someone say “I have too much bathroom space.” While bathroom additions tend to only recoup about 50% of their cost at resale, if you’ve always dreamed of relaxing in a jetted tub, or your family isn’t happy about lining up to share the baths you have, you may not be that concerned about recouping anything on the addition. Who can put a price tag on personal satisfaction, relaxation and family harmony?

In-Law Suite

Abbey Design Center can build you a great in-law suite. Whether you’re looking for the perfect home office, a place to entertain guests, or a separate media room, we can help.

An in-law suite is the perfect place for guests, friends, family or business associates to stay, and gives people a comfortable space to relax in. Many families are making the move to multi-generational living. A separate suite is the perfect solution for having family close while incorporating a sense of privacy and autonomy.

Are you a serious hobbyist or artist? A backyard studio is an ideal space for craft and art projects, a quiet place to work, or just a place to kick back and relax with a good book. Garden cottages are a charming addition to any home. Other in-law suites include:

Second Story Additions

Want to double your floor space and increase the number of rooms in your home? Add a second story addition – it’s your house times two!

The possibilities and advantages of adding on a second story are countless! Many include:

Patio & Deck Additions

A patio or deck can add beautiful exterior living space for your family and friends to enjoy, even year-round if it’s enclosed. Our design team will help you create an outdoor living space that beautifully complements your home’s architectural style and looks like an original component of the house.

Northern Virginia experiences lovely outdoor entertaining weather at least nine months of the year. We’ll help you turn your back or side yard into a dining and entertaining spot, or an outdoor sanctuary. Even as the weather turns colder, you can enjoy your outdoor fireplace or fire pit, and installing built-in seating will make your new patio or deck beautiful and functional.
