Residential Additions


Home addition design and construction is complex. Let us handle all the details.

Building an addition for your home is an extensive project, but one with major benefits. The extra space that it gives you and the lasting value it creates make building an addition a practical, rewarding decision. At DESIGNfirst, we manage the entire process from your initial consultation until construction is complete, so you can watch your home change shape without worrying about the details.

Addition Projects, Simplified

Whether you want space for your family to grow into or you’re ready to build the addition you always wanted, our design/build strategy streamlines the process from start to finish. Addition projects come with unique logistical and architectural concerns, from zoning and stability to utilities and practicality, and our team does it all.

Across Chicago, our design/build team manages every step of planning and construction, so you don’t have to worry about comparing contractors and budgets. From day one, we work with you to ensure that the addition we design and build is one you’ll love.

Planning Your Project

Do you know what kind of addition you want, or what kind will add value to your home? Whether you’ve been researching and planning for months or you’re simply considering different options, our designers start with a casual conversation that assesses your home, your lifestyle and your budget.

An addition is a big commitment, and we want you to enjoy total peace of mind from the outset. We specialize in sensible, value-driven projects that make your home not just bigger, but better.

A Design/Build Firm

Don’t let your home addition be defined by limitations. Our design, architecture and production teams are skilled in side, rear, second-story and other additions, so you can give your home extra space and lasting value right where you want it. Whatever project you have in mind, we’re here to listen, advise and bring it to life.

As a design/build firm, we manage the entire process, making it as simple as possible. Before construction ever starts, you’ll know your budget and your schedule, so you know just what to expect.


Residential additions aren’t all we do. In and around Chicago, our design/build team plans and creates commercial property additions, giving businesses the space they need to grow and thrive. From retail shops to studios, we make commercial property expansions fast, easy and straightforward.
