I recently had Straub Homes complete an addition onto my home, and I can honestly say it was a very happy experience. I live in an old 1800's farmhouse with a tiny kitchen that I have wanted to update for years. My two main problems were: 1) only about 18 inches of counter space, and 2) no visual contact with my four children while in the kitchen. I was thinking mainly of function, but after talking with several builders, Straub's vision presented possibilities that the others hadn't even considered. By building a new kitchen onto my old living room, I now have more working space than I ever dreamed of, full visual contact with my children, and my old kitchen is now a laundry/mud room complete with cubbies for the kids' coats and book bags. (I have three 8-year-old triplets and a teenager!)
Sometimes when adding on to an existing older home it is hard to make the new part look like it really belongs, but I knew Straub Builders had gotten it just right when someone stopped me at work and said, “Hey- it looks like the new part of your house was always there!” Not only were they meticulous with details, but their communication with me throughout the process was excellent. I was always kept in the loop and was never left wondering what was happening. I never felt pressured- they were so easy to work with!
