Allard Custom Homes can help you transform your older home into a brand new interior. We typically start with a complete or partial "gut job". We then remove existing walls to create open spaces (usually for a combined kitchen and family room) and move partition walls to create or modify existing rooms. In the process, there may be structural work to increase ceiling heights in the basement (through underpinning) and on the main floor. Projects typically start around $100,000 for a small 1,400 sqft two-storey home.
We can build an addition to your existing home by removing the back (or side) wall and create a concrete or block wall foundation for the extended living space. We then frame a one or two-storey addition that will extend the footprint of your existing home. These projects typically involve removing most partition walls on both the main and second floor and laying out a brand new floor plan to accomodate a large family room on the main floor and additional bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor. These projects typically start around $200,000 depending on the size of the addition.
We can add a second storey to your existing bungalow! We will start by removing the existing roof, then create the floor and staircase and frame the new second floor layout.

These projects typically start around $200,000 for an 800 sqft bungalow. We work extremely fast and can typically complete the entire project within 4-6 months!
