Windows play a much larger role in our lives than we ever truly think about. They provide everything from natural light for our homes, to views of fantastic environments safe from the elements, to perfect analogies and perspectives. The word window has come to mean so much more than just a piece of glass to fill a hole in the wall.
And photography is yet another way to capture the world through glass.

All jokes aside, adding onto your home is really a very wise investment. It’s easier than building from scratch or moving, and less wasteful than new construction. It adds to your property value, as well as to the comfort and enjoyment you experience from being at home.
Depending on your needs, you may decide to add onto your home, but you may also want to consider adding a detached structure to your property. There are several advantages to both.
The cost of either type of addition is comparable. While it may cost a bit less to build more rooms onto your existing house, the project will also entail deconstructing portions of the homes in order to tie the new addition in, which will add costs. An attached addition may also mean constructing a whole new roof.
