Building A Home Addition In Winter
Building In Winter – If you’re in the middle of a home addition as winter is approaching or if you are attempting to begin a home addition during the colder months, there are a few items to be aware of.
Tips For Home Addition In Winter:
Weather. Places like California make building year-round easy. The weather cools down but stays reasonably mild compared to the rest of the country. The same goes for Florida. However, those who live in the mountains want to get the framing and exterior work is done before the ground freezes and the snow flies.
Deadlines. Something always seems to come up during the building process that delays the finish date. This can be due to completely random circumstances like Hurricane Sandy holding up delivery of supplies, or illnesses, but there is usually some type of hiccup that can push back the completion of the project. For those hoping for an end of November finish, be prepared for winter to move in faster than expected and have your home sectioned off so that you and your family can stay warm if work is still being done.
