We built this residential addition while the homeowners still resided in their home. All rear sliding glass doors were sealed to avoid construction debris from getting inside. Light demolition was required to eliminate part of the original residential structure then the load bearing columns and exterior block walls were raised. The roof trusses and plywood were installed, we then filled and poured the concrete foundation. This addition added a large living room, a master bedroom & master bathroom to the home.
Here are before and after photos of an abandoned residence in the City of South Miami. The original owners had begun construction and had to put the site to a halt for unknown reasons. The home getting numerous violations and having an unsafe structures violation had accrued fines of over $300,000. After the new owner took over, with the efforts of Rausa Builders, we were able to mitigate the fines to $30,000 and begin construction once again.
The existing garage structure which was originally separated from the house was joined with an addition in between two main residences. This new addition to the home became the large kitchen to the house with a breakfast area. The garage was converted into half garage and half Master Room addition and bath suite. All the interior walls were from 4″ concrete block which made running new electrical and plumbing much more difficult.
This house was completed with a modern design in the interior and exterior. The roof is from Eagle supply which is a concrete roof tile installed with polyfoam. An addition was completed on the front section to make a grand entrance.
