Post and Beam Family Room Addition Over the past few decades, home designs have changed to open concept living from more separate living spaces. Many homes built before the 1980s or 90s are somewhat cramped and confined compared to the wide-open rooms and high ceilings of today’s homes. Many homeowners would love to expand their family room to add more space and square footage, but aren’t quite sure what this type of home extension entails.

Get started on your addition Can I add a vaulted ceiling to my family room? For most homeowners, it’s not easy to retrofit a vaulted ceiling without major structural engineering, especially since it entails modifying existing ceiling joists or roof trusses to accommodate the new vault. It’s a major construction project, but this type of living room addition can make a significant difference to your property value and the overall enjoyment of your home. Are vaulted ceilings worth it for living room additions? A lofted ceiling can turn otherwise unused roof space into a larger and more dramatic room. They’re a popular option in full addition renovations, as they add more “wow” factor than a standard room addition with flat ceilings as they add to the impression of size in your home. When paired with larger windows, vaults also do an excellent job of increasing natural light in your house.
