Increasing the Personal Value of Your New Built Home

Since the pandemic, many families have had to revisit their expectations regarding their homes. 

COVID-19 forced everyone to change how they use their homes. Many found themselves living with multiple generations under the same roof, others began preparing meals and eating at home more often. Limited bathrooms and inefficiencies in how their kitchens really functioned were discovered during the pandemic. These are a few of many examples of how the form and function of our homes evolve to keep pace with our changing lifestyles.

AJD Builders custom built homes include open floor plans for large family gatherings and indoor to outdoor living spaces that feature expansive patios and decks. We specialize in the construction of an ADU  unit that may consist of an office, in law dwelling, gym, and more.

These additional features increase the personal value of a home whereby they offer personal and private space while also providing communal space for family gatherings.
