Room Conversion

Could your existing living space be made more useful? Consider a room conversion. A room conversion takes an existing room and changes it so that a new form of room usage is created, within the same space. You can improve your home’s livability and increase your property values—without adding square footage.

For example, in one home we divided an office into two parts, creating an office and a bathroom to serve the office and adjoining bedroom. In another residence, we divided a living room to create an entryway and separate hallway to a basement apartment unit—while keeping part of the living room. For one family, we converted an attic into living space, creating two bedrooms and a bathroom.


An addition increases the square footage of your house, giving you more living space. Some examples of conversion and addition projects are pictured below.

I can trust The Careful Remodelers to listen so well the resulting work (sunspace addition) is either exactly what I'd originally envisioned or in many cases better. Pete repeats back what he's heard me say, first verbally then in writing and in this form he includes several options with accompanying prices. His experience and suggestions have often improved my ideas and I now feel like I'm living in a small Portland palace.  Nancy M.

Mr. MacIver designed and built a patio room and patio cover to replace the existing patio cover. He carefully walked us through the planning and construction process step by step. When we asked for changes in our original plans, he quickly worked up change orders and explained the changes to us clearly and professionally. The room is just exactly what we wanted and we look forward to using The Careful Remodeler for home improvement jobs in the future.  Ken K.
