Home Expansion in Matthews | Garage Addition Contractor

With a growing family in a neighborhood and location they love, these homeowners decided on an above-garage home expansion in Matthews. The new space added a large bonus room, a bedroom, a full bathroom, two large storage closets, a separate staircase and a very functional mud room.

Palmer’s Project Goals and Challenges

  • We wanted to create more functional living space for this growing family and marry it with the architecture of the existing home.


  • The design/build project involved building up and out over the garage, adding 762 square feet of heated living space and enlarging the garage itself by 171 square feet. 
  • The result was a wonderful addition of functional space, in a great, convenient neighborhood, which blends perfectly with the original home’s construction.
  • Enlarging the front and side of the garage made parking more convenient while adding needed storage capacity.
