Often, even people who are otherwise happy with their homes think, “We could use a little more space for entertaining,” or “That would be a great spot for a sunroom.” But turning that idea into reality can be a bit daunting. Moving from the vision of adding extra space to the reality of design and construction can overwhelm even the most enthusiastic of homeowners.



Orren Pickell can help. We’ve guided many homeowners through successful room and second-story additions and we know how to make the process flow smoothly and efficiently. For years, we’ve built custom-designed home additions, including luxury master suites, warm and welcoming family rooms, stunning sunrooms, award-winning kitchens, ultimate media and entertainment centers, gym powerhouses and elegant powder rooms, jack & jill bedrooms, just to name a few. We’ll bring your design vision to life, making your home work better for you and the way you live.
