Single use spaces seem to be a thing of the past. Make the most of every nook and cranny with clean and innovative room-dividing tactics. There is a vast number of opportunities with any given room. Often this is overlooked by many forgetting about the vertical space your room offers. Shelving, ladders, and platforms can open various doors and even function as room dividers.
STORAGE WITH CHARACTER
As we spend more time organizing our spaces, we’re adding more custom millwork throughout the home to create the functionality to maintain our daily lives. Built-in storage and shelves maximize the space in your home while making it simpler to stay organized and clutter free. Underappreciated nooks are now becoming functional space with a home. It’s time to imagine and discover areas under stairs, over doors, and beneath floors where you can create usable space.
SAVOR NATURAL ELEMENTS
Once of the easiest, cheapest, and most beautiful natural elements that many forget about is natural sunlight. Natural daylighting can make any room come alive, it makes colors pop in your furnishings and wall decor, while it also makes humans feel healthy and inspired. Whether you use windows, doors, borrowed light from solar tubes extended from your roof into closets or dark bathrooms, natural light can have a effect no other throughout your living interiors. Bring the natural elements into your home.
Perhaps no other building material plays such a key role in your home as siding.

Siding is available in a wide range of materials, colors, and styles to fit virtually any budget. Because your return on investment is always an important consideration for a home remodeling project, take comfort in the knowledge that siding replacement is one renovation that typically carries a good return.

As you can imagine, foundations must support an immense weight. When the earth below the foundation isn’t able to maintain integrity, the foundation sinks. Signs your foundation could be compromised is when cracks appear, windows and doors stick, sagging or uneven floors, and a settling/tilted foundation. Regardless of whether you choose to repair or replace the foundation, it is vital to resolve the initial problem. Sightline Builders is here to help you find the best solution to your foundation problems.
INDOOR-OUTDOOR LIVING AREAS
Start by creating a large entryway. Don’t settle for a small door on a large wall. Large French doors and collapsible window walls are great options. Next, think about how the indoor and outdoor spaces will be an extension of each other. Coordinate your decor between both spaces. To add to the indoor-outdoor flow, opt to partially cover your outdoor area. While this will provide shade from the sun and cover from the rain, it also contributes to the unity of the space. Ultimately, these spaces expand your home’s entertainment potential, rain, or shine.
DECK & PERGOLA – BACKYARD OASIS
Now more than ever, outdoor living is in. No matter the size, backyards are meant to be a source of enjoyment and refuge, a place in which to escape when you want to unwind, relax, and have fun. Is it time to create a space that is your own private oasis? A place where you want to spend time, relax in the sun, practice yoga, read, or be with your friends and family. Whatever your pleasure Sightline Builders is here to help bring that vision to life.
ACCESSORY DWELLING UNITS
Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) are a flexible feature that can meet an array of needs and trends for homes and homeowners today: affordability, wellness, multigenerational living, and remote work. These structures generally are detached from the main house and range in size between 500 and 800 square feet but as large as 1,200 square feet. Increased approval from planning and building departments has boosted ADU popularity and constructability.
The question of renovating versus rebuilding a house is one worth discussing. Many factors go into the decision, and it’s often not a clear-cut solution either way. Factors, like the historical significance of a building, the condition of the house, “green” considerations, and possible demolition setbacks may come into play when deciding whether to renovate or rebuild.
