Metairie Camelback Addition

Camelback Addition in New Orleans

If your home is in a location you love, but need more space, you don’t necessarily have to start searching for a new house. A camelback addition from Design Management Group could be the solution you’re looking for. DMG gave these homeowners the full Design + Build treatment with a full home renovation and second story camelback addition. The home addition includes an extra bedroom with walk-in closet and full bathroom, perfect for this growing family. Recessed lighting and energy efficient windows were installed throughout the home to keep energy costs low and the double vanity with undermount sinks in the new bathroom makes the morning routine a breeze. With the 800 square feet of additional living space, these homeowners gained the extra space their growing family needed and can still enjoy the neighborhood they love.

If you’re still wondering “what is a camelback addition?”, we can help with that too. A camelback addition is a half-story extension, usually added to the rear of a home. It can be a charming way to add extra space while preserving the curb appeal of your property because the addition is often not visible from the front of the home. This style of home gained popularity in the New Orleans area in the late 19th century and is still favored with homeowners today.
