For most of us, the very thought of a home addition can be stressful and overwhelming. Our job is to minimize all those feelings and ensure your complete comfort by keeping you well informed every step of the way.
Each home addition is unique and, unlike remodeling an existing kitchen or bathroom, home additions tend to stretch the imagination. Often, clients will come to us confused, not knowing where to start with their home addition. Our years of experience and creativity allow us to patiently guide you step by step guide in order to assist you in the home addition process. Our experience allows us to answer most of your questions before you ask.
When we combine our vast experience, inspired creativity and cutting edge industry knowledge with our client's vision, the result is stunning. Each and every aspect of your addition, no matter how big or how small, is taken into consideration. We're absolutely committed to working closely with you in designing the space to enhance the home's contour, beauty, and final form. The universal goal of every addition is to bring greater dimension to your home and family.
We offer a proven track record of delivering both residential and commercial additions, having successfully designed and built:
Two Story Extensions:
Two story home additions are perfect for homes that are already two stories, but need a two story extension of the existing house to make room for additional rooms and amenities. The most common 2 story addition transforms the existing house into an L or T shape.
A common two story addition or multi-level addition adds a family room addition on the lower level, along with a master bedroom suite above. If your home already has the master bedroom, the upper level may become additional space for a game room or guest rooms.
Although the extensions mentioned above are common, they may not be what you need. The lower level of your addition may become an enclosed porch or sunroom, a kitchen, dining room or eating area, or even an in-law suite.
Second Story Extensions:
Sometimes people confuse 2 story addition plans with adding another level to their house. When you want to add a second or third floor over the existing structure floor, we call that an add-a-level house addition or a second story extension. The design and function of a second-story addition affects the rest of your home, from finishes to mechanical work to structural work. The right design will make your second story look like it was always a part of your home, and enhance both curb appeal and your home's functionality.
Commuting expense, time savings and life style have popularized telecommuting and work-from-home options among many professionals. Have you ever thought about turning underutilized space in your home, such as a garage, basement or spare bedroom into something useful? If you work at home, or have thought about "telecommuting" from home, consider turning this space into a home office.
How To Successfully Create Your Perfect Home Addition

What is the size and scope of your project? Our extensive experience with New Jersey home owners means we know what questions to ask in order to help you develop and finalize your vision long before construction begins.

Defining your specific needs helps us create an addition that is perfect for you and your lifestyle.
Finding the Right Addition Expert
The search for the right team to execute your addition can be more overwhelming and confusing than the project itself.

The professionals at J Millett Construction will be shopping with you and educating you every step of the way.
Executing the Addition Project
Hiring the right team and understanding the renovation process is vital, to ensure you have an enjoyable, worry free experience.

However, most of the horror stories we hear from dis-satisfied homeowners who selected the wrong firm are completely unnecessary.
Over the years J Millett Construction has developed and refined a proven, step-by-step process designed to eliminate unexpected problems, keep us on schedule and allow you to enjoy your home addition renovation. Frankly, this process makes our job a lot easier (surprises and delays end up costing us a lot of money) and ensures completely satisfied customers.
