Do you love your neighborhood?

Do you love your school district and don’t want to move? But you have a major problem, you are outgrowing your home. You need more space but you don’t want to move. What do you do?

You can call Prime 1 Builders, we can help! Prime 1 Builders is quickly growing to become one of the best remodelers in the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. We listen to the needs of our clients and help you achieve your goals of more space. Whether you already have plans, or you have an idea in your head of what you would like to see happen to your existing home or need a referral to an architect, we can help!

We offer Design/Build services. Whatever the situation, we always begin by listening to these thoughts and ideas to develop a better understanding of the client’s vision. We then build on that vision by developing an organized written plan. And then we work closely with you to complete every detail.

Prime 1 Builders did just that recently with the completion of an addition in the Villas of North Park and gave the clients exactly what they wanted! They wanted more entertaining space. We added an addition on to the back of their existing home that gave them an additional 675 square feet of living space. A large vaulted ceiling was added on the first floor – connecting it to the existing family room by removing the rear wall of the house.

The owners wanted a very functional entertaining space and we designed a fully functional cherry wood bar into the space. The bar was complemented with matching built in cherry book cases in the original family room. The owners wanted to enjoy the very private surrounding of the trees in their backyard so we designed the rear wall of the home with a large expanse of glass to bring in natural light and enjoy the view.


They also wanted an open face fireplace with realistic gas logs. We were given a photo (from Dupont Registry) of a fireplace concept with a large custom cherry wood mantle and natural stone hearth and wall surround. The client was thrilled when we told them we could create a look-alike version of this photo. Other amenities that had to be considered were mixing other wood finishes in the room including hardwood flooring and a Tongue & Groove paneled ceiling. A small deck off the rear of the great room allows the clients to also enjoy the outdoor privacy of this addition. The clients are thrilled!

Whatever your desires we are here to do our best to make your dreams a reality and work within your budget.
