DERRY, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HomeAdditionPlus.com unveiled today its HouseSight community, a home improvement themed social networking environment. HouseSight is a free on-line platform for homeowners to post and manage their home improvement projects, and to interact with other members to share home remodeling experiences and knowledge.
Once registered, HouseSight members can complete their profile information and create project folders. In each folder a member can write a project description, and upload pictures and other related files associated with the particular home improvement project. They can even embed a video of it. If the project privacy settings are set to public, a unique project view page is created and viewable to members and the public. HouseSight members also have the ability to rate projects and to send messages to fellow members.
HouseSight also offers portability of home remodeling project information. A member, for example, can upload pictures, blueprints and bills of material files to the project folder and access/download them remotely from another computer on the internet.
In addition, the highest ranking home improvement projects, along with the most viewed and most recent ones, are listed on various home remodeling category pages. Moreover, members and non-members can search HouseSight’s database for specific project types.
Along with providing home remodeling management and sharing functions, HouseSight also provides one-stop-services for finding pre-screened local contractors, displaying contractor reviews, purchasing house plans, and buying home improvement materials and tools online via its third party relationships.

For homeowners there are no fees for using or becoming a registered member of HouseSight. Unregistered HouseSight guests will have limited access to some of the project information and services and will not be able to rate projects or interact with registered HouseSight members. HouseSight.com registration is fast and simple. Once approved, newly registered members can immediately begin uploading their home remodeling project information and sharing their own experiences with other members.
