Frequently Asked Questions

What are the cheapest types of home addition?
If the cost of the addition is a significant factor in your project, you might want to consider building upwards rather than outwards. Adding a room to the second story of your house, such as a bedroom addition, is usually cheaper than extending rooms such as the kitchen on the ground floor. Adding a new bedroom can cost between $10,000 and $25,000 on average*. 
What are the advantages of adding a second story?
Building a second story addition allows you to gain more living space without losing any of your existing space outdoors. You also won't need to create any new foundations, because you won't be extending your home outward. 
What does an in-law addition involve?
Today many of us share homes with parents or grandparents, and an in-law addition simply means adding extra space for them to live in. This could take the form of a new bedroom or a whole guesthouse that's detached from your property. Other in-law additions involve basement or garage conversions, which can be cheaper ways of adding more space for family members.
Will an addition add value to my home?
If your house addition cost seems high, remember that it will likely add value to your home. The exact amount will depend on market conditions in your area, though, so speak to a local real estate agent if you’re planning to sell soon after your addition is complete or within a few years.
