Unfortunately, our original homes don’t always meet our needs - especially when additional space becomes necessary for children and extended family members. The good news is that it is entirely feasible for our homes to grow with us - all it takes is a great team to get the job done. At Refresh, we specialize in providing bespoke renovation designs and builds along with end-to-end project management; making it easy for you to achieve your second-story addition on-time and on-budget.
To provide you with an accurate cost estimate, a Refresh Renovations specialist will need to look into the specifications and feasibility of your project. As a rough guide, second-story addition can start from around $300 per square foot. Costs will increase along with project specifications and requirements. Keep in mind that second-story additions are a long-term investment that can add value to your property; homeguide.com states that a second-story addition can result in an investment return of around 60%.
A second-story addition will likely require a master permit, sub-permits and a Notice of Commencement. Your Refresh Renovations specialist can take care of these applications for you, along with any historical home requirements.
If you are looking to add more living space to your property, there are plenty of ways to achieve this - a second-story addition being only one of them. Refresh can also help you with home extensions, basement excavations/renovations, in-law suites and granny flat designs and builds.
