Cost of home addition
We know that at some point we will need to add onto our 860 square foot 2 bedroom 1 bathroom house. We are a family of four and while our kids are young, we think that as they get older they will need their own space, especially since they are different genders.
We recently completed a 300 square foot in law cottage that cost about $115,000 total (a prefab build) but are wondering about the cost of building up, lifting the house and building underneath, or building out. My hope is to be able to either build up or lift the house to be able to take advantage of the Golden Gate Bridge views in a way we couldn’t building out unless we went out and up. At the very least, we would like to add another bedroom and bathroom, probably a master suite.
Has anyone done a similar project recently and how much did it cost? Any other tips? We are probably a few years away from actually doing this but need to get our ducks in a row.
