Home Addition FAQs

Is it cheaper to add on or build up?

At the end of the day, building out will always cost less than building upwards. But when it comes to building your dream home, there can be a pretty big difference between the two.

How much will my home addition cost?

It is pretty standard to want to know what your home expansion will cost. However, your total bill will vary greatly depending on your needs, size, and scope. Unless they have a money tree growing in their backyard, most homeowners end up making adjustments here and there to fit the budget. Depending on the existing conditions of your home and perks you want to add, the cost can vary greatly.
