Different Types of Home Additions
How is your addition going to connect to your home? Homeowners with a larger yard can expand onto the first floor, while homeowners with a more modest lot size may want to add a second story. A detached addition may also suit your needs better as well if your looking to add a mother in law suite for example.
The Larger Room Addition
A bump-out addition or room extension relocates one or more of the exterior walls in an existing room on the first floor to increase the square footage of that room. This method is often used for narrow bedrooms, cramped kitchens, or small living rooms.
The New Room Addition
A first-floor room addition provides a new room or rooms to the first floor of your home. If you are needing to add square footage to your existing home this is often the perfect solution. In todays housing market it makes more financial sense to increase the size of your existing homes footprint rather than list your home and search for a new one.
The 2nd Story Addition
For homes without an existing upper floor, a second-story addition can double the size of the house without reducing surrounding yard space. The entire roof will be removed, then the second-story addition will be built.
The Attic Addition
For homes with steep rooflines, an attic addition might be the way to go. Finished attics can make great large bedrooms, bonus rooms and offices that are away from the noise life constantly occurring below. With this type of addition, you may think about adding a dormer for more light and headspace.
The Detached Addition
An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a smaller, independent residential dwelling unit located on the same lot as a stand-alone single-family home. These structures are also called granny flats, accessory apartments or second units. These additions tend to be apartments above a garage, pool houses or in-law suites.

Frequently Asked Questions About Home Additions
Cost per square foot is a very poor way to gauge the cost of completing your home addition. Since all houses, properties, and family needs are different, it’s impossible to guess how much an addition will cost without talking to a local contractor. However, as a general guideline, you can expect to spend an average of $100 to $200 or more per square foot for building costs. In addition to building costs, you have to consider costs for furnishings and amenities. When you increase the square footage of your home, you also increase your heating and cooling energy costs. In addition, your property taxes will likely increase, since tax assessments are based on a home’s square footage.
Before adding on, assess your current living space and determine if the addition will accomplish your needs and solve your problems. If your house is small and doesn’t include a guest room, a bedroom addition would allow out-of-town family members and friends to visit more often. If your grandchildren love to play at your house, an added playroom would provide a safe space for activities.
Before you spend the money for a room addition, make sure it will add benefits to your lifestyle and give you needed space.
The cost of a home addition entirely depends on the type and the extent of the project you plan to make. That’s why it’s difficult to provide an estimate without more information on your individual project. Majority of the time a home addition is being built between 100-200 per square foot as a pricing range reference. In todays market majority of homes are being listed and selling for around 200 per square foot. In short building a home addition you will always be able to recoup your investment for equal or higher value.
Most municipalities have zoning restrictions that dictate what you can build and where you can build it. For example, in most Texas residential areas, you’re generally not allowed to build anything within 20 feet of the front of your property; 15 feet of the rear; and 7.5 feet of either side. There are also other building restrictions governing height which can limit room additions that build up instead of out. It’s best to talk to your contractor about local building codes that may impact your addition.
A room addition takes careful planning so it looks like it was always part of the house when it’s finished. You need to consider how the roofline of the addition connects to the house and how to enhance the style of the house with doors, windows and exterior materials and finishes.
Depending on your space needs and property size, you will need to decide if you should build up or build out. If your property size restricts building out, building up may be your only option to achieve your goals, but building up is always more expensive. Main-level additions are often the simplest, since they don’t require retrofitting the home’s foundation. Second-story additions often require structural retrofitting down to the foundation, as well as moving interior walls and removing exterior materials.
