How can I expand my house ?

If you grow tired of your old house and you don’t want to buy another one, you do have an option. You can make it much bigger by adding space to your house. There are different methods on how you can expand the space in your house. This task is a little challenging but with the right tools and materials, your finished project will be worth the effort.

First, you have to make a decision on the number of rooms you want to add in your house and the uses of each room like den, extra bath, bedrooms or something else. Create a plan on how you want to make your space bigger, whether outwards, downwards or upwards. Make sure to check local ordinances on your location before you start your house’s expansion.

Inquire with your local city hall and keep all your permits needed in the expansion of your house. Then, make an estimate on how far can your budget go with the addition of your house. You can check the price of materials needed or how much a professional contractor cost. Compare how much would it cost you and get the difference if you will hire a contractor or if you do the job yourself.

Create a new room or make a new one out of the rooms that you already have in your house. You can do some renovations in your attic or in your basement. You can also add a basement if you do not have one. You can even close your carport in to make your house space larger. If your house lot has an extra space to accommodate a wing, you can create one.

If you are planning to hire a professional contractor, make sure to get their reference and license number before hiring them. You can call contractors to make them estimate the cost for the addition, as well as the amount of time needed to finish the project.
