Adding space in the form of an addition is a popular remodel. Home additions come in two varieties: those that go up, and those that go out. When space, lot size, zoning restrictions, and cost are an issue, or when it's an aesthetic choice, a second or even a third story addition is just what the doctor ordered.

When you are not limited to your home's current foot print, when you can extend the perimeter of your home outside the space it now occupies without violating zoning and setback restrictions, then adding out is definitely the addition for you. Regardless whether you need an addition for a family room, new master suite, an in-law suite, a home office, or an extra bathroom, increasing your home's size also adds value to your home.

According to a Cost vs. Value study, a family room addition returns more than 68% within the first year! You will be amazed at how much easier life can be with a little extra space.
