Often times, people who want to add more space to their homes don’t know whether they should add more stories to their home or do a ground floor addition. There are a few determining factors that must be considered before either project is decided upon.
Some helpful questions are: Does your neighborhood have special tenants regarding home additions? Are you willing to sacrifice some of your yard space to increase the size of your home? If you have the land and are willing to give up some yardage, a ground level addition is the most economical option. However, if this is something you’re not willing to give up and are constrained horizontally, building upwards might be the best option for you.
As with every project, each one is unique and should be handled on an individual basis. If you’re hesitant on which type of home renovation is right for you, please contact us at Fort Rock Construction and we can help you get on the right track.
