Building up is great way to add value to your home without sacrificing your outdoor space. More importantly, though, this type of extension is the perfect solution if you want to increase the amount of available space in your home. You’ll be able to add bedrooms, an office, another bathroom or an apartment, which you could rent without even having to move.
Most homes are able to accommodate a second story. Of course, before beginning any work whatsoever, make sure the zoning laws in your municipality permit this type of renovation. Once you’re given the green light, you’ll need to choose the right contractor for your project. Ideally, you’ll want to hire a professional to take care of the entire renovation from start to finish. This means having someone on board for the consultation, evaluation, planning and construction of every little detail, such as the room layout, interior finishing and exterior siding. Having the right specialist by your side will allow you to continue living in your home without having to lift a finger during the project.
A second story addition to your bungalow is nothing short of spectacular. It will add value to your home while making it far more spacious and visually stunning. If you want, you could even take this opportunity to redesign the ground floor to include a more functional kitchen or cathedral ceilings to maximize lighting. It’ll be like moving into a brand new home without having to leave your neighborhood.
