Deciding to invest in your current home by adding more space is a big decision. Without a doubt, additions are one of the most costly home projects you can undertake. With the cost though, comes great rewards. The market is showing that more and more homeowners are choosing to invest the money they would otherwise spend on real estate and legal fees, back into their current homes in the form of adding on more space. Additions give you the flexibility to stay in your home, while tailoring it to your family's needs. Master suites, larger living areas, and additional bedrooms and baths are the most commonly added spaces. Two story additions are also becoming popular because they allow for the addition of all of the above, while maximizing the use of the added space. Additions should be an extension of your current space, making sure to not diminish the authenticity of the original house, but rather be fluid, building upon and enhancing it.
