What to Consider Before Building a Home Addition

Maybe you need more space to accommodate a growing family. Maybe you’d like to build onto your house to make quarters for in-laws, or a game room, or a studio. Here are some tips for expanding your space:

Home Additions are an Important Undertaking

Whatever the addition will be, it will also affect the next owner of your home. Depending on the look and quality, an addition can increase or decrease the value of your home. There are a few important aspects to an addition that should be considered. For example, it needs to look good, blend well, and match the neighborhood’s aesthetic. Last, but not least, your addition should follow any Homeowners’ Association (HOA) design requirements.

When building an addition, it’s also very important that you gain the approval of local authorities. You, or your contractor, should acquire the necessary building permits from your municipal government before construction begins.
