Unique Builders & Development can create the new room of your dreams, from concept to completion. Location is the first step on the list of things to do. Caution is necessary when deciding on the place you want this new room to go. A bad choice can cost you money in the cold times of the year and cause it to be a place you cannot stand to be in when it is hot outside.
The first decision you must make in designing the new space will be the function of the room. With room addition plans in hand you can then begin the process of finding a general contractor and/or subcontractors. In other words, they know that certain room additions cost so many dollars per square foot.
For example, adding 200 square feet of space onto a kitchen could cost anywhere from $48,000 to $95,000. Please view our home addition gallery to get ideas about building home additions or sunrooms in Arlington, Washington DC, Fairfax, Alexandria, Ashburn, Leesburg, Loudoun County and surrounding areas. Certain areas have an easier time supplying builders and contractors with materials. I just gave a homeowner an estimate for 21×33 family room addition plus a covered patio that will be 21×20. This may seem unnecessary but this is one of the features of Britain’s Carbon-neutral house.
Building the addition yourself could cause issues if not done properly, you could create a draft in turn putting a drain on your homes energy efficiency and raising the average cost of your energy bills, and possibly even lowering the value of your home.
That is why the cost of the material varies, depending on the climatic conditions of the region where you reside. In addition they wanted more basement space below the new kitchen for storage and a larger laundry room. Common additions include: family rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, sun-rooms and even in-law apartments. Also as the article explains, the cost of a room addition project has many variable factors, including the location, the materials used, the amount of retrofitting/demolish-in and home building market conditions. The average cost runs from $15-$30 per square foot, depending on the lumber charges and labor costs.
