Needing more space is one of the biggest issues homeowners face, and if you’re comfortable with your home and the interest rate on your mortgage, relocaing just to add a few extra square feet is out of the question. As interest rates and property values have risen over the past few years, we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of home addition projects starting up. Considering the costs of relocating, and that many homeowners have unbeatable mortgage interest rates, it makes sense that additions are becoming the financially-sensible option for adding on space.
Second story additions are a great option for expanding your home’s living space, boosting property value, or making your living environment truly yours—whether you’re looking for the primary suite of your dreams, a bespoke workspace, or just more room for the family. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll take a deeper look at the world of second story additions, exploring design options, delving into structural considerations, and uncovering the benefits of expanding your existing home.
