I was wondering what it would cost to add a bedroom over my garage, it would be about 350 square feet and depending on prices might have a bathroom. Any idea of how much this would cost?

I was also thinking of finishing the attic into a play room or something simple. I have 2x4 currently in it and I understand that I need 4x4 to support the floor? Is this something that I should consider doing as well?

Without a set of drawings and unsure of what you want, there are many things to think about. Just from what you are describing, you're probably looking at between $ 50K to $ 65K. Get at Least 3 Estimates, go to BBB in you're area.

Hi Stephen,

To get a detailed quote you would need drawings. Just an estimate it could set you back anywhere from $55-$70k including plans, permits through to completion.

Kind Regards
