Looking for a ball park estimate for a second story addition. House is 1000 Sq feet. There are 2 possibilities I am considering. 1. The second story has 4 bedrooms and a bath this would include the addition of an ensuite on the mainfloor. 2. The second story has four bedrooms and a bath and an ensuite.

Again, I am really looking for a ball park here just to consider whether to even consider it as a possibility.

Your first step is to take your property survey to your local zoning-building department at city hall. They can tell you what the regulations are for your area of town or city.

Cost to build a home addition vary from $250 per square foot on the cheapest end to $500 / sq. ft. or even more for custom top notch work. Accurate estimated can be provided only after analyzing architectural drawings with all technical details, calculating number of man-hours for completing the project and determining the total expenses for materials, fixtures and finishing products.

Committee of Adjustment will cost $ 1,500 if you are closer than 6 ft. to the property side line and apply for a variance.

The fact is that most additions go beyond budget, schedule, and patience. With any renovation, you must factor in technical and logistical issues including: crew delays, scheduling conflicts, back ordered products, delivery issues, etc.
