I was just curious if anyone could help me get a rough estimate as to how much it would cost to raise the height of the upper floor of a house. I just bought my first home, and the height of the upstairs floor is ridiculously small (around 5 ft in some spots.) I'm looking to have it extended to 8-10ft. The home is 1514 sqft. Thanks.
This is basically like tear down and build a new second floor addition with new structure and roof trusses.
Cost to build a home addition vary from $250 per square foot on the cheapest end to $450 / 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.
