I would like to find out what kind of extension I could put onto the back of my bungalow for a budget of $100,000. I am not looking for high end, but good finishes.

Only looking for ideas right now.

In order to give you any kind of real estimate more detail is required. Would you be doing a full excavation and adding space in the basement as well or would it just be an insulated crawl space? What kind of site access is there for excavation equipment? What is the existing siding finish on the house and would that have to be matched. What kind of roofing is there and how would the new roof tie in with the existing? How many windows and/or doors would there be? What type of flooring would be going in and how would it tie into the existing flooring? Is there a bathroom or a kitchen expansion involved as part of the addition? Any one of these items and questions could have a significant impact on the cost of the addition and therefore how much you could do for $100,000.00.

Not much help but food for thought.

A rough idea of desired footage and shape of building would be easier to determine the cost.

The very rough idea for such request is about 300 sqft addition. No one would be able to provide an exact quote without having the plans and specifications available.

Do you know how much square footage you would be adding? Also what would you be adding to this extensions. e.g. bedrooms, washrooms, kitchen?

Probably about 400 square feet and it would be bedroom and a bathroom. I am looking for a rough estimate of how much that would cost.
