Hi Guys,

Just wondering, how much it will cost for a home addition per SQF? It will included a single garage, a bedroom and a bathroom (4 pieces) + a kitchen renovation?

Just as a very general idea it is aprox. $200/sq ft, using standard materials, using anything custom will raise this price. There are many other variables.

There are a lot of variables when it comes to additions. I always tell clients to start with a budget of $200/sqft. Finishes and difficulty or ease of construction could raise or lower that number considerably.

Hope this helps with your project dreams.

Thank You

A great rule of thumb is approximately $200 per square foot to start.

I am in total agreement with Mr Morris, as the quality of the finishing products, as well as the difficulty of the project will define the end price.

Also, location plays a factor in it as well.

Thanks everyone, it help me a lot all your answers, but I do have another question ..

Does the fact that the room/bad room will be on top off the garage will help me on my budget?
