I'm am looking for a general ballpark cost figure (high/low) /sq ft or /sq m on adding a floor to an exsisting bungalow, the end result being a 2 storey house.

Hi Tony, as of 2009, the costs to add a second story were anywhere from $100 to $300 per square foot. Depending on the details and the level of finish you are looking for, this could vary by up to 300%. As you can see, it is almost impossible to be anywhere near accurate or even create a budget without a lot more info.

You would have to take your proposed project a little farther along before even creating a proper budget.

If you are serious about this, you should post your requirements in the projects section and get some local responses.

Good Luck,

Jim Kuzma
