I would like to know the approx. cost to build a home addition of 500 sq ft vs 1000 sq ft.

For 500 sq ft, I would like to extend 250 sq ft from the back of my house for both 1st and 2nd floor.

For 1000 sq ft, I would like to extend 500 sq ft from the back of my house for both 1 st and 2nd floor.

Thanks in advance!

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 $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.
