We live in a two story home and we would like to push our kitchen space out towards the existing deck, approximately 12 feet and 16 feet wide.
Attached is a picture of what we would like the layout to look like as it is similar to how our kitchen lay out looks now. The bulkhead above the cabinet peninsula is where our current exterior wall is.
This new area would be where the nook would be, and as the picture shows, that would give us a spot for a large island. Keeping our kitchen sink and DW (on future peninsula) in the same area would keep some of the costs down, picture also included.
Question is, how much would it cost to add the addition, kitchen cabinet cost excluded? Any suggestions?
You should budget $25,000 for a 200ft2 single storey addition with unfinished basement or crawl space below and basic finishes. A new kitchen will add $30,000 to $60,000 depending on size and quality of finishes. The permit process will cost $3000 to $10000 depending on a few factors.
First you'll need to find out if you are allowed to build the addition by visiting your zoning dept with a site plan or survey of your property that shows the location of the existing house on the lot and you will need to know the size of your home.
I hope this helps. Your idea looks amazing by the way. Thank you for sharing the photos.

Thank you for your reply.
We are ok with doing the addition in stages to provide the needed space sooner than later and spreading out some of the costs.
Yes, first step will be to get the county's approval.
