I was wondering how much it would cost to add a two story addition plus basement. The size would be 27'x12'. The 2nd story would be a M-bedroom with an Ensuite bath. The main floor would be kitchen space with family room.

I also would need to re wire the whole house as it has Aluminum wiring.

i also would like to have a garage added to the side of the house. 14'x24'

Rough estimates are very welcome and any advice would also be welcomed.

Hi Phil,

Ballpark numbers and comments:

Would not do the basement. Two story addition only, finished, around $160K

Garage is roughly $26K.

We typically work with peoples budgets to give them as much as possible for their money, in a very transparent fashion. We also prepare all of the design, engineering and building permit.

going to be really!! expensive..the two together and wiring rough estimate (min. costs, could be 20% more as per your materials choices & site issues):

-addition 2 story 27x12: $80-$100,000

-basement under addition including excavation: $30-40,000

-rewire entire house and patch resulting holes needed: $20,000-$40,000

-permits, engineered drawings needed: $2-4,000

*I typically advise clients to only do this scale if they really liked the property or the land is worth alot and intended a long term residence as you will not recover the money in less than 10-20 years if sold
