Hello Tanya,

Depending on the depth of the renovation I would always budget anything from $2 per square foot to $5 per square foot if engineering is required.

Hello Tanya,

As a residential home designer, my response would be in agreement with Justin from Cachelin Construction below, in that it really depends on the complexity of the renovation. We do very small $750 renovation designs to $6000+ Massive renovations involving redesigning entire houses with extensive additions.

I would expect a 1000 sqft addition to be somewhere in between, but without knowing the specifics of the project it's impossible to give a closer estimate.

Thank you for the question.
