i would budget $200 - $250 a square foot for a nicely finished addition (hardwood and tile floors).

You should probably count on a septic upgrade to meet building code.

The engineering is usually not too complex if you use standard web truss joists for the floor, and the structure is not too complex. Your engineering would be done by the structural wood supplier, unless there is an unusual detail in the structure.
