Question 1: I'm planning to add a master suite in the back of our house, is there a limit to the sqft for the addition?
- Answer 1: Generally no, but there are a few things to keep in mind. 1. Most cities impose more requirements and fees for adding more than 499 sqft, so best to stay within the figure unless you need a much larger space. 2. you'll need to consider side/front/backyard setback requirements and maximum building space against the total lot size.
Question 2: I want to add a master suite and a laundry room to my existing structure. Is there a good way to estimate the cost of construction?
- Answer 2: Yes and no. The cost varies depending the quality level you're looking for in craftsmanship and materials, any custom jobs you need, and the area you live in. The cost per sqft can range from $200 to over $500.
