Is your home beginning to feel cramped? Is it time to add additional space and upgrade your home’s decor? A home addition is a perfect solution for you and your family. Not only are you avoiding the cost of an expensive move, but you can increase the overall value of your home with a home addition.

With a few modifications to your home, you can add an extra bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or even sunroom. This can be achieved through a side split addition or side addition. A home addition allows you to add valuable square footage and allows you to create customized spaces and modern design features.

How Much Does a Home Addition Cost? 

Home addition costs can vary based on the size of the project and the design features you want to include. Materials, cost of labour, permits, and any service upgrades will all play a role in the final cost of your home addition. For example, if you were doing a 300 sq ft room addition, you can expect to pay up to $120,000. 

  • Room addition: $300 to $400 per sq ft
  • Garage addition: $250 to $380 per sq ft
  • Sun room: $350 to $450 per sq ft

Your contractor will work with you to find the highest quality building materials to suit your budget so you can maximize your return on investment.

Types of Home Additions 

A home addition can help to improve the look and value of your home. There are several different design options that vary based on the land available and the kind of home addition you want to create. 

  • Second Story Additions – this type of addition allows you to expand your home vertically. This is the ideal option for homeowners with limited backyard space or who are looking to add additional bedrooms or sections of areas to your home. 
  • Bump-Out Additions – a bump-out lets you add space to areas on the ground floor, such as a kitchen or living room. Depending on the size of your landscape, you can potentially double the size of your home without having to move. 
  • Garage Additions – most families have multiple vehicles. A garage addition lets you create a customized space for your vehicle that transforms your garage beyond a simple storage space to a functioning garage and workshop.

Most home additions will require you to obtain building permits. Your contractor will work with you to ensure you have the right documents in order. Building permits can be done through your city or local municipality. All work will be followed up by a building inspector, who will have to sign off and confirm that the work was completed and met all standards and codes.

The length of time to complete a home addition will depend on what is required. Some home additions will require a new foundation to be dug and installed, while other additions may require the installation of supports if you are building a second-storey addition. 

Most home additions can be completed within 2 to 6 months based on the size and scale of your project.

In Toronto, there are certain limitations for house extensions including its size and the purpose behind building this extension. Most home homeowners will have no issues, as extensions or additions are generally built to create additional space. Work with your contractor to determine that your yard has the capacity to accommodate a home extension before you begin putting your plans together. For additional information, consult the City of Toronto by law amendment guidelines.

A home addition doesn’t generally require you to leave your home. There may be times when there will be disruption to services, so it is important to plan your schedule around your home addition.
