When it comes to creating more space in your home, there’s no project that can add more square footage than a second-story addition. You may have considered this possibility before, but dismissed it as either impossible or out of your reach.
Please don’t let go of the idea of a second story so fast! We’ve worked on many second story additions and other expansions to homes, such as a project for a Los Angeles family where we added an additional 2,200 square feet of living space to their house so their family could grow. Often this is a much better investment than purchasing a new home. If you love where you live, but there aren’t many options on for-sale homes in the area, a second story is a great alternative to attempting to move.
