Thinking About A Second Story Addition for Your Home?

Thinking About A Second Story Addition for Your Home?
Published July 9, 2020 by ultrastarter in Articles

Looking to add more space to your home with the addition of a second story? Doing so could nearly double the square footage of your home, however, it can be tricky to do. A second story addition in Houston can be a complex project, which is why you need someone with great experience and expertise to see the job through from start to finish.

One of the latest trends for homeowners in 2020 is the need to create additional space. As homeowners are spending an increasing amount of time at home, there is an immediate need for dedicated and private spaces for work, gym, schooling and cooking. If your space is in short supply, you only have two viable options: move or expand your living space.

In the Houston area, it could be difficult to find that extra space you need to feel comfort and enjoyment in your home. Moving is much more time consuming and can be significantly more expensive. An alternative is adding a second story which can provide more space, brighten the interior, and modernize the entire look and feel of your home – especially if you don’t have the lot size to build horizontally, as building up is less expensive than building out.

With a new addition, you can design the space to fit your specific needs as those needs change. From creating a new office to adding multipurpose spaces, the possibilities are endless. You can even modify the flow of your first story floor plan at the same time. That spiral staircase or higher kitchen ceiling can be yours at a fraction of what you’d pay if it was done as a separate project.

Not to mention you are preserving coveted yard space for your children to play or even add a swimming pool at a later date.
