Upper Floor Additions

The Perfect space can design and build a second storey addition that not only provides space but also adds value to your home.

Lift your Perfect Space

A second storey addition is a common renovation for people looking to add major living space onto their home. These add-a-level renovations transform single level ranch and cape homes into spacious two-story colonials. The Perfect Space has designed countless story addition plans, so we can help your family get a good idea of how much this type of renovation can cost you.

Pure Living Space for Every Budget

Adding pure living spaces such as bedrooms and family rooms is often cheaper to construct than adding rooms with plumbing. So if you're on a tight budget, consider adding a second floor with only bedrooms. This could be much more cost effective than doing the same but adding a level renovation with bedrooms and an added bathroom.

This involves an analysis of your slab and the need for strategically placed underground piers inside and around the perimeter. A similar analysis has to be done if your home is built on a “pier and beam” foundation up off the ground. Critical structural details like beam sizes should all be spelt out in the plans before you get any estimates. An architect’s opinion about remodelling and structural issues is not enough, and they are notoriously low on the cost of such projects.
