Hi Hellie,
The previous answer are wide ranging because there are many variables. If you're doing a simply room addition such as a bedroom, you have electrical involved. Add a bathroom and you've also added plumbing and therefore cost. Be on the side of a hill and need extra support? Add more $. Coastal commission, set backs, special permits - all add more cost. Be sure to get referrals and check references. Anything over $500 requires a general contractors license these days. And, don't forget the cost of permits. Good luck!

You can get some idea of the cost using this remodeling estimator site...
Here is anothe remodeling cost estimator site to cross check the information.
I agree Jed that many construction wokers are under employed or unemployed. Make sure you use a licensed contractor.

I think you'll find it to be in the 2 to 3 hundred dollar range unless you are going up which will be closer to 5 hundred.
It might be cheaper now since many construction workers area out of work.
