What is the avg cost per sq ft to add an addition to a house by pushing the back out by 10 ft and that will include a bathroom?

Asked by Operasinger1024, Reseda, CA Sat Sep 17, 2011

We will not be changing the interior layout almost at all. The existing lvg room and bedroom will gain the extra 10 ft The bath we will add will share a wall with an existing bath and will share supply and drain. It will be part of the back bedroom. We hope to raise the ceilings in the altered lvg rm and bedroom to be vaulted and will need to take the HVAC off the roof. We will add approx 329 sp ft to an 1150 sq ft house and will go from 1 bath to two and with the back bdrm becoming a master suite.

Dear Operasinger

The two earlier posts are both correct but your best route is to contact a local subcontractor as what Anna recommended.

However, John's average cost is right on target depending of course on where you are located.

A quick check on the 2010 - 2011 cost vs value in your area of CA suggests that 100K would be average

Thumbs up to Sergio. He's spot on about using an experienced rehab contractor. As a RE broker and general contractor I can tell you first hand that not many licensed contractors are necessarily experienced in the rehab arena and could end up costing an investor a lot more money due to their lack of experience in this arena. Always us an experienced specialist.

You can figure about $100/sf to be safe.

For an accurate picture of costs, contact/invite a few local licensed contractors and ask for free estimates.....
