Bathrooms are some of the most expensive rooms to add; plumbing, fixtures, tile, plus depending on where you are adding, roof, foundation etc. You'll need to talk to a local contractor with an idea of how big and what will be involved in the addition. If you are considering doing this for resale, chances are good the cost will outstrip the benefit. If it's for your own use, think long term to make the investment pay off.

Hi Nashah –
As you might expect, the devil is in the details! The price per square foot for additions or modifications can vary greatly depending on a property’s specific circumstances/conditions. Obviously, renovation costs for a home built in 1890 is not the same as one built in 1980 and so on. Therefore, you should always receive several proposals from qualified contractors to determine the best value for your budget – and yes, the lowest price is frequently not the best overall value. I would begin by writing out exactly what you want done to solve a specific deficiency. The more detail you can provide a contractor – right down to the type of door knob, the more accurate a price you will receive; undefined scope or materials equals cost/budget overruns. Also, keep an opened mind as to how to solve your specific problem. An experienced contractor might find a solution to your problem that differs from your idea – and it may save you money and provide a better fit to your overall home value. The biggest problem most consumers have is finding an honest and reputable contractor. On this I might be able to help - as a company, we maintain a prequalified list of suppliers that have performed various services to agents or agent clients. We here the "good, the bad and the ugly" on everything from architects, builders, contractors, plumbers, accountants, closet-make-over’s, etc., every type of service imaginable. If you would like a copy of this list just let me know. Hope this helps - cheers.

You should speak with 2-3 local contractors and ghet free estiamtes from them, prices can differ greatly between contractors, also make sure you ask for a list of references, go look aty their work and ask the home owners if tehy are happy with teh work, did the contractor finish on time and on budget. For instance adding a 16x20 room and bath averages $20,000 finished and can be more or less depending on things you add etc.
