Before you start anything talk to City Hall and an architect experienced with Cu code as you ended up wasting your money and resources. Everything you do need to be permitted. Non-permitted structure will lead to headaches as lender will not accept them during a sale. I had one deal the bank asked the seller to tear the improvements added.

A lot of it depends on if you are building up or building out. Building up you can typically save slightly because you do not need a new foundation and the roof will be similar in size as the original. A contractor will help you determine the cost. If you are not putting in a high cost kitchen I would guess under $200 sq.ft. I can referr you to a trusted contractor that specializes in remodels if you like.

Dear Vaishali,
The square footage price will depend on the quality level of products that you choose, whether very high end or average....anything from $175 to $275-300. In any given re-model or re-build, you need to consult a good Construction person, make sure you get all the required permits from the City, so that its all done as per code, and that will also add value to your property if you ever decide to sell. The Construction person will help by drawing up architectural plans, that also need to be approved by the City of Cupertino. There are several different kinds of roofs too, so price again will depend on what you choose.
I live and work with Coldwell Banker in Cupertino, have my kids in local schools. I have good vendor resources, construction persons and a good roofer. Please call me, no strings attached, i will be happy to help you in any way I can.
Be well and safe, regards,
