Will I decease the value of my home if I convert my formal living room to a dining room & use space from current dining room to increase kitchen?

What kind of work do you need done?

I know a few I can refer you to, but could you specify what all you need? (ex. Carpentry, plumbing, HVAC, Electrical, Concrete, etc.)

How much would it cost to add a 600 square foot addition, new septic, and full basement in the Dayton/Cincinnati, OH area? I would want to remodel the 1200sq ft after we have the addition on, but plan to do that slowly....this would include the kitchen (a few years down the road).

James Deskins answered:
Extended Loft or a 5th bedroom?
Buyer, 5 bedroom homes are not very sought after. My guess is that most buyers would want 4 bedrooms + a loft, not 5 bedrooms. That has been my experience.
