Let me preface this by saying a definitive answer would require more information (such as the age of the current home, type of foundation, and the proposed floor plan for the addition)

The cost can range anywhere from $100 - $225 per square foot, depending on many of the factors listed below:

-The type of siding (ex: cedar vs. vinyl)
-Type of roof (ex: wood vs. asphalt)
-Lighting fixtures
-Plumbing fixtures
-Trim work
-Type of flooring
-Windows & Doors: Type and number of each
-Type of Heating/Cooling
-Type of Insulation (Foam vs. fiberglass)
-Number of Bedrooms/Bathrooms


If the current home is not structurally significant enough to hold a second floor, it is not just a question of cost per square foot, but if a simple addition is possible at all

The Primary consideration is: Do the current zoning and wetlands regulations permit this type of addition? My group is very experienced in the process (especially in Greenfield Hill) and would be happy to walk you through the necessary research and answer any questions you may have.

We also work very closely with local builders and contractors, and I would be happy to give you more specific recommendations. When you have the time, feel free to email me at, or call me at 203.650.1583 and I'd be happy to chat.

Maybe $200 sq ft. The variables are what you put into the bathrooms, kitchens, roofing. If you wanted a wood shake roof that is considerably more than asphalt. Contact me if you need a contractor's name.

Too many factors that need consideration, therefore contact a few local contractors for free estimates...
