Good evening, DMMMMX7.
a 16 x 11 morning room price could vary a LOT depending on materials, finishes and woodwork and detailing. The cheapest would be to buy a prefabricated sunroom, which should start at about $7,000 plus installation. and go on up to You need to check your current slab though. If you load your slab with a building and it is too thin or there is inadequate thickness/footing under the walls, your slab could crack and require replacement. I regularly see price per square foot for new home construction at $100+/s.f., which could make your morning room $17,500. If it were me, I'd set a preliminary budget and talk to contractors and prefab sunroom manufacturers. If you appreciate an answer, please give "thumbs up".

Contact a licensed general contractor or builder for a quote. Do you currently have a buyer's agent? If not, contact me to get in the home and I'll help you negotiate a price on it where you can feel comfortable spending the extra money on the addition.

Congrats on finding your home. I would start by getting a couple of different quotes from different contractors. Your Realtor should have some referrals for you. If not, give me a call.

Good afternoon,

Call Kola Construction or Tom Pruitt Builders or Centaur Construction. You can get their phone numbers with google. For a rough estimate, I suggest including photos with your email. The addition cost will depend on materials used and the design.

Congratulations on your decision to purchase a home!

My best advice is that you contact an experienced general contractor to take a look at the project and give you a quote. if you are really serious about the house - get several quotes. Realtors are definitely NOT qualified to give you an estimated cost for a home addition. We would not even be able to give you a meaningful idea of the value it would add to a home without knowing the neighborhood, the size of the home, the quality of the addition, etc. A GC will be able to, not only provide you with cost estimates, but also provide let you know if the lot set-backs will allow for the addition - another very important consideration! Best success!

This is impossible to answer without seeing the house:
Also, we are Realtors, not Contractors.

Please search for General Contractors or Remodeling Contractors.

Anything we tell you will be guess-work and useless.

Good luck and may God bless
