How to add onto small ranch home, 1008 sq. ft. without breaking the bank. Current bedroom for young boy is 9x8 with no closet.

Asked by jnjteam33, Madison, WI Wed Jul 24, 2013

We would like an extra full bath also. We've considered a garage addition with master suite above the garage addition that way we wouldn't need a new foundation. We'd convert current garage into living room/dining room. How long would this addition take? Thank you. any ideas of what to do?

Great question and it seems you may have come up with a good solution if you do not mind
loosing the garage. There is a house on the corner of Union St and Davis Rd that put a second
floor above the entire house. This could be a valueable contractor to get in touch with. Like all other
projects like this, get at least 3 contractors over for a quote and get their ideas and input. You are definitely on the right track to seek out ideas before the decision. Good job and good luck! Keep us posted.
