How much is it to add square footage to a home?

Holidays got you begging Santa for a little more square footage? Here’s how much that’ll cost you (or Jolly Old Saint Nick) in 2021.⁣

The average range for a home addition is $20,000 - $100,000 in 2021 with most homeowners spending around $55,000 on a 240 sq.ft. addition on the first floor (⁣

The low-end cost is $7,000 for a first-floor bump out, while the highest is around $200,000 for a 1,000 sq. ft. second-floor addition with a roof.⁣
In general, expect to pay roughly $200 a square foot for a finished addition.⁣

Additions come in all shapes and sizes so it’s a jolly good idea to get several estimates and talk with multiple contractors before taking the plunge. ⁣

If you’re considering resale value as you plan, let me know. I’d love to share the additions and renovations I see having the greatest impact right here in our area.⁣
