Addition of Space in Room
You may need more space in your room which will eventually require remodeling. You can get more space by tearing away interior walls or adding a story above your home or even adding up your house’s footprint. You can even break your exterior wall and expand your room provided you have a yard space and also have the covenants allowance and approval on local zoning laws
In case you don’t find any space to expand your room, you will have to consider removing the interior walls to make a big bedroom by joining two smaller rooms. If you really wish to add a story and accommodate your master bedroom then you need to contact a qualified and experienced contractor to see if the base of your home is too strong enough to accommodate another story. Addition of another story will depend on the foundation of the house. If it was not made with the prospective of taking up additional weights to add up an additional story, then you will have to expend more in order to increase the size of the rooter and the foundation wall.
Such tasks can only be performed with the help of a professional designer and a contractor in order to get the right estimate, design, color and the overall cost involved.
