Bedroom Addition Remodeling Project

By: Danny Lipford

To provide additional interior space for a bedroom and bath on a house with a small lot, we enclosed an outdoor courtyard on the back of the home.

Steps in building bedroom addition include:

  • Remove the existing courtyard roof
  • Construct roof over the addition area
  • Add and compact fill dirt for the concrete floor
  • Pour the concrete slab floor
  • Frame up walls for the addition
  • Cover outside walls with plywood sheathing and housewrap
  • Added heating/cooling unit and ductwork for addition
  • Rough in plumbing and wiring
  • Insulate walls and ceiling
  • Hang and finish drywall
  • Install doors, windows, and trim molding
  • Prime and paint walls and woodwork
  • Brick exterior walls
  • Lay, sand, and finish hardwood flooring
