Adding a Two-Story Addition to Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

Adding a two-story addition to your home can cost less per square foot than a single story addition, since only one foundation and one roof are needed. When considering adding a two-story addition to your home, consider how the addition will tie to the existing home and be sure you aren’t overbuilding for the neighborhood.
