When deciding on building a second floor addition to your home the possibilities are endless. You need to look at what kind of space you want to create. Do you need more bedrooms, an office, playroom, additional bathroom? Do you want a bath in the Master bedroom? Do you need walk in closet space? Start with an idea in your mind of what your personal needs are. The next step is to have a layout of the rooms with dimensions.
Below is some photos of the construction involved when the above home was remodeled. This family wanted a country style home with rap around porches. They also wanted a large bay window on the second floor to see into the backyard which is filled with beautiful flower gardens.
