Whenever you plan any project of this scale, you need to have clear goals set. First consider what you are trying to accomplish with a home addition. Not just what type of room but do you need a quiet space for an office or do you want to move your family room closer to the kitchen. Picture yourself living in it and what impact it will have on your life. Also, don’t be afraid to dream a little. Now is the time for it.
Next make a list of your must-haves and like-to-haves. It may be difficult to know what is possible and affordable at this point but having a list of goals will help you and your designer to create a plan that works.
Determining a budget for a home addition is the most difficult part this early in the process. Many factors will come into play so it’s important to get a designer involved early in the planning stage. The layout of your home and property, the age of your home, and of course the home addition you need will all factor into the budget. You can, however, have an idea of what you are willing to spend and maybe an absolute maximum you cannot exceed.
