4 Questions to Consider Before Adding Onto Your Louisville Kentucky Home

By Family Realty, LLC

Are you planning on adding onto your Louisville Kentucky Home? Before you hire a contractor to start doing the actual work on your home it’s important for you to ask these 4 questions.

#1 – Before Hiring A Builder, Do This….

Although most homeowners in Louisville will hire a contractor or builder to work on the addition to their homes, the best thing you can do before anyone starts working on your home is to hire an actual architect to draw the plans for the home addition.

This step is important because, an architect will draw plans which will make the addition to your Louisville Kentucky Home seem like it’s “always” been part of your home instead of a very obvious add on which you made to your home.

#2 – What Is Your Renovation Budget?

Did you know that adding a bedroom or bathroom to your home could cost up to $50,000? It gets even higher if you plan on adding a family room to your home since most family room additions can cost up to $100,000 or more.

Before saying yes to having an addition to your home it’s important for you to think about how much you are willing to spend because, a home addition can add up very quickly and you may ultimately end up spending more money than you have.

#3 – How Can You Bring Some Costs Down?

To save big money on your home addition you should start looking for ways to bring costs down by doing some of the demolition work yourself or you should think about some of the things you may be able to live without, at least for now, so you can get the actual work done on your home.
