How to Add an Additional Floor to Your Home

floor-additionDue to local ordinances and zoning laws, sometimes the only way to add room to a home is to go up. That is, add another floor to the house instead if expanding it on the ground level. What many homeowners don’t realize is that adding a second level is actually quite easy and affordable.

The addition of a second level starts with the removal of the existing room. The substructure is then increased in height. All plumbing, electrical and HVAC is easily installed since there is ready access to each system. Finally, a new roof is built over the new addition. It is a remarkably straightforward process.

When you need an extra bedroom, a game room, a workspace or even all three, adding an extra level to your home can be the most affordable option. In the Atlanta area, the team at Adapted Living Spaces has the experience and expertise to guide you through the process.
