Second Floor Addition to a Ranch Style Home Quincy MA.


As families grow and people change, homes should too. Home additions can be a great solution to add living space, or expand existing rooms to better fit your lifestyle.

Copia Real Estate Design & Build offers a holistic solution for your home addition needs with in-house designers, architects, and construction professionals to manage your project from design to completion.

Is your house being taken over by your kids’ toys and gear? A single-story playroom could bring some relief! Common single-story additions are family rooms, sunrooms, playrooms, home offices, bedrooms, and bathrooms.

Sometimes expanding out can’t work because of property constraints. Building a second-story addition can solve that. Most commonly, we see homeowners build a second story to add bedrooms, family lounge space, and
master suite additions.

If your property allows it, building both out and up is a great solution to add space to your home. A two-story addition can provide extra bedrooms, extend existing spaces like the kitchen, or alleviate too-small areas like a laundry room by adding a new room.

A small addition is typically an extension of an existing space. We commonly see this type of addition in kitchens. If you want to remodel
a galley kitchen into a larger, open floor plan, a small addition will add the square footage
you need.

Should I add an addition to my house?

Home additions are a significant investment, but whether it makes sense for you personally is a complicated question. Are you planning to sell our home in the next few years or are you in your forever home? Adding square footage can have a positive effect on your home’s resale value if done properly, but that should not be the only deciding factor. If you plan to stay in your home long-term, any home improvement projects you take on should add value and comfort to your life now and in the future.

There are many variables that will ultimately determine the cost of a home addition. It all depends on factors such as the size of the addition, zoning requirements, the type of space (a kitchen vs. a bedroom), and the type of materials and finishes you select.

The best thing to do is to figure out what you can afford first and have a clear idea of your needs and expectations. In the Hingham, MA area, the cost of an addition can range greatly from anywhere around $150,000 to upwards of $425,000; it all comes down to the scope of work and the materials used.

How much does a home addition cost?

Similar to the cost of an addition, how long it takes to build can vary greatly depending on the scope of work. Your general contractor should provide you with an estimated timeline specific to your project when presenting you with a construction cost estimate.
