Frequently asked questions
What’s the first step when doing an expansion?
Before going too far down the road with a project like this, it’s important to check how feasible it is. Each municipality has its own regulations and you need to be sure that your project is permitted. Ultimately, the municipal planning office will have to approve the project plans. It’s best to show up in person with your certificate of location and some photos of the property. Learn more about preparing for a home addition project: 9 steps for a successful expansion.
How long does a second storey addition take?
Given the scope of the project, adding a second storey can take a rather long time. You’ll need to start counting the days from the moment you begin putting your ideas together. The plans alone can take, on average, 4 to 6 weeks. Then, it’ll depend on financing the project and getting permits. Afterwards, it’s all about putting everything together and getting the contractors to start working on the project.
What is a rear house addition?
This is a partial extension of the house towards the backyard that typically includes the construction of a solarium or the addition of a family room or dining room. It’s good for several types of housing (bungalows, cottages, single storey homes) and it can be done on piles or on a foundation.
