Some Things to Consider when Planning Your Addition:
Zoning & Permits:
Based on the current city zoning of your particular lot, there are likely building limits that apply to your property. Zoning restrictions often limit the maximum amount of square footage and a maximum height that you can build. There are also restrictions as to how far your home or addition may be from the street or border of your property. Parking requirements can also figure into the equation to ensure there is ample space for cars on your property.
A good Contractor like Kaya, can help guide you through the complications of zoning, planning and permits. Our years of working with city and county regulators have given us a wealth of information and knowledge regarding local building rules and regulations. We also partner with local planning groups and architects when needed so that the road is clearly paved for any new addition.
Are you adding a bathroom or a kitchen? If so, it may require changes to your plumbing or drainage system and in turn add cost to your overall project.
The slope of your lot. If the slope of your lot has a significant rise, the costs of your new addition could be significantly affected.
Will the addition add value to your home? This is always important to consider this as you make your plans. The Remodeling Report notes the following returns on additions: A two-story addition with a family room downstairs and master suite upstairs (65%); Master-suite-only addition (63%); Bathroom addition (53%); and Sunroom addition (49%). Keep in mind that these are national numbers and will vary from region to region, but you get the general idea.
