Build second floor on bungalow
Wanted some advice. we've outgrown our bungalow and was thinking about moving. Seeing how crazy the RE market is, building up seems like an interesting idea. But not sure where to start, which builder to trust, how much this would costs etc? Can you guys shed some light?
Current situation 1000 sq raised bungalow sitting on 60x140 lot.
Looking to build second floor approx 650-700 sq ft. 3 bedrooms and 2 washrooms and laundry room. - nothing to big.
1. Is building up on a 1950 bungalow a good idea, bad, crazy?
2. Any recommendation on builders who do this kind of work?
3. What am I looking at based on cost? i dont even know where to start? is it half a million? few hundred thousand?
4. any other watchouts?
