For many, they choose to add to their home’s square footage by adding a room to the side or back of the house. This is known as the contemporary room addition and the most common method.
Still, there are other methods to consider when adding a room to your home. Other ways of adding room additions to your home include adding a second story, converting an existing room, or building a room over the garage.
These options are great solutions in certain situations, such as having no way to build horizontally on your home.
