We are looking into adding 528 sq ft up above existing attached 3 1/2 car garage. Currently is ranch style house. Garage measurements are roughly 22*46, with the 3rd car area straight back on the outside wall of garage. The addition we are considering is 24*22 total, master bedroom, 13*16 bath, 13*6 closet. Also adding staircase from in the house to upper level. Currently standard trusses, room to add stick/bonus truss without removing roof. Existing roof 5/12 pitch. Cutting in 2 dormer windows in front of home. Will probably need to go back 12ft to start for adequate head room, with the understanding on the front and back walls will start up with barn like shape. Standard ceiling height 8ft. As far as permits, etc. Our county in Indiana, ranges anywhere from $50-$150, which is certainly not a problem. Licensed contractors are not required; inspection just must pass during process. We are looking for a rough estimate for approx. supplies/labor. In order to stay within our price range we are able to do finish work if needed.
I hope you are able to give us an idea. No sense in paying for plans, etc if our cash flow will not meet the cost.
Thank you for your time.
