As implied by the name, home additions refer to something that you add onto your house. It usually refers to the addition of a room, not a storey. So you might build an extra suite, office, conservatory, or deck off the main house.
Home additions can be a great way to add value to your home and increase your comfort levels while living in it. If you feel that you have outgrown your current residence, don’t feel that you have to move right away. A room or two added to your home might be exactly what you need to expand. The extra space can make a big difference.
Moreover, a home addition is a whole lot easier to finance than a new house, and it could be a more appropriate choice.

Costs for a ground-level house extension in Australia start from around $70,000. When house prices are high, as they are in many parts of Australia at the moment, adding a room or extending your living area on the ground floor can be a more affordable way to create space than moving.
A second storey extension will normally cost around $1,800 to $15,000 per square metre depending on the “degree of difficulty” of the work required. Obviously, this figure can vary quite a lot depending on the nature of the project.
There’s no surefire way to determine whether adding a second story or an addition is the less-expensive way to expand your living space without considering the details of the property. For some homeowners, the addition is less expensive, but for others, adding the second story is a better alternative.
The primary disadvantage is that you eat into your outside space. This is fine if you have a big garden, otherwise, it’s a tradeoff. The other two disadvantages are that you will be living in a construction zone for a while, and you might not make your investment back. However, most additions will add value to the house and are good bets, all things considered.
If you want to increase the value of your home and are ready to go all-in on a time-consuming but rewarding investment, then you should opt for a home addition. Not only does it give your home value, luxury, and convenience, but it also gives you a chance to add a bit of your creativity.
