Same as room addition, but more in-depth.
If you find that your home is just too small to address all of your needs, consider building an addition, as an alternative to packing up and moving to a bigger home..
You can expand your kitchen or living room on the ground floor, add another bedroom on the second floor, or expand a master bedroom and add an en suite washroom.
Possibly you want to add a laundry space on the second floor (where all of the bedrooms area). The need for more space always exists. A multiple story addition allows much design flexibility to accommodate all manner of space needs.
Also, if you would like to earn extra income, by building a rental unit (also known as a secondary dwelling), a multiple story addition allows you the opportunity to rearrange your home, by possibly designing a separate one or two bedroom unit, complete with its own washroom and kitchen and living spaces.
