I have recently completely gutted my home, and I'm adding a 30x24 addition and a 24x24 garage. I have hired the framing out. My question.....is there any reason this should take more than 80 hours of labor? The foundation is complete, all I'm asking is for it to be framed and under roof and fanfolled and windows put in?
My living room has a huge vaulted ceiling. It just feels like wasted space and we need another bedroom. How expensive would it be to use the space for a loft? Would it be the same to extend the second floor out into that space? Have you seen successful home additions like these?
