We have a standard ranch and would like to add an upstairs addition (28' X 32') consisting of 4 rooms and a bathroom. Is there a table that we can use to figure what this job would cost.

You can figure about $50.00 per square foot, plus taking off your old roof.

Thank you for the information. Would we figure 50.00 a sq ft if we just wanted to build a weather tight shell? Basically Frame, roofing and siding. We want to do as much of the work ourselves, as possible.

You may have to figure more. The real expense is taking off your existing roof, framing and putting on the new roof. When I said $50.00 a sq ft. I was taking into consideration all the items that do not cost that much. so it balances out to $50.00 a sq ft. The framing and enclosing are very expensive and could go as high as $75 a sq ft. Good Luck
