Ideas for Second Story Additions

Modern homeowners are using a variety of different remodels to increase the space available in their homes and second story additions are just one great idea. These additions create a large amount of extra space and can add extra value to your home.


Garages create the perfect platforms for one larger or two smaller rooms. The space could be used as a large extra bedroom or as a study to work in. Extra beams and supports will have to be laid across the top of the garage to support any extra weight. This could also be useful if you are thinking of increasing the size of your family. The space could create a perfect small nursery for newly born or young children or, alternatively, could be used as a playroom.

Room Extensions

A common idea for a second story addition is to extend a bedroom by moving a wall and filling out desolate space. This can create space for  extra storage space or even an en suite bathroom.

Building Over Porches

A brand new room can be created by using space above a porch or welcoming area. This area could be big enough to house a small study or library. The modern age could also see additional space being used for home entertainment as second story additions can make great family rooms.
