My wife and I are hoping to buy a 2/1 bungalow in the area and we want to have an addon built for a master suite to make the home a 3/2. The home is squared off in the back (no rear porch), and I have envisioned extending off the back of the house. The existing gabled roof and floor plan seem to suit an expansion nicely, and I have a background in engineering and some architectural drafting, so I'm comfortable with the plan.
First, I am hoping someone has a good recommendation for a general contractor who has experience with bungalows. Second, what kind of range for cost per SF could we expect? For a 450 sf proposed addition I was hoping $30-$45k is about the max we were looking at, but some internet searches have me wondering if this project will fit our budget.
