Add a family room to a existing home with a strict budget.
Adding family rooms and porches to existing homes has always been popular. It is a good way to add value and square footage to your home. These type of additions are economical because they don’t use a conventional foundation. Instead they are built on concrete piers. A typical room addition that’s 16 feet by 16 feet has three footings. One at each outermost corner and one in the middle. The house side of the addition gets attached directly to the home. This room addition was completed with hardwood floors, energy efficient windows and doors and a cozy natural gas fire place.
