MORE THAN ONE BEDROOM
Adding a room to create a second or third bedroom is a serious remodel. The good news is that a bedroom is the easiest addition to do. No plumbing. By code, a bedroom must have a ceiling height of 8′ (7′ 6″ in some states), a window large enough for a person to get out of and a closet. You must also install wall outlets spaced according to your jurisdiction’s code, usually 8′ apart. A ceiling light is generally not required. Click home remodeling addition for more info.
MORE THAN ONE BATH
Is your single bathroom one that has wasted space, a separate shower and bathtub or is next to something that can be altered? This is a “sell my house myself” idea that could really pay off. Check out bath room remodel and see if you can create a half bath, guest bath or even another full bathroom without increasing your home’s footprint!
TWO CAR GARAGE
Adding a car bay to your existing one car garage is a serious remodel, too. The roof itself can prohibit an easy solution. But there may be several things you can do. Carport additions and tandem parking garages are two. See remodel garage. With this, as with the other remodels, ask yourself “Just how much am I willing to put into this to sell my house myself?”
