It is very difficult to change the shape of the house by adding on more rooms on the outside. We have a very big and spacious roof area so we are thinking about getting some rooms made up in the roof. Has anyone had any experience with building up
Building up is a solution to anything looking to increase the room in their household. The first and tedious step is to find out about your local building codes and requirements for building up a house. You'll want to make sure you follow the code to a T to prevent issues and make sure the contractors plan to follow the code to a T. Personally, 90% of all build-ups look horrible due to the top of the house looking different from the bottom. Do your best to keep the build-up looking as authentic to the bottom as possible.
