2nd floor addition- how broke will we be?

7 days ago

Hi all;

We are hopefully closing on a home soon. It’s a cape cod with 2 bed 1 full bath on 2nd floor (and 2 bed 1 full bath on main floor). We would like to add a 2nd story addition but want to get a sense of what im looking at cost wise. Here are my options:

1) go big: square off existing 2nd story roof and extend second story on top of 1st story addition. this would include adding master bedroom and master bath and potentially 1 or 2 more rooms (from squaring out)

2) dont square off but add master bed and bath above 1st story addition

3) same as 2 BUT add space for master bath but dont actually put in the bathroom until a later date.

finally: would this project be a good candidate for modular construction?

thanks in advance for the input!

(we are located on south shore of Long Island in highly desirable location so high ROI should we sell).
