I have a case of a client that has a semi-contemporary 1800 sq.ft 4
bedrm. split level, that she recently bought and want to convert it to
a McMansion for sale.
She wants to add a formal dining and living rm, great stairs, turn the
sun room to a library/office, add a 3 car garage with an office/guest
rm above linked with a bridge to the main structure (currently the
house had barely a carport), new kitchen, relocate the entrance, etc.
Also she wants to add a new floor with 4 more bedrooms.
In synthesis, she wants something about a 3500-4000 sq.ft
Analizing the situation and the financial cost of the construction and
the architect services and time to make the remodeling design time, I
almost bought into the idea of demolishing the existing house and
start all over again.
What do you guys think about it.
I want to hear your opinion.
