Has anybody ever seen a split entry that had been expanded in some way
and that it actually looked good ? I live in a fairly new split on a
beautiful country lot, 2+ acres and we really do not want to move just
to get more space but we REALLY need more space.
Here is what we have now;
Here is what I am thinking. If you look at the above plan, one end of
the house has an approximately 15' wide bay design. Could I not just add
another 15' wide bay 2 story extension on the opposite side of the house
? It could be built to the same dimensions as the existing one. I would
also lose the garage door and convert it to living space. I realize the
front door will be offside but with the appropriate landscaping I think
this might be do-able. I just don't want something that will be
unsellable 10 years down the road though.
This expansion would give me about an additional 870 sq feet.
