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.
Any and all opinions appreciated !!
