Thanks for the info,I would like to use the whole floor and open it up to just a living room and kitchen dining area,and make and upstairs master bed and bath ,but I dont know if the house is strong enough to hold a second floor .Do you have any remodel pictures to look at /Thanks

I found 2 for U:
Before & After: Here's a house that added a second floor, although I think house was more adorable as a single story. Cottage 1 Cottage 2

Here's an "after" -they didn't provide the "before": Craftsman Second Story Addition

Houzz does not have plans. You'll have to Google 4 that information. Google "house addition raising roof" or something similar. Here's one article I found 4 U. http://www.countryliving.com/homes/renovation-and-remodeling/raised-roof-construction-project-0208

do you have photos of the house or can you post something similar. Have you thought of finding the love in your house and keeping the floorplan as is. Open spaces are impressive but small spaces are cozy and useful. I have lived in a mansion and found we congregated in the kitchen and used the cozy nooks and the large rooms never got used except for formal parties.
