Looking for Raised ranch extension ideas

Sunny MSeptember 25, 2013
Hi, I am looking for ideas to extend a typical raised ranch home (basement is not walk out). Can someone who's done that recently share layout/picture ideas. We're hoping to add at least one bedroom to the current 3 bedrooms and 1-2 more bathrooms to the current 2. Thanks much for helping!

Sunny, we built an addition on the back of our raised ranch house in NH. We also did not have a walk out, and our lot sloped toward the front of the house. Instead of building straight out the back of the upper level, we followed the roofline on the back, making the house a salt box. The addition floor was the same level as the top of the foundation, and a set of open stairs set two feet back into the kitchen connected the two spaces. Our addition was a living room. The back wall of the house was removed, making the entire space open. We put five skylights in the new roof, which flooded the area with light. We have sold that house, but I'll try to find pictures.

Thank you Fatar. Would much appreciate pics. Our problem with the backyard is that we have a hill sloping down towards the house, not leaving much room, nor does it get much sunlight on the back after about 11am. However, your pics might still give us some ideas to consider. Thanks again!!
