What does it cost to demo and build up from scratch?

We live in our 1975 built home- made some minor improvements- have a huge yard 13k sq feet infested with gofers- our home creeks more than we like it to.. I often wonder about the structural soundness of an old home and adding anything to it.. We would like more room to entertain and someone suggested adding a few hindered sq feet... I honestly would like some major changes instead to make my floor plan more open.. But because it is a two story I am aware of the costs and regulations for our own safety. What do you all recommend?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo

I would recommend that you pay for some professional advice on this. Have the gophers undermined your foundation? Digging animals can do a lot of damage. We once owned a house with an old barn and the concrete floor of the barn had collapsed because groundhogs had been burrowing under it for many years. Currently we have a chipmunk problem under our garage. I think you would benefit from some guidance.
