what was your cost per sq ft?

I acted as GC, so saved some in admin costs. I was the architect and also did a lot of the finish work. So my costs were not a true reflection of what it might have been if built by a GC. ...my costs were around $225-250/SF.

The footprint is 1,000sf. This is the footprint of the original house, except for the front porch, which we added. The upper floor addition adds an additional 800sf. There is also a full semi-finished basement and a large back deck. It sits on a 5,500sf lot in Northeast Seattle.

That's great! We live in a 750sf one level home (30ft wide) in DC with a huge yard. We want to add on about 1700sf so I'm just trying to get an idea of what options we have. Thanks for getting back to me so fast.

Thanks for the kudos! All in all, the project worked well for us. We sold the property and recouped our investment, made a small profit and became neighborhood heroes for preventing a tear down and overs-scaled replacement. -Jim (j ARCHITECTS)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lindsey M. Roberts added this to Energy-Efficient Windows: Understand the Parts
Reflective coatings. These coatings block solar radiation but also VT and glare. They do reduce SHGC, though, which is a plus. The DOE says that this kind of glazing works better in hot climates, but since it does increase the need for indoor lighting, the energy savings can be minimal. This type of coating is good for special applications.Spectrally selective coatings. These coatings are great because they cut out 40 to 70 percent of the heat but still allow the light through. That means a low U-factor and SHGC but high VT. Spectrally selective coatings can be used to reduce the electric-based cooling needs of new houses in hot climates by more than 40 percent, the DOE says.
Laura Gaskill added this to Stay Free With House Swapping
But I just have a regular house in the suburbs. Who would want to rent that? If you are worried that no one will want to stay in your home, don't be. From what I have learned about the house-swapping community, you would be surprised at how well homes in "normal" towns do. Some folks are traveling on business or may have relatives in your area, so don't discount your house before you even begin. You might be surprised.

7. Upgrade your electrical panel. Take a really good look at your electrical panel. If it’s 100 amperes and every slot is filled, chances are that you're a prime candidate for a panel upgrade. Even if it's 125 or 200 amperes, added rooms and an updated kitchen will often require a panel upgrade. Remember, too, that code governs where panels can be, and that means not in a closet. If you still have antiquated wiring, this may also be the ideal opportunity to run new wiring and ground all those outlets.
13. What is the condition of the roof? Older homes often have a rotten cedar shake or shingle roof. If you're thinking about replacing the roof, remember that the structure may need to be reinforced to accommodate the weight of the new material, or may need to have ventilation added.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to How to Incorporate Your Roofing Into the Landscape
ColorRoofing is available in myriad colors, some safer and easier to work with than others. Hardscape, such as sidewalks and decking, can be chosen to create continuity through color. If you have purchased a home that presents a challenge to you in this respect, consider painting or staining your ground-level hardscape to create a connection. The sidewalk pavers in this photo do their job mimicking the color of the shingles and pulling it to the ground level, creating a homogenous vibe.
