Benjamin Franklin once said “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail,” this is also true when it comes to home additions. You probably are a home owner considering to add to your existing home. Ever wondered why planning for an addition is an important and necessary step?


Drawing up home addition plans ahead of time is important for a number of reasons.

  1. It gives you a chance to test out different ideas and to come up with a design that’s going to match your needs and blend in seamlessly with your pre-existing home.
  2. Home addition plans allows you to create and define a clear concrete vision that addition you plan to construct.
  3. This clear and defined vision of the home addition will give you a better idea of how much your home addition project will really cost you. With that knowledge you can decide for certain whether you can afford your plans or not, and if you can afford the addition.
  4. Everything’s got to start somewhere, and a home addition isn’t any different. Planning for an addition is the logical jumping point if you think a home addition is looming somewhere in your future.
