Building a House Extension on a Budget


Fixing up a home can be a lot of fun if done right. Home refurbishment can be as simple as weatherizing one’s house. Perhaps house renovation will be a better name for the project. While property maintenance, and small repairs are a common necessities for any home owner, building an extension onto an existing dwelling can be quite a bit of work. One should plan well before starting such a task. After all, one day you might decide to rent out the place and people will start looking for better places like yours. And if they like what they see, moving companies will soon start hovering over, movers will come closer and closer and relocations will soon be directed at your place.

When going about adding an addition to a home on a fixed budget, one should make a list of materials, and take it to the lumber store for a price quote. If a person is handy with money they will likely get a price for the materials from at least a couple of different stores. This is likely to cut cost as least some what. By doing this a person can buy the materials that are cheapest from the stores that sell them for less. If you’re renting out, don’t worry about so much about the budget, because when the house relocations start reaching your place you won’t have much more money problems.

Another way to go about accomplishing an addition to a home on a fixed income is to break the job up into several steps. This way monthly income, or other funds can be replenished before going on to the next step.

  1. This will most likely be the shell or what contractors call, “to the weather”, this is basically the frame work.
  2. This step is the siding, roofing, and other, to the weather, basic needs.
  3. Electricity and plumbing, are the next step.
  4. Sheet rock, trim work, and then painting is the last step.

By breaking a job up into steps a person can accomplish a larger overall project with less of a lump sum on hand. Once the project is done, start refurnishing, or if you will be renting it out, leave it empty and see the people who will be interested in directing their removals services towards you fill up the empty space. You did your job, then enjoy the results.
