Front porches – If your house doesn’t have a front porch yet, do yourself a favor and call reputable Chicago porch builders like DAL Builders. Front porches serve as the preliminary area which greets guests as they arrive, and they make more sense if they provide a good place to rest and chill out. Like a few specific home upgrades, though, front porches are subject to strict building regulations.
A second floor – Bungalows are nice on their own, but they can still be made much better. Adding a second floor costs about $155,365 on average, but about 71.8 percent of the money will be paid back on resale. According to John Kmiecik of the National Association of Realtors, any additional living space will significantly add value when it’s time to sell—all the more reason why an extra floor with space for at least two bedrooms and a bath makes good sense.
