What you should keep in mind before doing a Home Addition or Conversion

Every addition or conversion should be in harmony with the rest of your house and neighbourhood. It should be up to code. In many cases, other parts of your home will also need to be updated.

Every municipality is different. The rules and criteria for additions are complex and constantly updated. Getting the permits can be difficult and lengthy. Therefore, it is important that you get professional advice before spending money in the design.
