The design and function of a second-story addition will have ripple effect on the rest of your home – everything from finishes to mechanical work to structural work. A good design will make the second story look like it was always intended, so take the necessary time to make sure the addition does a favor for your curb appeal and your home’s functionality. A second story with occupied rooms will weigh much more than your old roof system, so engineers will need to calculate how much weight the main-floor walls and foundation will carry and how to hold that weight up. Second stories require structural support that includes adding plywood and steel connections at main-level walls and down into the foundation to meet code requirements. This is particularly important in areas with seismic risk and with older homes.


Second story addition are also technically complex projects, so it’s a good idea to have an idea about the process and typical costs, before jumping in feet first to get plans and estimates. Second stories add significant weight to the original house; something its skeleton was not designed to hold up. Detailed plans must be developed with and engineer’s input along the way.
