Consider building a second story with energy efficiency in mind, which may help you save some cash in the form of tax credits and reduced utility bills down the line. New windows can help you create a brighter space and keep out cold drafts and humid weather, reducing the need for heating and AC 24/7. Adding a second story addition can also be an excellent opportunity to increase the height of your ceilings for a more spacious-feeling downstairs. We’ve done a handful of second story additions in the Woodlands and Cypress area’s.

What do 2nd story projects like these really cost?  Every house is different but here are some typical ranges:  For a full 2nd story on a 2000 square foot house, the cost can range between $120,000 and $200,000.  For a partial 2nd story in the 500-700 square foot range, expect to pay $60,000 to $120,000, especially if there is a new bathroom upstairs.  People are often surprised to find out that a new two-story, 20’ x 22’ garage (with living space on the 2nd floor) project, can cost between $90,000 and $150,000.

How do I find a remodeler who has experience?  You need a contractor with lots of experience knocking out structural walls and tying into existing electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems.  A skilled remodeler can even help you cut some costs out of the project if need be.

We wanted to take the time to give you some feedback on our experience with Ryan as our Project Manager. We really couldn’t have asked for more. From the start of the project he made himself readily available to us. I could reach him easily and he always responded quickly to my messages. He was thorough and always willing to find a solution to issues as they arose. He offered from the beginning to meet as often as we wanted. Although, our schedules didn’t allow for meeting often, we appreciated that and never felt uncomfortable in asking questions or requesting more information during the building process. I appreciated his calm demeanor so much. It served as reassurance that all would get done and to our satisfaction. He seems to have a great relationship with his subs which we have come to understand is quite important in your business. As business owners we know how important but difficult it is to find good people. In Ryan, you’ve found an exceptional PM.

We hird BRC construction to do a garage apartment addition in Bunker Hill village. The process was so easy and turn key. They have a very trustworthy and honest staff that communicates well especially since we were at work during most of the construction process. I have recommended them to all my friends and family.
