Master Bedroom Addition

A master bedroom and bath addition is a popular remodeling project for personal comfort and enjoyment.

A master en suite may include a king size bed, multiple dressers, walk-in closets, a bath with spa features, a walk-in shower, a free-standing tub and other amenities. If space for a master en suite cannot be attained by making interior changes, many homeowners will opt to build an addition.

Still, no matter how detailed your plan is, remember that things happen. Find out about your contractor’s change-order policy. Once you see your addition come to life, you may change your mind about the colors, fixtures or even the layout of the room. You may find that the contractor didn’t understand your plan and made some decisions that didn’t square with what you’d intended. Or, the addition may run into problems that neither you nor the contractor could have foreseen. Each of these could have enormous effects on the cost of the project, and each can cause friction with your contractor. Minimize the conflicts by spelling out, as clearly as possible on the front end, how each of these contingencies would be handled.
