When planning a master suite addition, don't just think "bump out" — think "build up," "do over," and "fold in" the space you already have. But paradise doesn't come cheap. A 20-foot-by-20-foot master suite addition to a house with midrange fixtures and finishes has a national median cost of $125,000 according to the "Remodeling Impact Report" from the National Association of REALTORS®, and pays back about 52% of its cost.
House bump outs offer a tantalizing solution to that age-old conflict of space and money: you want more space in your house, but it costs more money than you can afford. When you want multi-room space—bedroom, bathroom, and living room or office, for instance—you build a full-blown addition.
A bathroom addition is a good way to turn a bedroom into a master suite while keeping the rest of a home you love intact. If you'd like to explore your own bathroom addition, call the Mosby office at 314.909.1800 or contact them here.

Above it, the architect and contractor designed and built an addition that accommodates a bedroom and a small portion of a new bath's footprint. The entire house got a curb-appeal boost from new cedar-shingle siding and details such as fascia boards and trim, which help the new space look properly scaled and connected to the older structure.
