Re: Recommendation Susq, co. contractors
I know no one in that part of the state, but I've been a general contractor doing home remodeling for 25+ years. There are many ways to add living space to what sounds like your cabin. The 2nd story is one option, but since you mentioned retirement, as people age, most tell me they would rather not have steps involved. I've worked on quite a few second floor additions, and have to tell you they can be messy. You will have to get electric, plumbing and heating up there, which always results in some demo to the downstairs. Sometimes though its the best bet, depending on your lot ( some are tight to property lines, or other options)Other options are going out the back / side etc. , or perhaps finishing the basement if there is an existing one.
Your contractor should be able to give you some ideas on which would be the best options to gain the most square footage for what you want
