It is a common perception that custom homes and home additions are, in general, upscale, luxury construction projects, hardly affordable for a middle class family.
The featured project is a perfect example of a home addition on moderate budget. The construction estimate did not cost the homeowner arm and a leg, however, the project was customized to suit the needs of the individual client and had enough custom features like custom kitchen cabinetry or free standing bath tub in master ensuite.
