Common Questions about Two Story Modular Home Additions

If you decide to build a modular home but aren’t sure if the home’s existing square footage is enough for your family, there is a simple solution. While we cannot add or modify your home’s existing square footage, we can add a second level to your modular home.

Just like a traditional stick-built home, two-story additions are not uncommon in modular home construction. It’s a way to increase your home square footage without altering your floor plan. You’ll be able to include a master suite addition or spare bedrooms for your growing family.

We realize you probably have questions, which is we want to address all the necessary information surrounding two-story modular home additions.


Common Two Story Modular Home Questions

When building a home, it’s important to accommodate accordingly for your family. That’s why it’s essential to consider all your options when building a modular home.

At Carolina Custom Homes, 100% of our floor plans are customizable, so you can alter your home to suit your needs. The modular construction process allows you to customize and modify your existing home floor plan before we begin building. That means you can specify whether or not your home needs a two-story addition during the design process.

You might be wondering just what goes into the two-story addition design process - and that’s where we’d like to help! Review some of our frequently asked questions below about two-story additions.

  • • Can I add a second level to any home?
    • •  Yes, you can add a second level to any home! We currently have a wide variety of floor plans on display, so depending on your preference, you can add a second level to your home.
  • • What does it cost to have a two-story addition to my modular home?
    • • The modular home customization possibilities are endless, but the more you modify the more the price will change. Because every floor plan is different, the overall cost to add a two-story addition varies for each home.

    • • When meeting with your custom home builder, discuss the cost per square foot of your current home floor plan, and based on the initial cost, ask for a rough estimate for your second story addition.
  • • What can my addition include?
    • • A second story addition can include various rooms, such as:
      • • A Master Bedroom
      • • Bonus Room or Living Space
