Another Adding a second story onto a ranch house (w/pics)
I need help with some visualization. I can go into the interior of a home that needs work & visualize, but I just cannot wrap my head around the exterior.
DH & I might be interested in putting an offer on this house (see pics below) but I am not sure if I can visualize putting a second story addition onto this home - will it look weird? I am fairly certain there is attic area in the middle part of the house. It doesn't have vaulted ceilings. There is no basement (it's in FL) & it's a concrete slab foundation. The home is 3,400 square feet & we'd probably want to add another 1,000 square feet.
Another issue - the home is wildly overpriced, especially for all the work it needs (new kitchen, all new flooring, new baths). The asking price is laughable. I'm sure any offer we would make would be offensive, but it needs a_lot_of_work.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
