It's tough making that transition from renter to home owner, so tough that the term "starter home” is often applied to a person's first property purchase. Starter homes a popular choice often being bungalows cost less, which initially works out fine, but as time moves forward owners of these properties eventually out grow there homes leaving them with some tough choices. Most consider upgrading to a larger home, but the reality is that moving is extremely expensive and a home is a difficult thing to leave with so many personal and family memories formed within a houses walls. The other option in this case for a bungalow is a second story expansion of the structure. Second story additions
are typically seen as an extremely expensive and inconvenient process so much so that most don't consider it a viable option. Fortunately technological improvements to home renovations make the expansion of a property far cheaper and faster then most would imagine.
