Tri Level Home Additions
Tri level or Split level homes have a unique option for adding living space. Add a new level over the area
encompassing the kitchen, dining room & the living room. Entrance to the new level is made by removing the hall
linen closet & installing a small 5-6' set of stairs.
Depending on the size of the split house the area can be used for a new master bedroom with bath or even two
smaller rooms with a bath.
There are more ways to utilize this space than you may think. How about a home office, or playroom?
Another popular addition to a split level is an expansion of the lower level den area. Many times these den rooms
area little too narrow & the addition of even a few feet makes an enormous difference. It also adds
considerably to your house value. A very valuable & more comfortable addition to any split.
My "Split Level" book deals only with the upper addition. The "First Floor Addition" book deals with room additions
or room expansions.
