How much do houses with bonus rooms cost per square foot (approximately)?

Building a house with a bonus room is no more expensive or less expensive than building a house from a plan without a bonus room. Depending on the costs of preparing the lot, the kinds of materials used in construction, local labor costs, transportation, and materials, a house with a bonus room could cost from $70 to $500 per square foot to build. The bonus room itself is not a factor other than adding to the square footage of the house.

But the bonus room is a factor in determining the future value of the house.  A bonus room can be used as a home office, a nursery, a homeschooling room, or family entertainment center. The future value of your house may be increased by more than the cost of including a bonus room in your building plans.

Are there floor plans for houses with a bonus room that include a detached garage?  Is it possible?

Because attached garages are so much more popular than detached garages, there are relatively few floor plans for houses with a bonus room that include plans for a detached garage in the same style. But you can find dozens of them.

Does a house with a bonus room usually come with a garage? 

Most plans for houses with bonus rooms include a garage. However, if you are having to choose between a bonus room and a garage, you can find plans for that, too.

Is a house with a bonus room considered a grand or luxury style of home?  Is the style used for mansions or normally regular-sized homes?

Typically, mansions and luxury homes have lots of rooms but they don’t have “bonus” rooms. Bonus rooms are spaces that can be used for a variety of purposes. The purpose of the bonus room is not set before it is built. Grand, luxury houses have extra rooms for specific purposes.

Is a house with a bonus room ever built as a “small” home?  Can it be built economically?

The nature of small houses is that, well, they are small. A tiny house would not include a bonus room. However, you can find floor plans for houses with bonus rooms that are as small as 600 square feet.

Can houses with bonus rooms be built on an open concept?

Let’s take a moment to review the terminology. An open-concept floor plan involves large spaces without dividing walls. Bonus rooms have walls. That being said, sure, there are floor plans that have most of the living space in an open area and that also have a bonus room. These plans involve more square feet than most other layouts for houses with bonus rooms. But you will always be able to find the combination you want.

What are popular exterior colors for houses with bonus rooms?

Exterior colors for houses with bonus rooms are chosen on the basis of the style of the house, the amount of sun exposure for the lot, weather patterns, and the landscape. There are no set exterior colors for houses built with bonus rooms. You can choose the colors you want.

Can you build a house with a bonus room on a narrow lot? 

You can find plans for houses with bonus rooms in many different styles that can be built on narrow lots. You will have to take the depth of your lot into account when choosing the plan, but that is true no matter whether you want a bonus room or not.

Can a house with a bonus room be built on a wide lot?

It’s usually easier to find plans for a house with a bonus room to be built on a wide lot than it is to find plans for a house with a bonus room to be built on a narrow lot. Just keep in mind that your bonus room doesn’t have to be an “add on.” You can find plans for homes with curb appeal that include a bonus room with all the style the architectural style offers.

Can homes with a bonus room be built on a sloping lot?

A bonus room can be a great way to add square footage to a house built on a sloping lot. Your bonus room will probably not be on the same level as most of your living space, but it can be a great study room, home office, entertainment center, or hideaway.

How many floors or stories does a house with a bonus room usually have?

Houses with bonus rooms can come in any number of stories. It’s not unusual to turn the attic into a bonus room. The more floors, the more opportunities for a bonus room.

Do houses with a bonus room have a basement?

There is nothing about a bonus room that either requires or rules out having a basement. If you live in a place where it’s not possible to have a basement, you may want a bonus room for additional space. But even if you do have a basement you may want a bonus room for a different purpose, such as using your basement for family entertainment and using the bonus room as a home office.

Does this style of house ever come with a bonus room?

Yes, all houses in this style include bonus rooms.

Do X style floor plans come with energy efficient options?

There are things you can do to make your bonus room energy-efficient:

Make sure it is well insulated.

Install a mini-split ductless heating and cooling system. This allows you to control the temperature of the room when it is not occupied without changing the temperature of the rest of the house.
Use landscaping in front of the window of the bonus room to your advantage. Trees keep the room cooler. Vines block winter winds.

Rely on a window unit AC/heater, keeping your bonus room off your central heating and cooling system.  But these are options you will have to pursue on your own. Except for duct work, they will not be included in your plans.

Is a porch a common design feature in houses that have bonus rooms?

There are thousands of plans for houses that have bonus rooms that also have porches.

What types of roof does a house with a bonus room typically have?

The roof style of your house should match its architectural style. Whether or not it has a bonus room is really not a consideration.

Do houses with bonus rooms work well with a rustic interior decor?  Or is it more suited to a contemporary interior?

Rustic interiors work with cabins, log homes, country homes, farmhouses, and other traditional designs.
