When we found out we were having another baby, we realized we needed an extra bedroom. I didn't want to sell the house in favor of a bigger one, so we decided to build an addition instead. After spending weeks completing the plans with the contractors, I watched as our new baby's room started to take shape. The whole process was fascinating to me. I created this site to chronicle the process because I hope that it helps others understand how it works and what they can expect of the planning and construction phases. There were many things that I wish I had known going in, so I've tried to share all of those things with you here.
