The most popular addition is adding a master suite upstairs (master bedroom, ensuite and walk-in-robe).
A second storey addition is an extensive renovation that does require removing all or part of the roof. Your builder will be able to advise you on whether it is possible to live-in or if you should vacate your home during the major parts of construction.
