Most definitely!   However make sure if your doing an addition that you get permits otherwise you'll run into problems down the road when it comes time for appraisals / selling etc...
 Hope this helps!!

Adding a second bedroom will increase the value of your home.  If you are adding on a brand new room to your house increasing your homes total square footage, you will obtain the most value.  If you are converting an existing room into a second bedroom, you will still increase value, but not as much.  Either way, your home will be easier to sell when your ready because you will have another market of buyers interested in your home.

The simple answer is yes.  Adding a second bedroom opens your potential buyer pool to a whole new group of people.  One bedroom homes will only attract single people or couples with no children.  Having a second bedroom, buyers now have room for a child, an office, or just an extra storage space. Any way you look at it, adding a second bedroom should definitely add value to the property.
