Ac­cord­ing to the home im­prove­ment re­source HomeAd­vi­sor, adding square footage to a home can cost home­own­ers any­where from $7,000 to $100,000. When adding square footage to a home, home­own­ers may need to knock down an in­te­rior wall or walls, the cost of which can vary widely de­pend­ing on the walls be­ing knocked down. Load-bear­ing walls are needed to sup­port the home, and while such walls can be re­moved, home­own­ers may need to hire struc­tural en­gi­neers at ad­di­tional cost to or­ches­trate such re­movals. In ad­di­tion, home­own­ers can ex­pect to pay more when knock­ing down walls that con­tain ducts or elec­tri­cal wiring. It also can be costly for home­own­ers whose homes are old to knock down walls. HomeAd­vi­sor notes that the wall-re­moval process in old homes that con­tain lead paint or lat­h­and-plas­ter walls is more in­tri­cate and may cost home­own­ers more money.
