Home additions in Northern Nevada “6 things to consider”

Know your flood zone: Many home lots in the Northern Nevada area lie in flood zones this can affect your ability to do the addition you may be planning. In some cases the size of the addition you can do may be limited, the finish floor level may need to be higher than the existing construction, or certain types of construction may not be allowed, for example you may have to build a new slab foundation next to an existing wood foundation to meet flood zone requirements.
