We are presently adding on a room via portable building. How can we attach the building to the house?

  • wow, what a big project! Have you checked with local ordinances because I am sure there must be some regulations about electric, foundation, etc.?

    You'll need a permit to start.

    Hi Misty, not sure where you live, but in hot climates breezeways are a great option. If that's not for you, the addition will need to be level with the existing house and you can either bolt it on or run floor joists, if that's feasible. Good luck.

    You would need to frame out a small breezeway between the house and portable building.
