Cost to add a family room

On average expect to pay around $13,000 for a typical small family room addition. If you choose a medium, mid-range family room, the project can cost around $15,000. For a large family room addition, expect to spend approximately $28,000.

A family room renovation costs between $1,000 and $10,000 on average. This cost of a family room remodel includes repainting, replacing flooring and investing in new furniture items.

Your complete cost takes into account a number of factors, including the age of your house, the total square footage, the scope of renovation, your zip code, local labor costs and the finishing details - to name (more than) a few.
