Hello celly4309,


Thanks for your question and welcome to the community!


Without knowing the dimensions or several very crucial factors like plumbing and electrical requirements, we unfortunately cannot get a list for you here. There are way too many variables to discuss that you'd need to go over with yourself, be it picking out windows to deciding how the foundation will be.


The best thing you can do is to write a basic list of what you believe you'll need to construct everything. Take or write down measurements that you'll think you will need. Approximations are better if you go over 10 percent for waste and extras, so you'll have enough for the job.


We do carry an online project calculator for some things, like flooring and insulation, for example. Click on the image below for more information.

Then, come into your local Home Depot and go to the Pro Desk. Once you are there, our associates there can compile a list of materials and quote you a price for everything. Knowing square footage on walls, ceiling, and the floor is make sure you know this before coming in.


Once you do this, you can then get a list of what you need for the addition.
