Families tend to begin with smaller homes, but they often find they need more room as they have children. Adding bedrooms might appear to be the perfect solution, but they could run into a plumbing issue when they file for permits to do the work. Many localities now require septic systems to be larger when more bedrooms are added, and that can be a difficult obstacle to overcome if it is no in the contingency budget.
It might seem ridiculous to require addition plumbing even if no new bathroom will be created, but there is a reason behind it. Municipalities must figure that more people can reside in the structure if there are more sleeping spaces, and they have shaped their regulations around that theory. For homeowners adding rooms, it can be a troublesome issue. They will be thankful down the line when their plumbing can handle any extra flow created by those inhabiting the new rooms.
