Monica, I'm not familiar with what set of building codes your area is using, but I can almost assure you that being an attached addition to your existing home, this area will require some form of foundation; at a minimum probably what would be called a "monolithic pour," where foundation, footing and floor slab is poured at one time. Even if it were a separate structure, many building codes require foundations/footings for any structure over 400 sq. ft; you're proposing double this space.

Are you planning on building this addition yourselves, or hiring a contractor?
