Always good to ask and to be informed of what can or can't be done, even if it breaks the current idea of a budget. Better to know what the "right way" would be rather than only have a contractor set something up the "wrong way" because of a limited budget.

As in, they'd only sell you on an idea they know you can afford, even though it'd be a disaster over time.

Then there's the case of not over-spending the resale value for the location. While a 'done right' addition might be terrific, it'd be a shame to sink a lot of money into it if there's no chance of recouping the expense on resale. I don't know if that'd be an issue for your location, but it's definitely something to keep in mind for any kind of major improvement.
