I can't begin to imagine the need for 400A.

Sometimes it's because of the house's livable sqf that puts it in the 400A requirement, not because there are enough appliances needing it.

I wouldn't even want to take a guess at the size of that house!

From OP:

The area added to the house is currently calculated as 1,800 on to a 3,200 sq ft house

I think he was referring to the size of house that would require 400A based on sq footage alone.

And I think that may be the case with the OP which is why I posted what I did. No where have I seen the OP mention that he needed due to demand.

Here is a post from 2010 for a 4900 sq foot home requiring 400 AMP service.

1800 + 3200 = 5000 Sq ft
