comment How can I determine if my electrical service can support an additional room?
This article does a good job explaining load calculations. Residential Service Calculations in the National Electrical Code. Calculate the volt-ampere value, then divide by 240 volts, and you'll get the service size required. Next add the additional items you'll be adding, and make sure you're still under 150 amperes.

See the section Summing Up Breaker Ratings Means Nothing in this answer to the question, Do the breaker amp readings sum up to dictate my current panels total / possible amperage?. This answer, to the question How do you plan capacity for electrical circuits? might also be useful.

comment Why is my kitchen so humid?
If it's getting that cold, it's likely that the insulation and heating are inadequate in this room. If the air in the room is not being conditioned, the humidity level can quickly rise. This is especially true in rooms like bathrooms and kitchens, where moisture is commonly added to the air (cooking, bathing, etc.). A kitchen is also a very popular room for humans to hang out in. The problem here, is that humans tend to off-gas humid byproducts. What type of heating do you have? Do you have an exhaust vent over the stove that leads to the outside?
