Bathroom renovation

My master bedroom is on the second floor. I'd like to change 3pc ensuite bathroom to 4pc. The space is quite small to put a tub, so might need to remove the wall and rearrange the other bathroom next to it. I'm also planning to put my laundry washer and dryer beside the washroom. How much would that cost?

Concern: | Budget: $5,000 - $20,000

Small Kitchen Project

I'd like to create an "L" shape counter top. We had a dishwasher put in and we now have an extra cupboard (that matches our existing ones) that I am hoping could be used as the base to help create the shape. Securing it to the floor with an additional counter top/space. The existing countertop is some type of marble material which we do not want to replace. Our hopes are that we can maybe put some type of butcher block (stained to match existing countertop). The L would extend out towards the right and we would lose the cupboard space at the end of the counter as it currently stands, however, we would gain it back with the extra cupboard that gets installed (facing inwards). Alternatively, we could face the cupboards of the "lost" cabinet towards the stairs and actually gain more cupboard space. We are unable to make it longer as there is a staircase and there would be no space.

House extension

Hi there, we are looking at building a small extension on our 1911 house in Oak Bay, BC. We are already aware of the all the zoning requirements and there is no concern there. What we would be looking for is off the back of the house into the back yard. The house is 22 feet wide and we would like the extension to be about 12 feet deep. It's a raise house so there is either a 6.5 foot crawlspace or just a very unfinished basement type structure undernearth. The extension would be used as an additional living room and a bedroom. The contractor would be required to build the structure, roof etc but we would do the drywalling and finishing.

Open kitchen, remove wall and build island.

Edit: Hi all. As I mention below, I'm not looking for a quote here (I don't give near enough information). I'm looking for stories of somewhat related projects and their costs. I'm only interested in gathering a range of potential costs, so I can determine whether this project is going to be done this Summer, or next. Sorry, but I won't be replying for requests for calls or more information. I'd be glad to hear what you've done that you're proud of and what it cost. Thanks! Looking to remove the wall separating our kitchen from living room in our new home. House is 20y old, wall may or may not be load bearing, has no cabinetry or plumbing in the wall. Ideally we'd like to make a big island with some cabinets in it, and room for some stools opposite. We'd be looking at quality over cost, maybe with nice exposed wood beams if it needs to support load, maybe wooden countertops, etc. Not a lot to go on, but I'm mostly looking for the range of costs, including whether it's load bearing or not, so we can think about the timeframe for the reno. I'd like to get it done soon, before we settle in too much, but if the costs will be high, we may have to wait a bit. So, are we looking at around 5k? 10k? 20k?? Not looking for a quote, obviously, but maybe ideas of cost from similar jobs.
