It's a basement finishing job. btwn 800-900 square feet. hallway, tv room, bedroom and 3 piece bathroom. New house. I don't have a lot of money so depending on the cost I was also considering doing the dryalling etc myself so how much would it cost for just the sub floor, framing and plumbing (plumbing for bathroom only) because my other option is to do the drywalling and finishing myself.

I am looking to replace my regular kitchen hood with a chimney style hood. This will require plugging current vent hole and making a new vent in brick exterior wall. The house is about 15 years old.

Basement excavation

It would be best to schedule a visit but this is what I can say. This is a 100 year old house and the basement is of earth and stone. One portion is dug out but only a bit over 5 feet, while much of the rest is crawl space. There is also the other end of the house (which connects to this first portion) and that one is about 4 foot high, the idea is to connect them fully and have access to all the duct work and plumming. The total area is about 800 sq. feet of which about 200 is dug to over 5 feet. There are 2 small windows from which the earth and stones could be removed. It would be ideal to have ciment poured since this would help with humidity and potential mice entrance points. Would like to discuss.

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

Interior Repair (Drywall, Insulation, Carpet Underpad and Baseboard) to A Small Section in My Basement

Hi, My name is Ko-Yung Liu the purpose of this e-mail is to describe my need and to obtain a quote to have someone to help repair the interior damage caused by flood in my basement of the house located in Barrhaven. The interior repair involves in putting new insulation, drywall, painting, baseboard, etc to mostly one wall in my basement, as well as putting new carpet underpad and seaming to a small area/section in the basement. Because of the flooding (water coming through the basement window), I would also appreciate putting caulking/insulation around the basement window frame as well. I already have a detailed estimate by component, which was provided by the an Emergency Service company. Obviously I can do the painting as well as buying materials such as carpet pad and baseboard, and do the interior carpet cleaning myself, so I would appreciate if you can assist in looking at the specs in the PDF document and perhaps provide me with a quote (focussing mostly on the more technical aspect of the repair). Ideally the work could start in early to mid September after my current foundation contractor completes their work in late August. Thanks a lot for your help. Please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail and if you feel that a scheduled appointment to visit my house will help facilitate the discussion. Sincerely, Ko-Yung L
