My home is a bungalow built in 1979 which has been totally renovated. The rear entry is terrible - small and narrow and the stairs to the lower level come directly off this entry. I would like to build an addition and possibly reconfigure the stairs to the lower level. The new entrance would be large enough to function as a proper mudroom with a large closet. I have a rear detached garage so there is room to build out.

I am considering adding an addition to the back of my house to increase the size of the kitchen and eating area. While this project is a few years out I would like to set some goal posts to aim for costwise, any guidance that can be offered would be greatly appreciated. Project is in Calgary, AB. See attached survey snapshot both annotated and not.
The current eating area is a single story gabled section as identified on the image. I would like to extend that out to be flush with the back of the sunroom (~2.13m) for the full width (4.27m, shown in orange). As part of this process I would like to flush up the sunroom to the extended eating area and move the current door (in red) to the back (in yellow). From the drawing you can see that the sunroom roof extends square it is just the doorway that is angled. I would like the addition to have a Crawlspace underneath (or if not cost prohibitive a full depth basement addition) to help keep the room warmer. There is a window well not pictured (drawn with green) that could be opened up to serve as the entrance to the Crawlspace. Also, in blue, I would like to increase the size of the other window well for safety purposes. Two heating/cooling vents currently terminate at the back of the house and would need to be extended back with the addition and some electrical reworks will be required including an exterior light and outlet, and potentially adding switches closer to the new exterior door. We would like the addition to have panoramic half height windows with a double sliding door for access to the deck. Continuation of the gable ceiling would be acceptable, but a terminating slope to 8ft ceiling height would be preferred.
This would be done in conjunction with a kitchen reno which will be mostly completed by myself but there may be opportunities for an expanded scope to assist with plumbing and electrical rough ins as well as approximately 1000 sqft of tiling (including the new addition). Removal of the current deck will be completed by myself, but please comment of cost of excavation for Crawlspace. Rear access is limited to the gap between the house and neighbouring home
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

We have an 8' x 10' (approx.) deck that is supported by large concrete cantalevers that are bolted to the house. We would like to remove the deck and add a small addition onto the cantalevers. This deck leads from the dining room accessed by glass doors. Our house is a 4 level split.
I'm building a detach secondary suite, garage on the main floor and a suite on top.
I have a 22x24 detach garage that needs to be demolished and concrete pad remove.
Need to excavate for new 22x38 footing and dig to tie the swear line to the existing house sewer line and possibly dig a second trench for the water line .
I also need the concrete footing walls and floor poured and ready for construction.
Looking to expand a home basement and the above ground square footage over the expanded basement on rural land just out side Calgary. What are the approximate cost per sq/ft for the basement, including opening up and joining the existing concrete wall to have increased square footage in the basement? Also, what are the approximate cost per sq/ft for the expanded above ground development? The above ground would most likely consist of bedrooms and ensuite.
Also, would be interested in approximate cost to upgrade an existing home towards a EnerGuide 84 or Net Zero ready standard?
Presently the dining area extends approx 8ft from the living area, and opens on to the deck.
We are thinking of extending the house in the back by approximately 8 feet to bring the living area in line with the dining area and reducing the deck size. The length of the extended area is 15 ft giving a total area increase of 120 ft. The area of the bedroom on the first floor and the basement increase by the same amount. One of smaller bedrooms on the first floor would also extend over the dining area (8 x8 area increase). The total increase in sq footage is 120+64 ft2 on the first floor, 120 ft2 on the main floor and 120 ft2 in the basement.
Kitchen cabinets/island would need to be redone after reclaiming the small pantry area along with the flooring and additional windows as required.
House was originally constructed in 1998,
I would like an estimate of the cost for the proposed work.
Based on the approximate initial estimate I would add to or subtact from the scope after relooking at our priorities.
We have an older home (1929) with a smaller kitchen (200 sq ft). We would like to add a small addition (150-200 sqft) to extend kitchen and add a mud room.
We are interested in starting this project (depending on financial feasibility as per quotes) in the 1-2 month timeframe. We would like to work with someone who has experience in older home additions and is willing to provide references and is willing to commit to the timeline above.
We would like a quote on the addition in 3 options:
1-addition without basement
2-addition with basement
3-addition with top and main floor (2 story)
I am available after work (4-on) this week for a consultation. Thanks!
We don't have a bonus room so wanted to created a big living room and replacing the existing living room as a formal dining area. And would like to add a suite for my mother on the main floor as she can't do stairs anymore. Also need to renovate our basement. Looking for contractors with estimates.
We are planning to build an addition to our house in Renfrew to be done this summer. The current house was extensively rebuilt in 1986, however was built on an old foundation from the original house (early 60's?). The house is currently 1750 sq feet on two stories and we are planning a two story addition in the back of the house. The back can be accessed via a back alley. We plan the addition to include a 300 sq foot main floor consisting of a family room and small bathroom and a 300 sq foot second floor consiting of two bedrooms. There will be no basement, only 4 ft frost walls. There is currently a 150 sq foot old addition in the back that we plan to demolish and replace with this new addition. Our plan is to hire one of more contractors to bring the job to lockup (basement, framing, windows, roofing, siding, soffits and fascia.) We are able to do all the other interior and finishing work ourselves.
We would like to discuss cost and timing with contractors as soon as possible. We have professional drawings done.
Thank you, Marc.
We are considering buying a hew home, which fit perfect to our needs except for small kitchen and dining room space. We are considering to buy this property but we need an estimate of cost to extend the kitchen and dining area.
What we want to do it to extend the dining area onto the present deck and add a pantry to the kitchen. This is the minimal scope we consider. Is within our budget, the kitchen can also be extended onto the backyard.
Please send us some rough estimates for the minimum and maximum additions I described.
PS. The house will sell quickly so we would like to have an idea on addition cost asap to be able to make an offer.
I am interested in buying a newly renovated Bungalo in Calgary. The home is amazing, but severly lacking in the size of the master bedroom. I want to extend the current "2nd" upstairs bedroom by approximately 10 feet and convert it to the new master bedroom. The addition would go out onto the current patio in the backyard. I would be looking at aproximately 14 m2 (150 ft) of addition. The rest of the house is quite nice so I would call the quality of room that I am looking for would be a medium/high type of finishing.
This should be a very basic addition. I am guessing a foundation will need to be constructed for the addition. There is plenty of room in my backyard and could go even bigger.
We have a 1238 sft house that was built in 1956. We need addition of 360 sft to create a bedroom and a bathroom and exterior renovation (new stucco). We need quote for the addition (don't need to consider the interior development of the addition, it's a part of a full house interior renovation.) and exterior renovation.
I need to extend our house beyond the existing ground plan. The room doesn't have to have full basement developed underneath, but possibly should have strong enough foundation to expand not only main level but also the 2nd floor level above it.
The purpose is to move house main entrance forward to create new entrance hall and from there allow separate entries into the private part of the house and to the den which would be used for business purposes. The nice-to-have 2nd floor extension would allow us to expand the main bathroom and create walk-in closed in main bedroom.
We have a sunken patio over the garage that is leaking water into the garage. The last year we had a dura-deck surface installed, but it still leaks. Need to rip out the existing deck down to Joists and replace the insulation if needed and rebuild the patio. We are also open to the idea of creating a sun-room there.
We are interested in adding a bedroom and mud room into our current 2 storey house. It was originally built around 1980-85. We have a two storey entry way with a sloped wood ceiling where we would like to have a bedroom located, over this area and over a new mud room. The mud room would be aproximately 6.5out from the house x12.2 feet wide. the bedroom would extend over this area and about 8.5 feet into the house over the existing entryway and closet. The bedroom would have to be built to allow for the existing staircase against one wall.
It would include one window for the bedroom which must meet code for bedrooms and one sealed window to allow light into the mud room. We want this to be a well insulated area, and prefer to match the aluminum exterior currently on the rest of the home if possible. We would require a foundation for the exterior addition, preferably concrete, steps to the new doorway and the roof for the second storey in asphalt shingle. We are amenable to baseboard heating or to extending the current ducting system so long as the addition meets all codes. We do not need the existing front wall on the ground floor moved or altered other than surface changes.
I have a second floor patio that is currently over our playroom, powder room and mudroom/laundry room. It is approximately 12 feet by 30 feet. The house is 1965, but we bought it 2 months ago after a full renovation. We are looking to have this patio made into a fourth bedroom (maybe also extend the bathroom that is beside it currently into a larger one). The exterior of the house is stucco. I know there are a lot of variables here, but what type of ball-park costs can we expect per sq ft for an addition like this? We are not looking at this right now, but depending on cost maybe in the next 12-18 months. Thanks!
