I am seeking someone with some carpentry skills and baseboard installation experience who can fix up a baseboards project that my flooring company was not able to successfully finish.
The baseboards have been painted and stained, cut, and put in place for the most part. There is about 30 feet of baseboard in the bathroom (stained knotty pine in the vanity area and painted white in the shower area) that should ideally be scribed so that the baseboard fits fairly flush to the tile floor. Right now, three of the baseboards (four to five foot long) in the bathroom have a gap in the middle of around 4/16" to 5/16" between the bottom of the baseboard and the tile floor. Easiest way to fix this would probably be to sand (such as using an angle grinder with coarse 60 grit or so sanding disk) along the scribing line and then put clear caulk under the baseboard to close the remaining gap.
There is also about 8 feet of baseboard along a carpeted living area and maybe 10 to 20 feet of baseboard in an adjoining hallway (near furnace and garage) that could use some repairs and fine-tuning. The installer did not have much experience in doing corners, so some corners will need to be redone and some white "Dap" perhaps used to fill some spaces at the corners and to fill some nail holes. Most spectacularly, there is a transitional corner outside the bathroom where the carpet (in the main living area) is about a half inch higher than the adjoining linseed oil linoleum in the hallway and the installer did not know how to make the corner. My thought was to do something like scribing again and measure the difference in height between the two different surfaces and cut that amount off the bottom of the higher baseboard (on the carpet) so that the tops of the baseboards line up at the corner and the baseboard on the carpet (with some cut off the bottom) will look like it is sunk into the carpet. And then some of the other nearby baseboard in the carpeted area would need to look similar, so the eye does not notice a big difference in height. This is the thing about scribing, that if you scribe one baseboard to make it fit the floor, you may need to scribe the remaining baseboards to make the tops of the baseboards line up.
And there are some baseboards along the steps leading to the garage that could perhaps be fine-tuned or replaced. And, again, clear caulk should go under all the baseboards to try to seal against water. So, not a big job, but one that would require some skill with scribing and cutting baseboards and doing corner pieces. I can supply pictures, since this is a little hard to describe.
I am looking to have the second floor of my home that is currently 2 bedrooms plus an office (approx 700 sq ft) to convert the office into a walk-in closet. Closet organizers have already been purchased from Ikea. Also would like the current closet wall to be removed to incorporate additional space to the current half bathroom. Will require window replacement, install laminate flooring (already purchased) and casing and baseboard.
Our immediate needs include 2 projects in our home in Summerside (Ellersile Road):
1) Basement Wet Bar - Install new cabinets (upper and lower); laminate counter top; re-align existing electrical to accomodate new microwave, mini-fridge and sink; complete plumbing hook up from existing rough-in.
2) Mud Room - Install or build cabinets; replace existing utlity sink; and build upper shelving and bench seat which can accomodate shoes and coats.
Other jobs to be determined based on results, availability and budget.
We've looked at the ready to assemble kits, but they look small and we would like something with enough space and height that my oldest can enjoy it as a tree house while my youngest still uses the swing set. I found a picture online but couldn't connect it to any plans or information. Please send us an estimate if you could build this for our backyard. We do not want the covered slide. We would just like a railing there. Also, swing set doesn't need to be that long. Room for 3 toys is fine.
We have upcoming projects slated for August, 2010, in the Edmonton and Winnipeg areas that necessitate us locating experienced carpenters and their labourers to be reviewed and qualified by our project manager.
REQUIREMENTS for further qualification: 2 carpenters, 2-3 days in total, plus 2 labourers, to assemble and install millwork and crown moulding
Please forward your email or phone, complete with company name, address, and business/cell 's numbers, and include your labour rates for both carpentry and general labour, directly to Elle at KNL Group.
We have a 600 sq.ft condo that needs new baseboards in the kitchen, closet, living room and bathroom. My estimate is about 60 feet of baseboards. I have picked out the baseboards I like from home depot. I just need someone to paint/cut/install. I had laminate flooring installed last year and there is an area along the edge where the underlay is uneven/overlapped so the plank drops when you step on it. I have a few extra planks so I'm hoping that can be fixed too.
We have installed vinyl tile ourselves in the kitchen/entrance but may be interested in having a contractor install the rest in the bathroom depending on the cost.
I have a minor repair of a dresser drawer that needs to be rebuilt. I only have the front cover and the rest of the pieces fell apart. Too many clothes:) lol....What would be the cost of repairing this draw. It is a standard six drawer dresser.
Thank you in advance
I am looking to get some white exterior window trim installed around approximately 8 windows for the upstairs of my bungalow. I do not need anything fancy and imagine that even vinyl could be suffice. I am looking for something around 4" wide with a flat surface (nothing fancy).

I am looking for a finishing contractor that has a high quality of work. Unfortunately the contractor who just completed all the baseboards, window trims, and door trims did a unprofessional job when it comes to joints, smoothing out corners and joints, and the quality of their paint job. I am looking for a contractor that can actually complete this work to a new look and would be available soon. Previous references will be required, as well as I would like to physically see an example of previous work.

We have 5 steps going up to the front of our house that have crumbled away. We are interested in there removal. We are hoping to put wooden ones in its place. Depending on quote we would maybe be interested in you doing both. Our house is about 50 yrs old. There is a whole in the steps cause my husband was trying to figure out if the stairs were tied into the house. Anyways if you could call in the evening to speak with him he could give you more information.
