Add approximately 450 sq ft on each of 2 levels:
o Extend the lower and upper levels of the house east to the maximum limit allowed by the City of Edmonton zoning bylaws, approximately 14-15 ft from the existing east wall of the main structure, eg 2-3 feet past the existing east wall of the carport / garage
o Do not extend the basement
o Leave space at the front of the ground level extension for a garage / storage area approximately 15' long at the level of the current carport pad

Prepare conceptual drawings suitable for zoning and building permit approvals and construction cost estimates for construction companies.
I am looking at doing some work on my house. We are unsure of the best way to go about doing what we want done. We forsure have 2 rooms we want redone and then siding and windows. A possible addition onto the front of the house. With a sunk in living room, and bedroom. My current house is 998 square feet. And I just want a main level added on, hopefully with out having to rebuild the roof of the house.
Do you deal with all permits? and will you work if I supply product ( I work for a lumber yard and can get lumber, flooring and siding)
Was also curious what an addition starts at. I know its not cut and dry on what this type of reno costs but was hoping on a rough estimate.
If you could get back to me that would be great!
Have a good day
We have been renovating a house and now want to build a small extension onto the side of the house. The room will be approximately 10x12 ft. It is on the main floor (ground level). We need it done fairly soon because we are almost ready for our eletrical inspection. The delay in posting this was because we thought we would do the extension ourselves (just like we have already done with the rest of the house) but now we realize that we need someone that specializes in that type of work.
We will also be hiring for complete drywall, tapeing etc. The house is almost at that point.
Thank you (in advance) for responding to my email promptly.
1950's mobile home with addition. Needs leveling, shingle or roof repair, siding and easetrough repair. Septic may need fixing or replacement. Inside needs new flooring, some drywall repair, complete new kitchen, complete new bathroom, ceiling repair (ceiling is drooping). Would ideally be done for $25,000. Needing one company to be able to come in and help us with it all.
Add on laundry room approximately 10 x 5 feet, is separating from the main house. It appears that the add on is sinking and pulling away from the house. There are major cracks in the corners of the laundry room starting at the ceiling to about half way down the wall. Can only be seen from the inside. The house has a suited basement but there is no basement under the add on portion. We believe we need to have that room lifted and properly supported to make it structurally sound.
We are interested in adding a mudroom at our back door where we have our deck. Entrance to back door has a landing and that is as large as we want it (5x5, more or less). We have a bathroom window where the mudroom would be as well that may or may not need to be taken out depending on design of the mudroom.
I am wondering how much it would cost to add a second story to our bungalow. Our home is currently 1000 sq/ft and a simple rectangle in shape. I plan on doing the finishing work myself and would need a builder to draft plans, remove existing roof, update electrical and plumbing as well as building the second story itself. I would do the drywalling, the painting, the floors, the bathroom once all was plumbed in. My husband wants a studio and we need another bedroom so we are envisioning the upstairs as a master suite on one side and a large studio/office space on the other. We are considering a second story as we love our neighbourhood and can't find another home that suits our needs. Estimated cost of such a project???
I am building a new country/residential home approx 7 minutes SE of Edmonton. I am looking for multiple quotes/bids from ALL trades/jobs on this new home (Cribbing/foundation, Fiber insulation, Post & Beam prefabricated construction, electrician, plumber, A/C, water softener, kitchen cabinets, hardwood & tile flooring, Granite counter tops, painters, stucco, ETC.) I plan on starting the construction within 1 month.
I have provided a 3D photo of the home. Please let me know if you are interested and what you require in order to provide with an accurate quote.
Please SERIOUS INTEREST & RESPONSES ONLY
Thank you in advance

We are looking for someone to manage the conversion of our attached, oversized two-car garage into a secondary suite that will qualify for the Cornerstones Secondary Suites Grant. They must be able to arrange or provide all necessary aspects of the project from architectural design and investigating which parts of the existing structure can be used, to plumbing, electrical, permits etc. Fully itemised estimates are required to qualify for this grant program and thus will be expected early in the process. Financing has already been secured and we would like work to begin as soon as possible.
Preference will be given to those who have familiarised themselves with the Cornerstone Program.
Budget is ~ 30-60K; timely, professional completion of this project will lead to further contracts.

Old house built in 1954 needs pipe work for bathroom. Sink, shower, and toilet + washer and emergency drain.
Floor would need to be cut for pipe work; it's an old main stack made of cast iron. Total bathroom installation, frame, flooring, roof and lighting. I have the sink, shower and toilet.
Thank you for your time.
I have a roughed in bathroom in the basement that I want completed. Toilet, sink, and tub/shower are roughed in. Waterlines have been run but need to be re positioned and attached to manifold. I will supply the tub, vanity and toilet and fixtures just need someone to install correctly and do all the hookups. There is a vent roughed in for the bath fan just need ducting work to finish.
Need laundry room moved to ground level from basement. All plumbing at new location is accessible through the wall and underneath via crawl space (house is a four level split). Main water manifold is just the other side of wall where I wish to move the laundry room as is the main toilet stack. In new laundry need to install bath fan (would need to cut through exterior wall), water lines (in a box in wall preferred), washer drain, dryer venting to exterior. Considering additional (please quote as additional and separate from main quote) dog wash station, thinking of using a shower base so plumbing would require floor drain and hot cold water. I would supply the base and faucet etc. Moving of the laundry room would also include the removal of existing plumbing. If possible as part of this quote I would like the dryer and washer electrical relocated as part of this job, if not I can get a separate quote from an electrician.
I would like shut offs installed as part of any supply lines installed as part of this project (bathroom and laundry room).
Additionally I require the following: replace outside house bib as the auto drain feature is not functioning, install water shut offs for kitchen sink and existing bathroom sink. Install dedicated supply line for ice maker and furnace mounted humidifier (currently taped into main at manifold).
