Home is under 30 years old; 2,500 sq. feet. Two-story with crawl-space Tudor style, plaster & wood trim exterior finish. Replace windows and also consider enlarging the 3 bedroom windows to allow more lights. All Bedrooms face the back of house. Previous renovation was done in 1992/93: kitchen, family room, living & dining room; master bedroom & ensuite. The main bathroom has tube tiles that are cracked, patched with grout when it first appeared during the 1992/93 renovations; bathroom rarely used since 2009; suspect some water leakage into the wall & would like some advice; Replace family-room carpet with hardwood. Considering the following: replacing kitchen countertops; replace laundry room/guest bathroom flooring with better lino.; re-landscaping backyard.

Wall from kitchen to living room to be cut out to allow for more open concept. One wall with french doors to be built. Storage cabinets to be built in along one wall in the playroom outside the den to enclose washer and dryer and provide storage. Wall storage something like this:click here
I have a floor to ceiling fireplace that is clayburn brick and I want to have it covered with 12" x 12" slate. I already have the slate tiles needed for this project.
The fireplace does not have a mantle however I do have the chunk of wood currently in the house.
Could you quote on these 2 projects separetly please?
I need my basement bath fixed up. New shower stall, probably new drywall around it and the studs underneath would need to be checked for water damage. New countertop, sink and toilet.
I also need new countertops in the kitchen and a new backsplash.
The upstairs bath needs new countertops, toilet, and new or refinishing of the tub. I need all new interior doors and casings (6 altogether). A new front door and the window beside it. All new baseboards and possible crown moldings. The entire interior needs to be painted and the deck railings and stairs on the back need repainting and I need new railings on the front stairs.
I would also like my fireplace to be looked at for new stone or tile and a mantel. I don't need granite countertops or anything just a nice neutral laminate and nothing needs to be too fancy, just want it to look nice and new and clean. It is very important to me that the work is done well and correctly (up to code).
Our house is for sale so I don't want to spend too much money so if I am open to suggestions about the items that are really required and which ones aren't as well as other suggestions that may optimize our chances of selling our home. I do have some exterior projects that need to be looked at as well, including some landscaping, fencing and one piece of wood on the side of our house needs to be replaced and painted and we may need gutter cleaning or new gutters. I appreciate that outdoor projects may need to wait for a few weeks though.
I have a home office area that I want renovated ASAP.
The room is 11.5 ' x 18.2 '.
Here are the list of improvements that I am looking to have completed:
1.) Outlet to be raised one foot on wall
2.) 220 outlet to be removed
3.) Wall light to be removed
4.) Two ceiling lights installed - with dimmer switch.
5.) Installation of computer network cabling (approximate 100 ft)
6.) Installation of wiring for above sink light - attached to wall switch.)
1.) Connection of sink to existing plumbing (some pipe replacement may be required.)
1.) Installation of new ceiling boards
2.) Installation of in-wall air conditioner
3.) Painting of room and ceiling
4.) Installation of 2 base cabinets (one to fit a sink.)
5.) Installation of counter top
6.) Installation of 2 cabinets above sink area and crown molding.
7.) Installation of laminate flooring
8.) Installation of baseboards
I am looking to have built a large indoor aviary. I'm hoping for something either portable or that can be taken apart and moved. The look would be similar to the one pictured here:click here
I like the idea of lower side portions having plexiglass, to minimize feathers & seeds etc. being strewn about. I would want a set-in type floor going up a few inches at the sides, perhaps of lino for ease of cleaning. I need to install branches as perches (myself to do), hang water cups & feed dishes, so would like a non-toxic mesh or wire, small gauge (details we'd discuss) to accommodate budgies. No cedar to be used. Non-toxic paint or stain would be necessary of course. Would want to be able to hang a couple coils & swings or the like, from the top. Attention must be paid to have zero hazards by way of toxic materials, rough edges, pokey wire, etc.
Hi there, I recently acquired an apartment in need of a renovation. The kitchen and bathroom specifically along with some drywall repair and trim work.
Kitchen: Old Cabinets need to be removed, and reinstall new cabinetry.
Bathroom: Tub and Shower enclosure needs to be redone. Counters need fixing.
Hallways: Trim needs to be redone.
Master Closet: Drywall Mud and Tape.
I have a counter with cupboards that need to be removed and replaced with an island. Cupboard door replacement on remainder of kitchen. Possible cabinet replacement. A wall that needs to be removed and floor to ceiling cabinets put up. Vinyl plank floors put in on whole upper floor of house. Cottage boards put on ceiling and fireplace refacing.
We are planning on remodelling our kitchen to make it bigger and more usable for the family as well as make it a more open concept with our living room and dining room.
Our master bedroom washroom is extremely small and we would like to make it bigger and usable.
Our washer and dryer section has no dry wall and we would like to make it more friendly and usable.
We would like to reconfigure our large family room on the ground floor to build a bedroom so our twin 14 year-old daughters will no longer have to share a bedroom. The space on the end where we would like the room is 10 feet 10 inches long and 11 feet 3 inches wide. The main problem is that the space has the patio door in it, so the door would have to be exchanged with the window, so that the new bedroom would have a window, and the door would now be placed in the family room leading out to the patio.
This seems to be the only solution, since leaving the door where it is would necessitate putting a hallway beside the new bedroom, which would cut the width to less than eight feet, and we would still have to install a window.
Does this project seem feasible to you? If so, we would appreciate an estimate.
Main floor renovation including complete kitchen, complete bathroom, all flooring, interior wall painting and repairs as required, re-stipling ceilings. Square footage of main floor is approximately 1000 sq ft and includes kitchen/dining area, living room, 1 bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The house is approximately 40 years old, and everything is original.
Preliminary thoughts include laminate flooring throughout, excluding bathroom which would be tile. Bathroom to include installation of venting, insert-type (jetted) tub and shower combination, and vanity replacement. Kitchen to include cabinets, countertops, minor design changes to include repositioning of L-shaped counterspace and permanent dishwasher placement.
I am also potentially interested in finishing my basement. At present it is partially finished (tv type room and storage room), the other half of the basement is completely unfinished except for lighting and electrical. Preliminary basement requirements would be add 2 bedrooms and bath to the unfinished side, as well as finishing the partially finished side, including flooring, paint and re-doing the ceiling. The basement is also approximately 1000 sq feet.
Please call me to arrange a time for site inspection. I look forward to hearing from one of your contractors.
I just bought a house in Abbotsford (built 1980)- I have 2 main projects that I want done before I move in (early July):
1. there is an old wood burning stove in the basement that does not appear up to code and I would rather remove it and use the space for something else. Besides - I dont need the extra cost for insurance on a stove I wont use. There is a gas fireplace in the family room that I will use. How much trouble and cost to have this removed?
2. I want to enlarge the bedroom window on the 2nd storey. It is a standard size window - I would like to make it a picture window. the outside of the building on that wall is stucco.
FYI - I also have a number of other projects that I want done - e.g., change out some doors, change some flooring - but for now I need to find out the cost for removing the stove (so I can finalize my house insurance) and changing the window.
We've just taken possession of our new house in Abbotsford... it's in rough shape. We are looking for a General Contractor to bring together a complete interior reno.

Remove Kitchen walls to create an open space of the Living, Dining & Kitchen
Pipe gas into the kitchen & onto the deck

Other items if budget allows:
