I would like to have two small bedrooms and a bathroom on the main floor of my home renovated to make one large bedroom, larger bathroom and allowing an area (foyer of sorts) at the entrance of my home.
I would like sliding glass doors installed in my kitchen and have built in closets and cupboards added to the dining area of the kitchen.
The basement needs to be re-renovated to change the current rec room into two bedrooms (walls will need to be extended as the last contractor, drywalled over both windows. The current bedroom would then be opened up to become the rec room. The bathroom, tub and shower needs to be completed and the laundry room needs to be layed out properly and built in cupboards and shelving added.
I would also like to have a mid size deck added; off the kitchen area where the new sliding doors are to be put in.
We have a 3-level-split home, built in 1990. We would like to take the kitchen/dining room/living room and turn it into a "Great Room". We would need to take out a wall between the kitchen/dining room and dining room/living room. I think it is about 600 square feet total.
We would put in a new kitchen and new flooring. We need to move a few windows around. All would be smaller windows, going into bigger existing holes, and patch some siding outside. Would need to reconfigure plumbing, electrical and gas. We want to do as much of the work ourselves, but need help with the windows, outside, drywall, patching ceilings??? As well as whether or not the walls are load bearing.
Our home is 35 yrs old, a B.C Box, we are on septic and waiting for spring time to hook up to city sewer.
We want to extend the second bedroom about 15 ft, and add an ensuite, the bathroom is the next room over so plumbing will be easilly accessable. We want to re-do the kitchen, keep the concept the same just new cabinets and counters. The light fixtures are all new, as are the faucets.
Our garage was once a carport, now closed in with chip bourd. We want to side our house instead of painting every 5 yrs.
Our roof is a 14 yr old tar and gravel, but if we extend the back bedroom we may aswell redo the whole roof and I want a metal roof.
The site condition are all good, we have a large yard, the sq footage is 1550, the preferred materials would be of course what is required by code. The only other renos done are by myself, light fixtures stair railing, carpets, lino, windows, laminate, toilets, faucets, ect. There is not to much more one can do with a house this old as I believe we would never get our money back. The only reason to do this big a reno is if we decided to stay. I would like a quote if possible, building, plumbing, electrical ect, does not have to be exact. If it is not worth the investment we may purchase something already done.
i am looking for someone that specializes in renovating the older bc box style homes.
it has good bones, but needs updating, in and out. age of home built in 70;s. some updating upstairs but limited.
needs all new hardwood, or higher end laminate or engineered hardwood upstairs, new railings going up stairs, new paint, new windows up and down, new garage doors, new fixtures, tubs , toilets, new flooring downstairs.
outside needs new rock work at front of home lower half, with ceder posts at front entrance way, outside is white stucco, would like that all painted dark taupe, with shutters painted , replace wrap around balcony railing to black, ect.
i hope this gives you an idea, it is a wide home, traditional bc box with balcony on the front that extends to the side of home.
gutters would have be looked at in case they need replacing as well.
depending on costs, wouldnt mind also expanding master to accomodate a larger ensuite with soaker tub.
i have noticed in the sardis park area, many people are having their older style homes renovated, outside and in with stamped concrete driveways, ect, and they look great, looking for someone that does this type of thing, or refer me to that someone would be great. thanks
Please provide a rough online estimate for the following two projects. The attic update is a necessity for us over the next year as we need to move our children up there; the second project is an idea I have that is not a necessity, but is something I might do depending on the cost. Please provide costs separately for these projects.
We need to update our converted attic space. It currently has two large rooms, each roughly 14 x 12.5 feet. Each room is already completely finished with windows, doors, closet space, carpeting, wood paneling on the walls, one light fixture in the middle of each ceiling, and one electrical outlet per room (these are currently on the same breaker as our washer and dryer).
We want to update the following:
1. Electrical in each room with new wiring (it is currently the old knob and tube wiring; we did have a new electrical panel installed when we moved into the home 12 years ago and there are plenty of extra spots for more breakers) so that there are at least three outlets per room.
2. Lighting in each room so that there is task lighting.
3. Heating - there currently is no heat source in either room and my window installation guy told me that the space is currently acting as a cold air return (this makes sense because the bottom of my staircase is always cool and heat does not seem to rise to the upper level).
4. Drywall - we would like the whole space drywalled.
5. New carpet - there is plywood under the current flooring.
6. Insulation? There is insulation behind the paneling - do we need more, I don't know?
I think that is it.
The other project that I am considering:
1. When you walk in our front door, the first thing you see is a closet with the living room to the left and a hallway to the right. Behind the closet is the stairway leading to the attic space. I would like to remove the closet to open up the space. (The closet walls are lathe and plaster; the flooring is recently refinished oak hardwood). The stairs leading to our attic space currently look like a tunnel going up to the great abyss. I would like to open up the walls next to the staircase and put in a railing on each side.
