Detail of Job .
Convert an existing duplex to a front/back strata converted property. Currently there is a front/back mirrored 2 living dwellings , on one address. There is an old 2002 permit that is outstanding that needs to be completed. The building is in bad condition and needs to be brought up to code. I have had inspectors in here ,on my request and they have sent me paperwork of what is required. My zoning permits this, and I have an 8000 sq foot lot which permits adding floor space. Currently front half is 1050 Sq with an illegal deck, and the back half is 1200 Sq with a kitchen extension/nook that is permitted ,but poorly constructed.
The bsmt has been altered and in poor condition, as well as the structure of the kitchen nook.
As per city instructions ,and conversations ...I need to get architectural drawings of the entire structure ,and get a structural engineer to sign off on all existing , and new permits. The city is being quite co-operative and are allowing me to alter the 2002 permit to suit my needs. I have 2 options in mind :
a) renovate and finish bsmt , join with stairwell to front half and completely renovate front half....with landscaping and exterior house upgrades
b) structurally improve bsmt, take off the roof/ add a level (mirrored) with an outdoor deck on each side with additional living space. Compl renovate front half / landscaping/ exterior upgrades etc With this option I would need fisheries approval as I have aravine on site , however since I would be going vertical on existing structure I don't see a problem
I am leaning towards B) but need it to be economically viable in my neighbourhood.
SO in summary
1) need architectural drawings and a structural engineer and work with thru all permits with city hall for either job
2) goal is to create a "strata converted" front/back half duplexes ..this means fire wall/ sound barrier/ fire code's/ unit separation etc etc
3) structurally repair bsmt and kitchen nook, which was altered with 2002 unfinished permit
4) address all plumbing issues outlined in city requirements (I will send u this copy)
5) completely renovate front half duplex /new floor or not
6) replace 6 windows/ re paint of exterior /and exterior "cosmetic" facelift
7) renovate "back half" -(which is the nice half- bathroom)
8) continue a stairwell to top floor thru existing closets.
9) create a mirrored top floor consisting of a 150 SQ foot deck , and 350 Sq foot living space ,to be determined.
10) interior finishing and new roofing over new top floor
11) Landscaping, I am already in talks with a few people, or might attempt myself with friends ...job is still open however
My budget is unspecified, however option B) must be viable ...at the very least I will be doing option A) 100%

It was fire upstairs. roof has been fixed but doesn't have flooring; drywall for walls and it's 9 feet ceiling; kitchen & bathroom cabinets and counter tops is needed. 1 bathroom is intact (no need for renovation except putting 1 window.) Only master bedroom needs drywall; cabinets and shower glass, (It already had wall tiles for shower.)
On the First floor we have 1 bedroom and a den. We want to make it a legal suite. Existing dry wall needs to come off. Some electrical issue may arise. But all the outlets and vents can be used again., put proper insulation for fire and sound. 1 bedroom is in place with a good insulation, but it's closet needs to be changed or better moved to make bedroom bigger but the den smaller. So one wall of this bedroom needs to be done again. Tiles for bathroom and laundry room is in place, shower needs to be changed to tub. existing 2 year old kitchen cabinet needs to come out and should make a proper ventilation for stove (cabinets could be reused), addition of an island to kitchen cabinet is necessary. Counter tops for kitchen and bath is necessary. ventilation is in place.

We may sell home in two or three years and move to a condo, however, wish to make the following improvements now, both to enjoy renos ourselves and make the home more sale-able. Therefore, we are interested in working with a contactor/renovator who can advise on what renos and quality makes most financial sense if our intent is to market the home in a couple of years.:
- new (mid-quality) reconfigured kitchen;
- raise showerhead and re-tile (or install new tub-surround) around tub in main floor bath;
- replace wood railing w/ glass panels on covered deck(approximately twelve foot length);
- replace lower-level door/frame on back of house with new doors(incl. storm)to let in light;
- possibly replace shower cabinet in lower-level bathroom with walk-in shower;
- close in end wall of open room on lower level to create another bedroom.
-possibly build an open deck (approx. 14 X 14) with two sets of stairs, along back of house to provide easier access to back yard from main floor of house.
The house itself is approximately 1,900sf, 20yrs old. 2-stories above ground.

Kitchen - L-shaped. complete renovation without relocation of appliances and sink position. Prefer standard grade. Around 10x8 ft with a small island 2x4ft. Laminated countertop. Project also includes new 2-bowls sink, faucet installation and wall tiles + removal of old kitchen.
Roofing- Current one is cedar shingles. want to replace with 20 yrs fiberglass shingles. Sloped roof, should be walkable. No leaking is observed. No new gutter is needed, but please remove old shingles. Dont know the roof sq.ft. sorry..
Bathrooms - 1 powder room 7x5ft+ 2 full baths 8x7ft with tub (no shower). All measurements are approxiamate only...new vanity + sink + faucet + toilet + ceramic tiles flooring. No relocation is needed.
