we have a basement which we want to add 2 windows and a door (basement entry) . This will involve breaking through concrete, and making sure the structure of the house would be architectually viable. unfortunately when the house was built, the original owner did not put these things. The basement is a traditional basement (ie partly below ground).
My house is fourteen years old. I have an open room in my basement that is only partially finished. It is 45'6 x 12'1 which I believe is approximately 551.76 sq. feet. It is currently incomplete, 85% of the walls have drywall and there are light fixtures in place but that is it. I need a wall framed in with a door to separate the room into two rooms. One will be an office area and the other a family room. There is cement flooring and cement partially up the walls. There are five windows and one sliding patio door at the end. I need the ducting above framed (boxed in) to accommodate drywall. The ceiling and divider wall need to insulated. The dry wall has to be finished, mudded and sanded. There is no dry wall on the ceiling. And a few feet of the one wall needs to be done as well. A second door needs to be hung between these rooms and the other area of the basement. All the windows need to have proper windowsill, beading and cocking done so they are paint ready. I'd like laminate put on the floors with a thick underlay to insulate against the cold. In the office area there is a sink and I'd like it replaced with more cupboards above and below, with a new sink taps and counter top. Also I'd like the proper trim-casing done around the doors and baseboard. A plumber may have to hook up the sink and a light-switch may need to be moved and lights installed. The cupboards at the bottom will need to be cut to accommodate the cement wall. Basically I want the two rooms totally done and ready for paint. I have pictures as well to give some idea to the project. We will do the painting ourselves.
Photos can be emailed.
I may be buying a house in Maple Ridge and need to know the potential for putting in a suite to code. Two of the main concerns are whether the plumbing can accommodate another washer & dishwasher and how to vent a dryer. I need someone who knows building codes for secondary suites and also a knowledge of plumbing. I want to get in to the house Monday or Tuesday March 13 or 14 to assess this. Of course, I would consider using your company for this project if I go ahead with the purchase. Please let me now your availability and fee for this visit. I am thinking it may be for about an hour.
We bought brand new house in maple ridge and wanting to finish our basement. No legal suite. Only required bathroom, bedroom and family rec room. Basement is mostly drywalled already. Does require taping, ceilings and other finished onhdong bathroom etc. Wanting to have it finish by end of august or ealry september. Looking for quote.
19 year old house, new to us. Need to make a self contained suite in the basement. There is no existing kitchen, the bathroom needs to be enlarged, and we are planning on getting rid of the 2 car garage and finishing it for needed square footage. Interior walls will need moving and we will need help coming up with a functional design for downstairs living space. Also need to upgrade hot water tank & furnace. In addition, since we're doing away with the garage, we will need to add on a carport over part of driveway.
Complete finish of a basement. Approx 930 sq ft. One bedroom, bathroom, media room, and rec room. Stair way to basement as well. Perimeter walls are already dry walled. Load bearing wall down there as well that separates rec room from bathroom. Bathroom already has plumbing. Sprinklers already in place. Electrical outlets already in place. Lights are all on one switch though, would like pot lights and switches in each room. Insulation in the ceiling is wanted as well. Carpet for the flooring and stairs. Tile in the bathroom, stand up shower, not a tub. Plans show wet bar and closet in media room, but don't want those. Just a finished basement, not a suite. First print is what it needs, second is the finished product we would like, minus wet bar and media room closet. Hoping on not spending more then $25,000 ish if possible.
Finish drywall that is needed and paint. Framing for one wall of the bathroom area. Need one more cold water line for fridge. Small wet bar against wall. Carpet for floor, do you seal it or raise the floor a bit? Base boards. Need lighting to be put on switches instead of pull strings. Fan for bathroom, their is air exit on side of house already in, just need to run round ducting. Add electrical outlet on new wall for bathroom and move furnace switch inside furnace room. Close in furnace room with door. Close in room with door at bottom of stairs. Door on space below stairs, not to finish in that space. Bathroom. Vanity with sink, bathtub with shower and toilet. Most electrical and insulation and drywall already done.
