We are considering a renovation to the basement of our house to covert it into a suite. The basement is approximately 850 sqft. The work would include:
Renovation of the existing bathroom
Addition of a kitchen
Addition of 2 windows (possibly window wells)
Upgrade of electrical panel from 100A to 200A
Addition of a laundry room
We are also considering converting the carport into living space (likely into a 1 bedroom and 1 living room) for the sake of the suite, and keeping part of the basement for our own use as a living room. We are open to different heating options (electric baseboard heaters, nufloor, etc.)
The level of finish will need to be nice, but no need to be top of the line, but the person who will be occupying this space will own the space, and will not be a renter. Think: "after" picture on Income Property level of finish.
800 sq ft 1 floor townhouse - built in 1952
Concerns: may have some water leakage behind tub, mould?
Bathroom - small-ish - creativity is goal
Approx 9ft square, except reverse L shaped
Can I put in a built-in cabinet?
Replace vanity (with what, depends on if we can do a built-in cabinet)
Replace tub - possibly with free standing tub + shower (next to it, or with surround shower curtain)
Replace toilet with smaller lower profile, low flush
Remove existing tile floor, and replace with either polished concrete to match kitchen (DIY project already completed) OR cork/bamboo flooring to be replaced throughout. Open to other flooring ideas, but small one floor townhouse so too many types of flooring won't be ideal
New lighting fixture
Incorporate fan into lighting fixture (currently separate) - no windows, improve ventilation
Maximize space! (pocket door?)
Budget - $3-5000
Remove backsplash tiles and replace under cabinets
Complete drywalling/painting above stove
Install new hood fan
Refinish butcher block counter top
Look at sink piping, taps (not best previous owner reno)
Matching cabinet doors for 2 new upper cabinets

Door hanging - 4 interior doors (3 are replacing door only, one is replacing door and frame) doors are already purchased and need prepping)
Deck - after too many layers of paint, have powerwashed it and see it needs new plywood and sealing and paint (approx 7' x 25,
Cedar deck - need to replace one piece of 2 x 4 and add one wood railing section (approx 5 feet)
Concrete repair - around stone stairs and small concrete pathway that has cracks
Driveway patching - 4 spots approx 50 sq feet total
We have a large attic space that may be useable due to it's high roof clearance and large size. It appears that the attic is easily accessible without losing a room or part of a room.
We would like some estimates to re-do the roof trusses accordingly and build the floor walls with a small 2 pc bathroom and window.
We're looking to possibly building a small 500-600 sq. ft. laneway house on our property. At this stage we are just inquiring cost including all permits, hookups, sewer, etc. Is anyone on this site able to take this on or is it something for an actual coach/laneway house building company?
We have just purchased a home in North Vancouver, BC. We are interested in renovating a 2 level, 2400 sq ft home from top to bottom.
We are wanting to create a two bedroom basement suite on the lower level. It currently has a two piece bathroom and we would need to convert it to a full bathroom. The suite would ideally have its own laundry.
For the main level, we are wanting to go with an open concept which will require the removal of a closet and pantry (might be a supporting wall). We would like to renovate the current three piece bathroom as well as add an additional three piece bathroom.
The kitchen including the kitchen floor would be completely redone. The main level has hardwood floors which would need to be refinished. The bedrooms all need flooring. All the windows in the house would need to be upgraded. The house needs a new roof and gutters.
We don't get possession of the house until February 2012.
We live in Norgate and would like to convert our garage which is attached to our living room into a dining room. It would require electrical, raising the roof, flooring, 2 sets of windows and insulation. We would also need to knock down the wall between our living room and garage to make one open space.

Dinning Room Ceiling
Adjourning wall to the Bathroom will need some form of repair
11.5 Ft By 8.2 Ft
Entire Ceiling needs replacement
Painting with Stoco Paint
Fixing the Light fixtures back on
Lower floor Bathroom

We would like to remove the back wall of one of the mainfloor closets in our 25-yr-old townhouse; this would open up a currently-unfinished area under our staircase that could be used for storage. The project would involve removing the closet wall and finishing the storage area (insulation, drywall, flooring, etc.). Area of unfinished space is approximately 40 square feet. We would also like to replace the carpet on our main floor (approximately 700 sq feet) with either hardwood or laminate. We are looking for someone to take care of both jobs. Thanks.
We would like to put in finished studs in a wall that separates our living room and stairwell. We would also like a wooden railing put in for the stairs. We currently have 2x4 posts that would also need to be "warpped" to look like finished posts.
Let me know if you are available to do the work.

This one is a bit hard to describe. Previous owners had resolved a slope issue where the front corner of the house had sunk about 5 inches. So the slope was fixed, however, the floor of the house still slopes (impacts 1 room). We need a solution to level the sloped floor. Beneath the room impacted is a carport. Our house is 2 story, with first floor backing into below grade. Also, the carport is cracked/uneven so will need leveling/re-surfacing.
Will need a site visit to understand work required.
We are looking at putting our home on the market and are in need of some assistance with ‘deferred maintenance’ as our Real Estate Agent so nicely put it.
A full interior and exterior paint. Interior also needs some wall repairs (no drywall repairs (I think!) just filling of some holes). There are base boards in our living room/family room. We would like all of the doors painted also (closet and bedroom). We will be replacing the carpet that is down in the bedrooms which should help with prep.
Bedrooms x 3
Bathrooms x 2
We have a small carpentry job in our hall area. At one time we put in stairs down to our basement. We have since taken out the stairs and replaced the floor however, we still need the old closet dry walled off and our closet doors put back in. I can email photos which will make sense on this one.
We need laminate flooring installed on two sets of three stairs. We may also need a hallway 8ft x 3ft done – depending on how much laminate we have/if we can find more)
We would like “sticky laminate” (peel and stick) installed in our foyer, laundry room and 1 bathroom.
We need someone to come in and assist with some small jobs – installing new light fixtures, smoke detectors and curtain rods.
Please let us know what you can offer. We are open to having people come in and get stuff done quickly (all at once) or, having someone commit to a slower project – maybe someone looking for weekend/evening work over the new few months.
Thanks for your time!
