I have an attached single garage that need to be converted to living space. Somebody started the project a while ago by removing the garage door and starting to frame it in, but then the city came by and stopped the work. This project must be completed with a permit from the Port Coquitlam city.
Here's what I think will have to happen to get the project completed:
1. Apply for a permit at the city (I can work with you on this, but I don't know if I can do it on my own; see below for details)
-I do not expect this to be too much of an issue as we already applied for a permit to do extensive renovations (including the work described here)
-The city was generally in favour of the large scale renovations, but then requested additional information such as details on the footing to enclose the single garage.
-I stopped the project at the time as the scope and cost was getting out of hand. After discussing this with the city, they were quite willing to work with me to significantly reduce the scope.
-It is my understanding that we may be able to use the existing plans and make minor modifications to get the permit
2. In order to frame the wall where the single garage door used to be, the city requires that we dig a foundation/footing with a low wall (and then frame on top of it).
3. Frame and finish the wall above the footing where the single garage door used to be. Also add a large window into this wall. Finish the exterior of the wall with brick/stone panels.
4. On the other side of the house I have a 4'x5' window. Take the window out and replace it with a sliding door of similar size.
5. On the inside of the old garage there is a 2' pony wall. Cut through this wall to create a doorway (and install a new door) from the old garage to the adjacent room.
6. On the outside there is a deck of about 5' x 14'. The wooden deck rails need to be removed, the deck surface need to be redone. The wood facias around the deck (looks like 2x10) need to be replaced and then we need to install new glass deck panels/sides.
The house was built in 1966, I purchased it in 1985 and have been updating on an ongoing basis ever since (when financially possible). There is a 20x20 deck off the back of the house with a carport/garage underneath. A previous owner fashioned the carport into a garage complete with ugly sliding doors. It is a very poor job and I would like to have this made into a proper garage with a garage door and opener. The deck surface will also need work as well as back stairs coming up to the deck. I am also looking to vinyl side the entire house and the attached garage new renovation.
Most of the major work has been done, but I need the following done on my home in Port Coquitlam:
1. Install new tile floor & shower in bathroom. Old tile has been removed. Floor may need to be leveled;
2. Install new ceiling in bedroom (drywall/smooth finish)
3. Various drywall repairs (behind doors, ceiling, one or two dents in walls)
4. Install crown, baseboard and casing in a number of rooms;
5. install pocket door in kitchen (it's framed in, I have kit, just need door and for it to be put together);
6. install double french door to patio (I don't have door yet).
Ideally I'd like to find someone who can do projects - big or small - for me in the future. Quality of work is important.
I"d like to get going on 1-3 above, soon. Rest can be done later, but in the next month or so.

Our home is a rancher, about 1600 sq ft, and is currently torn apart from renovations. We have been doing a bunch of it ourselves, with family members and cheap contractors, but now we just want things done and finished! We have a list that consists of the following: lots of mudding and sanding, finishing the kitchen cabinets, staining the deck and new shed, fixing our hot tub (it leaks), replacing some baseboard heaters, small building projects (building a bookself and shelving inside two closets), and detailing throughout the house (baseboards, etc). We would like one quote for as much as the contractor believes he/she can complete within a resonable amount of time. I enjoy painting so I would like the house to be prepped so that I can finish up with the painting. However, I wouldn't mind a painting quote as well. Thank you!
Hi there, Our home is approx 800 sq feet. It is 3 bedroom 1 bathroom and is only the upper level of the house with front forier with 5 stairs from the front door to the upper level and 7 stairs from the front door down to the laundry room. I would like estimates for the following projects. All measurements are approximate.
1. Paint all walls including the ceiling. total 6 rooms stairwell and fourier area.Ceilings are standard 8ft.
2. Remove old carpet and install laminate floor throughout the master bedroom hallway living and dining area, bathroom, stairs and 2 sm platforms. Also install running boards along all walls. Approx 535 SqFt
3. Install Crown moulding in the bathroom 22 ft
4. Remove and replace Toilet, Tub and Sink and vanity in the Bathroom. The bathtub will be replaced with one of the same size 5ft. However, this one will be deeper than the first. The tub is up against 3 walls however a new skirt will need to be built. The old tile will need to be removed and replaced with large porcelain tiles. Tile area is approx 55 sq ft. The abs pipes will need replacing and the faucet will need to be raised to clear the tub.
The bathroom vanity will need to be removed and replaced with a new unit 6x2x3 ft and one small island vanity 2x2x3 will be added. The countertop will be replaced with marble that has the sink built in. The faucet will be stainless steel two tap with a tall fountain spout.
5. The doors and closets will be replaced with new white ones. Total of 4 doors 30 x 78" and 7 closet doors. 2 smaller linen bi fold doors 22" x 78" & 29" x 78" and 5 larger bifold closet doors 36" x 78".
6. The 2 spare bedrooms will need the old carpet taken up and replaced with new carpets wall to wall. The bedrooms are approx 10 x 8 or 80sq ft each. (trim or baseboards will also need to be replaced in both rooms).
Last but not least...the kitchen.
7. All countertops and cupboards will need to be taken out and replaced. The kitchen layout will remain exactly the same with an additional small island added to the space.
There will be 2 single lower units with 4 vertical drawers in each. 2x1x4'. Double doors under the sink and one corner unit for the bottom. The upper cupboards include 1 tall dbl door, 2 sm dbl doors and 3 tall single cupboard doors. The island has one set of dbl doors and another single short dbl door unit to be installed above the island. There will be 22ft of laminate countertops, a new standard steel double sink and new faucet that will need to be installed The faucet will be a tall stainless steel fountain shape with a detachable sprayer that pulls down.
And I think thats it!
If all estimates can be in as much detail as possible it would be greatly appreciated. With labour and material costs separate of course. If there is a variation in prices for materials its ok the more details the better.

I had the house inspected and was told that the stucture was solid. Even though the slab dropped, approximately an inch, seen around the edge of the walls, a solution would be to have the slab raised or a levelling compound could be used.
I am looking for the best solution and an approximate price that either solution may cost. I would like to put laminate or hardwood floor throughout and tile in the kitchen, laundry room and bathroom.
I am requesting estimates on the following home renos:
Refinishing and staining hardwood floors in the kitchen (11X11), stairs, living room(17X13) and hallway; would like a dark cherrywood stain; current floors are very scratched and scuffed; no shine and dull; just moved in so the house is empty; need services asap
Electrical: Need to upgrade from a 70 amp service to a 200 amp service
New roof and gutters: current roof is 12 years old and rotting; needs new fascia; need to install a vent from the bathroom as the kitchen and bathroom fan are the same vent which i've been told can lead to problems
I will need 2 walls built. 10ft high, one wall 20ft long, and the other 17ft long. Each wall will need a cheap door.
I would also like to have a ceramic tile floor approximately 400sq ft. The main roof is around 30ft high and I would like a drop ceiling installed as well around 400 sq ft.
It is to seperate the warehouse from a training room, so just basic wood frame and dry wall will be fine.
Let me know, thanks,
Well, to lay the ground work, just bought a 13 year old townhouse in PoCo. It is looking a little tired, so will be doing paint, flooring, and a new kitchen. Those have been dealt with already.
Where my problem comes in.There are 2 small walls that I would like to see gone as it would open up the line of site to the kitchen. Since there is the potential for these walls to be structural I will not assume they can come down, nor take the advice of friends who claim they know what they are talking about. The risk is too great.
What I require is someone with the knowledge to determine if the two walls I want to remove are structural (load bearing). The 2 walls in question are in the entrance to the kitchen. One is the 30 inch wall that is beside the fridge, and the other is a small 20 inch piece of wall that juts out from wall across from it.
Now to be honest, if they are going to require re-structuring and re-supporting, then I will leave them as they are (It is a strata, and trying to get structural changes is too much trouble). If hopefully they are little more than pony wall (or someones idea of an esthetic enhancement) then down they go.
So I need to hire someone for a proffessional opinion.
The walls are on the main floor with a wide open 5" 10" crawl space beneath,so everything is wide open.
Exposing the structure on the walls (don't mind dealing wth drywall issues) is no big deal, and since the carpets upstairs will be gone, access from above should possible.
So thats about all I can say at this point.
I live in Port Coquitlam and have just purchased a foreclosure apartment 1100 sq ft 3 bedroom - that needs an overhaul of:
- Kitchen (galley style 8' in length) new cabinets, backsplash, flooring & paint
- Bathroom - new tile, flooring & paint
- Flooring (carpet & hardwood laminate)
- Bedrooms (3) flooring & paint
- Baseboards and miscellaneous painting, and drywall repair etc.
Please see pictures below. Old (original, light green) board is warped and deteriorated. We tried fixing a small portion ourselves and quickly realized why we should call professionals (you can see the results in the picture, it's the dark green wood).
We would like to get someone who can take a look, make recommendations if there's a better replacement product that will last longer and look better, and do the installation.
The trim around the garage door also needs to be replaced.
Thank you for your consideration.

The building was constructed less than 10 years ago. We will be contacting a plumber and an electrician to deal with wiring and plumbing.
