We are looking to build up our undeveloped attic space (approx. 800 sq ft). Currently it is only rafters with access through a hole in the ceiling. Attic height is approximately 7 ft at peak and we believe slope is 45 degrees.
House was built in 1920 and is currently 2 stories (basement and 1st floor). We would like to add up to 3 bedroom and up to 2 washrooms - depending on cost and what is possible. Roof shingles would need to be replaced in a few years but is currently in acceptable condition.
List of work to be done :
- plans/design for new layout
- permits for work to be complete (if required)
- stairs leading to developed space
- dormers, replace remaining roof shingles
- framing for new rooms/drywall
- quote for finishing washrooms, but may not be included in project (we are considering doing that ourselves)
An attic of a duplex in kits has old/insufficient insulation and some "exposed wires". Access to attic is by a hatch and fold-down steps. Also, the roof may be as old as 1907 and needs to be assessed (from inside).
I'm also curious about:
- better insulating the walls/etc of the townhouse
- developing the attic
Thanks for any indication, or offer of a visit/estimate that you can provide.
The attic is not used as living space, entry is directly above where an old stair case went into the basement, that opening is now closed and above is the entry to attic. we need a standard stair case installed into attic, flooring, drywall, small window or opening skylight'
This space will be used as a third bedroom so electical is needed and according to the last contractor all wiring is ready to go, however we would not know if this is indeed the case, also a sink and tolit could be incorporated dependant on cost, at least a pedastol sink would be great......
older house (1960"s?) very large, corner lot, previous kitchen reno and addition on main floor. basement is more ground level than true basement but with low ceilings (6 and 1/2 ft?). currently basement is one bedroom suite and we would like to make it a three bedroom. kitchen on main was remodeled in late 80's and needs upgrade.
I have an existing carport that was built in the last 50 yrs, post and bean construction on a concrete pad, plate is bolted to the concrete wall.
It seems that hand man seems to have enclosed the carport in a hasty fashion! The roof has been leaking for some time, and the walls are flimsy and need to be replaced as well. There is some wood rot that would need to go!
The garage door is not working properly, and it would need to be replaced.
There will be electrical power available to the garage, but at present there are no fixtures or switches.
I have a roofer who will do a "torch on" roof when the carport/garage has be repaired and restored to proper form.
I am looking for a carpenter to repair and rebuild this structure.

1000 sf condo in a mid-70's concrete building. It is empty, we're just buying it. We're looking to design an open, casual, industrial/loft type of space. We're not interested in high-end bling. We prefer a practical, liveable space.
The location is in the West End of Vancouver. The suite is on the 9th floor.
The house is located in Burnaby. Trying to get a rough estimate on how much it would cost to knock down and build up a new house that we are currently living in.
Looking to build up a house around 3 stories including basement around 2400 sqft.and a two car garage. Not looking for fancy material, maybe a granite counter top, some tile back splash, would like to push for hardwood flooring. 3 bedrooms 2.5 bathrooms for the main and upper floor. 2 bedroom with 2 bathrooms in the basement. currently do not have any prints drawn up.
Looking at roughly how much it cost.
I am seeking an experienced contractor to expand my existing crawl space in my 23 years old home into a legal two bedroom suite allowable by the City of Vancouver. However, the footprint coverage is over by 25 sf, so it needs to go to Board of Variance for approval prior to permit application with plans to be drawn for submitting to City of Vancouver. Also, the foundation may needs to be underpinned to accommodate the conversion. Only written quotation with references and WCB coverage operation will be considered.
