Our home is a 1 floor 1955 bungalow. We have designs complete and are looking for a general contractor to do a large renovation. It would be pushing out the back of the house by 13 feet and adding a dining/kitchen area 22 ft wide, pantry, adding a mudroom/laundry off an existing bathroom/laundry area plus adding a second floor with a master, second bedroom, ensuite, walk in closet. Also off the dining area we'd put a deck in. We are hoping to remove a wall between 2 of our small bedrooms to create a space for our teenage daughter, as well. Total add on about 1400 square feet. There is a small tv room that will be reconfigured and a single car garage added with a 350 sq ft suite above it. (included in the 1430 total added sq ft) The finishings we are looking at are a moderate price range. Ikea kitchen cabinets, quartz counters, 12 x 24 tiles in kitchen, hardwood on upper floor (seen some at Lowe's we like). We've had asbestos testing done and don't have any. Have report from HazPro. The plans I am attaching we are open to revising if necessary to meet our budget.
I am a young owner of a condo located in a well-run building in Victoria. It is 800 square feet, 1 bed + den, 1 bath. I have been living in it for 8 months and am preparing to rent it out this fall. It has not been updated since the 90s. My goal is to fix the couple of existing issues, and update it enough for it to be easily rented to a high-quality tenant.
- OVERALL: Sand and touch up all baseboards. Replace door trim, interior doors (4) and closet doors (1). Paint all walls and ceiling.
- KITCHEN: Demo everything and install new cabinets, laminate counters and SS appliances. Replace tile floor with vinyl plank flooring. Remove existing pantry. Relocate two electrical outlets.
- BATHROOM: Demo everything. Take out tub surround including the drywall around it (it has been water damaged). Install new drywall, water barrier, one-piece tub surround and faucets. Replace toilet. Replace vanity. Replace vanity light. Pain and touch up trim. Replace tile floor with vinyl plank.
- ENTRY: Replace tile floor with vinyl plank
I am very hands-on, decisive and organized. I have already purchased my appliances, vinyl plank flooring and have ordered my kitchen cabinets. My strata council has already approved of my renovation plan. I am looking for someone who can take over from here and oversee the rest of the project. This would include managing demolition, overseeing the kitchen install, installing the new flooring, taking care of sanding/trim/paint/doors, overseeing plumbing, overseeing electrical, letting tradespeople in/out of the condo, managing the timeline. I am looking for someone trustworthy with experience in condos/stratas. This would be a great part-time project that would allow you to have other projects on the go!
The anticipated reno start date is July 1st, with required completion by the 3rd week of August.
