I would like to expand my kitchen by turning an existing 6' window into a cantilevered bay window, incorporating seating and storage benches. The floor joists have the correct orientation to allow this.
Any advice on which contractor is best qualified for this type of job?
I will be doing this as a larger kitchen renovation and whole-house window replacement project.
Only looking for advice at this time.
You will be best served to obtain the services of either a General Contractor or Construction Project Manager. The described work will require at least:
Demolition, framing, electrical, plumbing, insulation and vapour barrier, drywall, flooring, cabinetry, windows, roofing, exterior veneer, etc.
No one trade is legally able to do all of that work and so you are looking for someone to take over the project and manage the multiple trades, documentation, insurances, licensing, notifications, permits and inspections.
You will also need stamped drawings and permits (building and electrical) for a project like that. These are the things the General Contractor or Construction Project Manager has expertise in.
Best of luck

My best advice is for you to call your local design builder. He will be able to help you with a "Master Plan". It's very easy to get tunnel vision when considering a renovation. A design builder will help you to consider the "Big Picture". This will save you tons of money and allow you to budget for the whole job.
Good luck with your project.
