I would like to make some additional space in my two-storied home in Port Coquitlam, BC. I would like to add a downstairs bedroom where currently the deck is. My house is 35 years old, in good condition (other than the deck itself). What I want is a bedroom with a small closet and a basic bathroom with shower (no bathtub), toilet and sink. I have no measurement in mind but the bedroom should fit a queen bed with three sides open (bed not pushed against the wall on one of the sides). Since I have the living room downstairs no need for huge space for extra sittings etc. but one or two windows and a door to go to the backyard is required.
At this time, I am only looking for a rough idea of how much I should expect to spend. Don't need anything on the upper floor.
To add a bedroom downstairs with a bathroom has a lot of details needed to get a ball park number. Such as, will there need to be structural foundation poured for bedroom walls after deck has been removed. Is the plumbing located in a near by wall or will it have to be dug out to connect to main line. These two will be your major things to judge the scope of the work on as well as permits and electrical. It's hard to give a rough idea from a contractors perspective due to so many unknowns. Sometimes getting a contractor out to take a look is the best way of getting a rough assessment of what you're looking at.
