We have a small home and would like to open it up to add light and improve the flow the kitchen would be totally redone as well.
Only looking for cost at this time.
It will cost, based on the span of the opening that will define the structural units to be installed, horizontal and vertical, the level between the 2 spaces, rebuilding the demolished area and finishing it up; this might cost between $3,800 to $4,300 ; this is a rough estimation.
Adjustments might be applicable based on the basement structural situation.
To follow up on FB Home Builders, if your basement has not been modified to date, in order to remove a load barring wall the "load" will have to be transferred to other points in the basement. It is best to start with an engineer who also could help estimate price.
this job depend on couple of different factors such as the span of the wall, how to transfer the load from the second floor to the main floor to the basement. This job must see it first and not any contractor would be able to perform such technical job.
This is a very common motivation to do a renovation. Most older homes are compartmentalised with task specific rooms, like Dining Room or Living Room. This is just not the way people live now days. In fact, we do this sort of modernization on almost every project. I would suggest you contact your local Design Builder. He will engage his Interior Designers to draft and plan out the job. Once you've got some more specifics, they will be able to cost out the project more effectively. What you need to focus on now is a budget. If this was a job in Vancouver, I would suggest a budget of $60,000 to $100,000.
Good luck with your project.
