The biggest issue you have is removing a load bearing wall.

In order to do this, you will need an engineering certificate (appox. $600) in order to get a permit from the city, which you should do.

It can be done, but must be done right, if not it could be a disaster. The best approach is to install a laminated beam to support the roof joists.

You need to be careful and ensure that the contractor you select can complete this job correctly, and get a permit, it may be a pain, but if you ever decide to sell, the inspection approvals associated with the permit will save you. In addition, if there is a problem, and you don't have a permit your insurance will not cover you.

The rest of the job is minor, Harwood flooring is approx. $2/sq ft The rest is cosmetic.

Choose your contractor carefully!
