The basement is fully finished and I just wanted to know the price to add a kitchen to it.
Only looking for estimates at this time.
Your electrical panel must be taken into consideration. Kitchens can require 6-12 extra circuits to meet code requirements and yes it is considered a working kitchen space so dedicated lines MUST be run.
Only licensed Electrical contractors can install wiring and MUST be used and an ESA permit must be applied for and inspected.
Pricing can run from $2500-$7000 if a new panel and service upgrade is required.
With no details regarding size, finish, etc it is not possible to give you any kind of accurate pricing.
The range with tear out, framing, plumbing, electrical, drywall, flooring cabinetry, etc would be from about 17,000.00 up to 33,000.00 depending on size and finishes.
This would include permits, all of my companies work and my electrical and plumbing sub trades.
Again, no one can give you a price with out all the details of what you are looking for.
Renovations sometimes do seem to be basic or simple in nature, but all renovations are custom, with their own unique set of challenges and client expectations. No one can ball park a price without first meeting with you and hearing about what it is you hope to create. Some highlights that influence pricing include: Electrical changes / upgrades, permits, quality of cabinets and counters, flooring repairs if the concrete needs to be broken to connect drains, possibly a new stack venting needs to be installed, existing drywall may need to be removed and repaired to bring in the new utilities to the space. Does your property zoning even permit you to have a second kitchen in the house?...and so on.
For something like this I truly encourage you seek a licensed, insured and WSIB company as there are a lot of details and codes to respect in a project like this. I would stay away from people that say 'they can do anything'. Only a licensed electrician can complete electrical work in your home, and plumbing has more challenges than some renovators actually understand. Be sure they use a contract. After spending hard earned money you should sleep well at night knowing everything works and is built correctly.
Hope this helps to guide you in the right direction!
Installing a kitchen isn't as easy as installing just cabinets there is electrical, plumbing and venting to consider as well. the job is actually bigger then it seems. The other factor is your city's by-laws in most city's basement kitchens are illegal you should check with your local by law offices to make sure you are allowed to install a basement kitchen or run the risk of having to remove it to meet code.
