25x 25 and 8 x11 addition already added
House is 55 years old fully reno'd but sits on a unfinished basement that only has 6 ft ceilings.
I would like to raise the house 3 feet to get 9 foot ceilings, Pony walls the whole way around, 3 new full length windows to replace the exisiting windows, re locate the furnace and water tank to a utility room, install a 3 pc bathroom (toilet, sink, stand up shower) and a kitchen sink. Install a sump pump, sub floor and 3 small bedrooms with a combined livingroom kitchette.
The home is already R1 zoned for an inlaw suite and sits on a 4,000 + sq. ft. lot. The home already has updated wiring and plumbing but a new drain pipe will have to be installed. Possibility of having to pour concrete to level the floor.
Small finishings are not required (paint, trim, cabinetry, etc)
Our home is a townhouse, 27 years. It is around 600 square feet in the basement - guessing. It has 3 rooms - large rec room - a room in between and then laundry room (laundry room has cement walls and floor and an open ceiling). We would really like to have the rec room just an exercise room - with a rubber flooring - the middle room maybe just an extra bedroom - the laundry room - finished with a shower maybe? New flooring and gyp rock throughout. Would use quality materials - but not expensive.

We are looking to add a second floor to a 50 year old home in Dartmouth. As well we would like to build a 15-20 addition off the back which would not be added to the new second floor, just the existing main floor and basement. Wiring in the whole house will need to be updated as well as a complete kitchen reno. Also we would like to build a 2 car garage the extends outward in the front off the main floor.
We own a 90 yr old home in Dartmouth. We have a space (about 4ft wide x 6ft long x 6ft tall) underneath our main level bathroom that we discovered shortly after purchasing the home. It houses all the plumbing work for that bathroom but is not part of our basement (it's actually on the other side of our foundation wall). We had a lot of problems with pipes freezing this past winter and need someone to get into that space (accessible by a basement sized window or cutting a hole into the wall and going through) to insulate it and make sure it is air tight from the elements. We also need to have a doorway widened from our dining room to our family room, and as much as possible of the wall dividing the kitchen and dining room removed. Ideally, we'd like these jobs completed this summer (2009). Thanks, Jennifer

The house is a back split so the kitchen ceiling slants up and is quite high.
The current kitchen cupboards will already be removed from the walls prior to work beginning.
The work needs to be completed by Aug 16th and preferably needs ot be done in 3-4 days so I am not without a kitchen for more than a week.
The room is approx 11x13 with a small 3x3 ft section in front of the downstairs. The house is approx 42 years old, I am not sure what you want by site conditions but it is a single dwelling home. There is a double glass door (only one door actually opens) on one wall and a 6 ft window on another.

My deck collapsed, taking with it some of the siding. I discovered water damage running along the base of the wall and running below one window where the water bearier seal had broken. It looks like a slow progressive leak from the past few years. There is mould and rotten wood below the window affecting the stuctural integity of the house. I will need the wall and water bearier repaired and the deck removed/rebuilt.
