Basically, I just bought a house and I want to insulate the basement completely. What I would like to have done is framing put up followed by styrofoam and pink insulation put in. On completion of that, I will need some electric plugs put in (because there are none on that side of the basement, even though that's where the fuse box is) and then drywalled. I only need this to be done to the walls, I am unsure of the square footage but it is pretty big.

Dining room is 100 square feet of tiles that had water damage along with a small portion of corner wall!. Gyprock would be fine for fix. The living room is stucco that needs a little repair of a hole that (someone) tried to fix along with a small line crack and we would like both painted.
Existing tenant has moved out, needs someone to complete laminate flooring in one bedroom, some painting touch up, and overall cleaning of the unit to get it ready for showing. Backyard requires sod as well.

We are in need of some interior renovations. We are a business and are trying to do this on a tight time frame. We are looking to have carpet replaced with laminate and a couple small walls removed. We are also in need of cabinets for showcasing our products. We are a small store but square footage is not available to me at this time. It is inside work entirely and we are looking to stay fairly cheap but want a nice finished look. Age of house is unknown but its an old "victorian" style like the heritage ones. We are primarily looking to have just the downstairs done with potential to do a small amount of work on the second floor. Previous renovations were preformed by current owner leading to concerns about in wall wiring and stability of some of the small walls..
We are thinking of buying my husbands grandfathers home if we are able too, the house needs a ton of work. It is now a duplex and we are going to make it into one house. There is no firewall (I know there is suppose to be) so we are just going to put an arch way thru the joining wall. The house is pretty run down, we have a plumber to do the 2 bathrooms, so we need flooring through the whole house, a few walls put up and walls fixed that have been neaten up from an electric scooter. We may need electrical we are no sure as of it we only have x amount of money to work with for now so i need to get a general quote to hand to a broker and see if they will fund it or not.

Our main concern is keeping the cost of the renovation under $90, 000 while trying to maintain quality. We'd like work to start May 1 and we'd need to be able to move in July 1 and hope the project would be close to compeletion at that point. We have construction plans/drawings done by an architect-design team we hired.

We have a delicate stippled plaster vaulted ceiling with a very rustic floor-to-ceiling fireplace. We have lived here for over 44 years and are looking to have a smooth ceiling which would also include repairing cracks so that we can then put up a couple of fake beams which we feel would be more in line with the rustic feel to the room. We will be erecting a narrow wall to replace an old bookcase which now stands and works as a divider when entering the front door. We are not sure if this should be done before or after the ceiling refinishing.
My wife and I have bought an old duplex ca. 1920 in Halifax on Creighton and intend to move in and begin renovation this summer.
The job could extend to a complete renovation including an addition of a two floor sunroom and solar heating all done while maintaining the intent to maximize energy efficiency.
There are presently two suites in the house, a small one on the first floor and a two-floor suite upstairs - total living area of about 1500 sq.ft. The place was renovated into two suites about ten years ago and the plumbing (all copper) and electrical are in excellent condition as near as I can tell. The only access to the building may be though the house since there is no side entry.
The project will be divided into phases following engineering and architectural design.
The first phase will be lowering the basement floor but any work in the basement will have to fit in with the overall plans for later work upstairs. This phase will include insulating and providing proper support structure according to code for subsequent work upstairs. There is some water ingress during wet periods. I am considering in floor heating and want to gain some head room as well depending on how far the floor can be lowered. There are no plans to make the basement into living space.
I intend to link up with a contractor who will guide me through the permit process and work with me on the scheduling and labour sharing where practical. This will have to be considered when it is time for cost estimation.
This will not be a rush job - rather it will proceed steadily with interruptions if I am away. Similarly, I will be willing to work within the contractor's schedule.
The contractor will be an experienced green builder and be able to install or arrange for installation of solar heating systems, in-floor heating and air exchangers.
I will not be in the Maritimes until May and not in Halifax full time until July. I plan to get the design and permit work started in May. I don't expect to have designs done and permits complete until October at the earliest. Additionally, we will be living in the building part of the time from July, however we are experienced with live-in renovations.
Interested contractors should respond to the email address above. Commitments on either side won't be made until we meet in May or June. I'd appreciate references and opportunities to view some work of a similar scope carried out by the contractor previously.
While I won't be in the area for several weeks, I could pass on the address of the house to anyone seriously interested and possibly arrange a visit.
As an aside, comments on the wisdom of setting up a project like this are welcome. I've done a lot of home renovation but not on the scale I envisage here.
Project is in Mount Uniacke N.S. Looking to build a 6000 sq. ft. two story house. Slab on grade construction consisting of wood and brick. The footprint is 100' x 60', on a level lot. I need quotes ASAP. Looking for trades people who will be committed to this project. I am looking for quality work and people who will stand behind there work.
We live in Halifax and have a small outbuilding roughly 10' X 15' in our back yard. It is less than 10 yrs. old and sits on a concrete slab. We currently use it for yard and garden storage, but would be interested in converting it to an office for myself. There is currently power to the shed (but it would probably need to be upgraded). The interior is roughed in framing and is sided in vinyl. We're looking to have the walls and floor insulated, as well as lighting, heating, electrical and phone installed.
Removing the house from its foundation and raising it 3-4 feet.
The choices are either to dig down and hope the foundation walls are low enough that we dont have to have a 'box' around the basement wall. Or to lift the house up 3-4 feet. The house is over 100 years old the ceiling in the basement is about 5'10 plus vents etc so there are areas that are 5'4. There is about 1250 sqf of liveable area.
My ex husband started renowing our house a few years ago and would only finish 75-80% of a room.
The siding needs to be replaced on the house and back garage.
The front garage which has a concrete roof needs to be fixed because it leaks a lot.
There is one bathroom that needs to be finished and one bedroom out of 4 is completed.
Master bedroom, living room, chimney, basement need to be done the most.
The furnace needs to be replaced.
Mostly cosmetics I'd say...Flooring and drywalling (I hope).
I need to bring an estimate to my lawyer of how much it will cost to get the house back to normal.
