Hi, We have a 16-18 year old home, 650-1000 sqft basement in bowmanville. It was started by a previous owner with metal studs and wired. We have insulated the walls and thrown some old carpet on the floor to use the space as a storage/playarea/computer room. Please see pictures "do not mind the mess". Now we are looking to finish it off. The electrical is basically done except we would want to have some more outlets, a 3 way switch for the stairs, a separate wired light switch for the laundry area and remove the tube lighting with pot lights. We would also want the electical tested/checked out to be safe. We repaired 2 cracks in the foundation, one where bathroom is going, which needs to be reframed and the laundry room needs to be studded, insulation and the basement needs vapour barrier to all exterior walls, drywall the "walls and ceilng", frame install a 2pc bathroom and frame and drywall the exterior wall in the laundry room which currently has no framing. What we would like as an end result is to have one large playroom/living area approx 17x22 374 sqrt feet, 2pc bathroom/storage area 10x6 60sqrft and the laundry room 10x7 70sqrtt.
My home is quite old and my father, who was caring for it up until very recently, wasn't able to afford many of the various upgrades/improvements that it desperately requires.
The biggest issues that need immediate addressing are mold in the basement, a window that needs to be enlarged in the basement, cosmetic upgrades after the mold is removed, installation of central air/heating throughout the house (which is a bungalo) and new flooring/trim throughout the entire house. Currently the house has baseboard heating that is costing a small fortune each year in heating costs.
I'm a single male, who was taking care of my terminally ill father until recently and, as such, do not have a particularly huge budget. I'd like some estimates of the cost of these various jobs.
The house is a bungalo, approximately 1300 sq feet and was built in the early 70's. The basement is mostly finished, with an apartment that is not currently rented.
House approximately 20 years old
Basement is finished, with stone floor
Need to build walls/a divider of some sort, with door, to separate office area from children's play room. Open to ideas. Would require the extension of an existing wall and an additional door to close off playroom entirely. Being able to see children play from office area would be great. This is your opportunity to be creative in design. :-)
One support column where wall would go. Could be contained within the wall?
Irregular ceiling (part drywall, part "tongue and groove" wood
Stone floor... will be carpeted after walls are in. Would like to be able to keep stone floor intact if at all possible, so carpet could be removed later if desired without having to refloor the basement
Also to be done... eventually (or now, depending on cost)
There is a "laundry area" in the basement, which originally housed the old style washer and dryer. There is a "frame" surrounding the area, to which sliding doors were attached, to close it off from the rest of the basement. The sellers would not include the washer and dryer, so these will be replaced with front loaders, which are too deep for the area. The "frame" needs to be removed, and the area needs to be closed off again so that the laundry area is self contained. I am open to suggestions for a better door system, so that the whole laundry area (which is linear, against the wall... shelving, washer, dryer, laundry tub) is accessible when doing laundry, rather than having to slide the doors back and forth, which is rather inconvenient.
Work MUST be completed between June 15th and June 20th (possession and move-in dates)
Will send virtual tour pictures to interested bidders upon request.
My house was built in 1996. The main portion of the basement has been finished already but the laundry area is not. I would like to have it finished but the hot water tank and furnace are there in the middle of the room and that will most likely be the most difficult challenge. Obviously, there has to be access to these areas. As well, the walls will have to be drywalled and I would like cupboards, shelves and a folding table installed. As much storage room as possible would be great. The room itself is about 10 feet by 14 feet and there is an area underneath the stairs which right now we use to store boxes, etc. Electrical and plumbing will have to be dealt with. Right now we have a laundry tub between the washer and dryer and it is sufficient. Putting in a new sink is not a requirement. The floor is just the original cement, but I would like tile down there. This will also probably be difficult. As far as the shelves and cupboards, we want decent stuff but it doesn't have to be top quality. Same with the tile. Really, I just want it to look clean and be more functional than it is right now. I hope this is sufficient information. Thanks for your help.
Complete basement - - Studding, drywalling, electrical, drop ceiling, and flooring.
Right now it is an open space with insulation halfway down the walls. It needs everything from beginning to end. I would like to have a laundry room, two closets, a computer nook and the rest open concept to make use of complete space.
We are looking to have a basement reno. The basement is only approx. 500 sqft. We need a 2-3 piece bathroom, framing of walls, insulation, drywalling, ceiling, some lights and flooring. There is no rough in for plumbing expect for the laundry room.
Any ideas on pricing would be appreciated.
