I am thinking of purchasing a home in my area. I do not want to purchase this house until I get a rough estimate of what my financial commitment would be to renovating the basement for a potential renter. The house is approx 30 - 40 years old and there is an exsisting bathroom located in the basement. I need a shower stall added to this bathroom. This would most likely include demo of a wall to make the addition. I would also require a kitchen put in place in the basemnt as well. I would require cabinetry, countertops, sink, etc. (and of course the installation of these). The bathroom is located directly beside a hotwater heater and there is an exsisting drain for the potential kitchen. The house does not look like it has had any renovations done to it in the past 10 years or so. Needs to be viewed....
Thank you all for your time,

Due to a recent basement water seepage, floor and drywalls (on all of the exterior walls) in our basement have been removed. We are interested to replace them back.
We are also interested to add a shower to the existing two-piece bathroom which will require moving one of the drywall (8' x 7') and moving two interior doors. In addition, we are interested to make changes to reorganize unused furnace area and define the laundary room.
The house is around 50-year old bungalow and was thoroughly renovated from inside.
The house (small bungalow) was built in 1949 and has a number of issues (including wiring and plumbing). I don't know the condition of the foundation, but the basement is old, musty, and generally unusable. Half of it has been damaged by water more than once (pitted concrete) and although there's no visible mould, the whole basement is somewhat damp. The other half is an old apartment that needs to be updated so it can be used. I don't know the exact measurements, but the basement is roughly 20' by 30'. A solid, no-frills renovation of the entire basement is in order.
A careful evaluation and detailed estimate will be required, but please provide a rough estimate based on the following:
- replace or repair damaged concrete floors and flooring
- renovate walls and ceilings
- replace five basement windows
- install washing machine, dryer, and laundry sink
- replace counters and cupboards in apartment kitchenette
- renovate small apartment bathroom (install shower, sink, and new toilet)
Please do not respond unless you are a professional contractor who can handle the scope of such a renovation competently and efficiently, and be prepared to provide references and/or samples of your successful work. If you fit this description, please provide a rough estimate via email and I will follow up accordingly.

Need help finishing a basement renovation. Room size approximately 36 x 18, low ceiling in basement (1920s house). Most of the framing and drywall is already completed. Electrical completed. Looking for minor framing, build 2 bulk heads, finish drywall (including mud and tape of entire room), reface fireplace for installation of gas insert, install dry-core subfloor (materials already onsite).
Finishing a basement of approximately 700 sq ft. Almost all drywall is complete, only bedroom (125 sq ft) and bathroom to be finished. Require taping and mudding of all walls and ceiling along with some carpentry work in the bedroom (framing a closet).
I would like an estimate on the mud work as well as the framing.
My townhouse is 40 years old. Plan is to rearrange the bathroom & adjoining bedroom space to create a larger main bath & new ensuite. Main bath - may install new tub, tile tub surround & skirt, tile floor, install new longer cabinet, install new toilet & sink, paint. Ensuite - tile floor & part-way up walls, build separate custom shower, install soaker tub with deck & skirt, install vanity with double sink, install toilet. Configuration of new ensuite to be determined.
We need to redo the floor in our basement. Right now they are vinyl tiles. So we would like someone to give us ideas and do the job.
We need to build a walk-in closet or simply a closet in our basement. The closet would approx 12' (length) 3' (breadth) 7' (height). The back wall (dry wall) is already there and we just need to build the front wall. I am not sure if the front wall should be a dry wall with an entrance door or should be sliders for closet or even something else. I would like to discuss it with a handyman on various options and will go for something which is cheaper and looks OK.
My 1000 sq feet basement was flooded with 1 inch of rainwater recently. We already removed the carpet, dried the floor, but the moisture meter still detects water in the dry walls. We want to replace 2 feet of drywall around the entire basement and have it painted. We want to replace around 5 doors. We need to replace the kitchen counter top. We need to replace 3 sink cabinets in the washrooms. We need to install a new Allure Vinyl flooring.
I will supply all the materials.
We are looking for someone who can get the work started immediately at a reasonable price.
Our 2 storey house was built in the mid 60's with 2 original bathrooms on the 2nd floor,(main & ensuite). During the coldest winter nights, the entire 2nd floor wall of the house facing north is extremely cold. 1 bedroom; 1 closet; and both bathrooms in question share that wall. In July, we will have lived in this house for 8 years and my family & I love it but I refuse to live here another winter.
New home completing end of July. The builder has framed, insulated, electrical and has plumbed the bathroom. I have chosen a 1.99 sf laminate from the Depot and want to match the upstairs bathroom tiles (under 4 dollars a sf). Need someone to finish the drywall, paint, install the floors and tile the bathroom and do the doors and trim. It's a 900 sf square room. Ready to start once the house has been closed.

I have three renovations I'd like to complete in the next year or so, so am researching estimates to get an idea of cost and timelines.
The first is removing a previously existing closet (demo, new drywall) and then building a new closet spanning the width of the master bedroom.
The second is enclosing a side entrance to make it a small 'mud room'.
The final one is building interior stairs to the basement. We currently have a rental unit in the basement, so the interior stairs were removed by the previous owners. We hope to convert this back to a usable basement in the next few years so are interested in seeing how difficult this would be.
The house is a 1950's semi-detached house in the Jane and Dundas area. Please call or email to set up a time to come and see the areas where we'd like to renovate to provide an estimate.
