Due to funding issue, I have not respond to any contractor last year when I posted this. Now the funding issue has been resolved. I really need quotes now and decide what to do.
Old house over 50 years old and hasn't been taken care of properly. I'm not a handy owner. Something has to be done. Need rough quotes on the following 3 senarios. Will pick one to do.
1) small repairs on some damaged areas of the house, a cheap remodeling of kitchen & 2 very small bathrooms (one in basement) to make them more usable (currently bad condition). Budget under $30,000 (This option would need to focus on fixing the appearance for the purpose of selling the house)
2) tear down existing fixtures of the house. total renovation, changing the whole lay out of the house, a new Kitchen (need to have big kitchen with lots of counter space, island, 2nd sink/faucet), new 2 Bathrooms (make the existing one bigger and add ensuite to master bedroom), possiblely new addition either towards the back of the house or a full 2nd floor. Also some work for the basement as well. Budget $100,000 plus..
3) completely bulldoze the house and custom build a new house. perfer already designed house. lot size 50'x100', living space needed in new house 2000 sqft & up not including basement. Need a general idea of how much this option is going to cost and if it's even worth doing.
Need a rough idea of prices for these options and see if my budgets are reasonable. Will decide on one option.

To fit across my balcony outside from ceiling to floor
1@ 106w"x96h or 2 @ 54"w x 96"h
This will have to be done in two or three panels
This one is for outside only for 6 months of the summer (not in winter)so would need a material that can take the rain and sun etc easy to wipe etc
INdoor ones wont need that
the other four are for inside my windows, sizes are
1 @ 48"w x 57"h
1 @ 46"w x 57"h
2 @ 50"w x 57"h
OUtside curtain requires a tracking system they are hung from that slides them back and forth

We have a 2 story bungalow and the upper attic space has been previously finished to include 2 small bedrooms. The rooms are adequate but have quite a drastic slope and there is unused attic space on either side of both rooms. We would like to get an estimate of adding a dormer or 2 to these rooms to open the headroom up and also create space for a 2 piece bathroom. Right now we only have 1 bathroom and its on the main floor, so we have to go downstairs in the middle of the night to use it. Dormers seem like the most logical solution to these problems.
I bought my house around a year ago and I was conserened about how the addition was built. The inspector and previous owner all said it was fine. Well my nightmare came true.
The addition is about 12x12, and I recentely found out it use to be a deck. They covered the deck boards with plywood and the build three walls and covered it with a roof. They fixed the inside and it turned out to be a lovely addition.
Well, I noticed the floor was sloaping down towards one side and then I saw from the outside after removing a panel, that the joists that was holding the floor were sitting on soil and rottening away.
So I need someone to come and reframe the floor and support the perimeter walls propperly.
The addition is about 4 years old the house was built in 67.
The site is Hamilton mountain east.
I have had bad experiences with contractors so I only want to deal with the honest ones. My contractor bailed on me without completing the job.

The attic space in a one story house seems to have the space to be build out to a guestroom. It is an older (50+) house.
The attic is dry walled but no proof of insulation. The floor needs to be redone. We are not sure if the floor is strong enough to hold up a guests room.
Also ventilation and electricity migth be in need of a check up.
New Bakery opening. Need a complete face lift on exterior and interior. False front to build height on exterior with wood detailing on entire front. Tile and stone to be placed on walls in store front.
Need a designer as well, to conceptualize our vision for our work space and store front. example: warn barn board and beams for ceiling design, stone on walls, painting in earth tones with splashes of interesting colors. Wood work for counter tops.
Basically, need to design and construct every square inch!
1 1/2 Storey home
Lot size 40'x120'
Existing basement is unfinished with ceiling height of ~9'
The idea is to extend the basement at the rear of the house.
Length: ~ 15'
Height: ~ 9'
Include excavation, exterior waterproofing (including weeping tile) and opening up the existing wall to connect the basement & the addition.
This space will be used for storage, but would still require HVAC (no plumbing though).
On the main floor we have an existing sunroom extended from the home (a previous addition).
We'd like it demolished (which we can do ourselves) and replaced with a 4-season sunroom with many windows and a sliding glass door.
On top of the sunroom we'd ideally like to see a walk-out deck from the upstairs bedroom with French doors and railings.
There is room all around the property for heavy equipment access. We will complete and decorate the interiors ourselves. And we could have the hole excavated ourselves as well, if we needed to.
What we definitely need professionals for is:
Building basement extension (footings, pouring the floor, pouring concrete walls, water proofing the exterior, installation of 1 basement window;
build sunroom (floor level is about 5' above grade to meet main floor level) including floor, windows, and roof/deck combo); and build the walk-out deck, add French doors to the exterior wall (in place of existing window), including railings.

We are looking for three quotations for the following work to be done:
1. Remove the drywall in the basement and the cold room, as well as the ceiling and dispose of all material removed. The basement is approximately 700 square feet. The house was built in 1890, but the walls were put up in the mid-1970's. There is a bathroom and a half kitchen in the basement that have to be removed and disposed of as well.
2. There is mould in the following areas of the house that has to be cleaned:
a. Basement Laundry Area
b. Main Level Kitchen Ceiling
c. Main Level Kitchen Sink Base Cabinet
d. Second Level Bathroom Vanity Base
e. Second Level Bathroom Ceiling (Ventilation Area)
f. Second Level Master Bedroom (Lower East Wall)
Mould remediation will consist of HEPA vaccuum and wet wipe the mould areas with mild soap and water as per inspection report. We have a mould inspection report that will be provided when contractor is onsite for an estimate.
3. A Plumbing Inspection to repair any leaks. Leaks that we have found are located in the basement laundry area (plumbing leak at water main), main level kitchen ceiling, main level kitchen base sink cabinet (plumbing leak at sink), second level bathroom base cabinet (plumbing leak at sink).

Bathroom and kitchen renovation (2-phase). May need plumbing and wiring moved. May need to have an architect look at the possibilities. Considering adding 8' extension to link to external wall to add a window and remove the individual rooms. Right now we have a sep. toilet room and shower room within the 12x12 bathroom space.

Front double door is off centre and one of its doors is non usable because the kitchen cupboards are behind it. Existing photos attached.
A large garage with 3 garage doors, room for 4-6 cars and work shop. plus and 1 apartment on the side. Steel and concrete, siding and perhaps board and batten with brick skirt. Plumbing (water and sewer) and heat and electric. Steel roof and a modern set of windows/ glass garage doors.
We have a century home in Hamilton that is currently a duplex but used to be a 4 plex. We want to convert it back to a 4 plex. This will require erecting a couple of walls and demolishing or breaking through a couple of walls. It will require building a couple of kitchens as well. A couple of bathrooms also need to be overhauled. There is a need for new flooring and, possibly, some new windows.
The house is 3000 square feet. The main floor kitchen was recently done and needs no work. The basement unit needs very little work. We need someone who is available in 4-6 weeks to being the work.
