I am looking for someone to come in and turn my attic space into a "livable" area.
Some of the things that need to happen are: Roof Venting Baffles, Insulation, Framing of Knee walls, Installation of plumbing for small powder room, Framing of powder room, Electrical install, Installation of 3 windows, Drywall/taping/mudding, Installation of laminate flooring and Molding installed.
46' Long x 12' Wide for half and 15' for half, roof is fairly steep pitched and it's a third floor of an old yellow brick home.
I am a DIY guy but this job is too big for me to knock off on my own over my summer vacation.
We are interested in putting 2 balconies on top of the existing exterior wall extensions as shown in this image) In addition to 2 balconies, we want to cut the window (on left) to be a door for balcony access, and on right to be a larger (60") sliding door. Please let us know if this is an area of your expertise, and any indication of costs involved.

Hello. I am still looking for estimates on my project in London Ontario. I would prefer to have London contractors bid on the job. I need a tub which has tile surrounding it (white) removed, the tile extended to the floor. I want this turned into a walk in shower..tile floor?
Door and safety bars installed and a seat. I also need a new roof , facia, soffits capped and new eavestroughs at the same address. It is a storey and a half gable with two dormers (small house - footprint maybe 900 sq ft). For the bath project I need it to be completed between the 17th and 24th of June. The roofing job I can be flexible. I have one other job which is to prime and paint the interior walls. All one color. No trim painting.This job also needs to be done between the 17th and the 24th of June. The best time for me to have estimates would be either Sunday the 14th any time or Monday in the early evening. I may be able to move this forward..will know shortly. I have not recieved any estimates yet, I hope to look at just two on any one job and decide right away. I have renovated many houses and have a pretty good idea what things should cost so I am not necessarily looking for the lowest qoute. Good references and plenty of experience are more important to me. I want a quality job done right the first time. Marthe
Our main 3 piece bathroom is 5 x 10 . We are wanting to gut it completely, move the toliet & vanity approx. 2 feet, open the bathroom up by closing in the main hallway closet and turning the tub to fit in the closet ( as all the plumbing is in there already). A vent needs to be added and one electrical outlet. We do need a new subfloor & window. Everything is exposed in the basement to make it work easily.
We need advice on an ensuite bathroom shower - would like to make the shower bigger if possible, to fit modern shower doors - also need new toilet and sink/cabinet installed - new flooring - also need fan added to ceiling.
also have 3 bedrooms that need drywall repair // ceiling potlights added and walls painted.
- want expert plumbing skills for advice on shower and expert electrical skills for potlights
- high quality painter and renovation skills
- we are property owner - house is approx. 40-45 years old.
House was built in 1927. We need one bedroom made back into two bedrooms - a wall was removed by a previous owner. The second bedroom needs a closet built and a doorway re-opened. Some electrical work will need to be done. One small window will need to be replaced. Ceiling may need to be replaced on second bedroom.
Also need to refinish hardwood floors in 3 beds and living area.
Install tiles in hallway, kitchen, and bath.
It's a small bungalow:
kitchen size 12.7 x 9.4
garage - I would like 1.5 car size - there is a double driveway there and a carport over
Need the basement insulation on exterior walls
Can you give me a rough idea of the cost involved.Would 40 000 be enough?
During the last heavy storm. Our roof has had some damage to the siding and flashing due to heavy rain / winds. Inside the home we have noticed a crack in the ceiling and bowing likely being from water damage we believe. It is soft to the touch and looks wet. When we looked in the attic to see if there is any sign of a leak we see a mess of excess/ loose insulation and garbage of insulation bags. We would really like to have this resolved sooner than later and to make sure we don't incurr any more damage to our home. The ceiling that is damaged is a popcorn ceiling. We aren't sure if we need to scrape it all off or if it can be repaired and re-popcorned The damaged area in the ceiling appears to be 1 metre by 1 metre, that's just at first glance, it may be worse in the attic.
The house is 31 years old. If there is water damage in the attic we also wish for it to be fixed as well.
Thanks in advance,
Esa and Amanda
Hi Folks. I am interested in having a large fruit cellar beside my front porch. I would like it to be approx, 10 by 20 feet, with 10 feet of soil above the ceiling of the cellar. Would it be possible to get a rough quote on this project, if you do this kind of work.
We have a cold room that we'd like to convert to a usable storage room. Right now the walls are starting to fall apart. The cold room is under our front porch. It has 2 vents to the outside. The door to it is directly off our family room in the basement. It looks like the walls are cement, and as mentioned are really starting to crumble and fall off. I believe the water meter is in there and there is also electricity in there. I'd like to see if it could be finished so we can use it for storage. Approx. measurement of the room is 5'4" x 10'.
- 30 year old townhouse condo
- Presently a workshop off the unfinished laundry room. Would like to combine the space, build in shelving (to store rubbermaid storage boxes, Xmas tree box, luggage, etc.) build in a closet, have an island for folding laundry, replace the laundry tub with sink in a countertop over the washer/dryer. Also would like to extend counter to include a "wrapping" area for gifts, crafts.
- I have drawn some ideas but am open to others.
-Will need to replace an older baseboard heater, add some electrical plugs as well.
We would like to remodel our main floor bathroom ~9 x 6 ft (toilet, vanity and shower) which has a slumped floor due to a previous owner cutting the floor joists to make room for plumbing. Said plumbing also has too shallow a grade to the sewer drain, and the drain may need to be moved. So, the floor and plumbing would need to be repaired/redone first then the bathroom redone. We'd like to move the claw foot tub currently in this bathroom to the upstairs bathroom (drain needed) as well.
Floor: There are 4 joists cut half way through. The floor is slumped so much half the bathroom tiles are cracked. Our heavy cast iron tub sits just above this so its really not safe. We are thinking there will need to be new joists installed alongside the messed up ones. Also, the drainage is done all wrong in the basement (unfinished), we believe the main drain will need to be moved. Possibly need to drill into the concrete.
The bathroom: There is currently a tub, toilet and vanity in there. We would like to move this tub upstairs (there's space but no tub drain). We have ideas of which new vanity (~30-36"), toilet and shower we'd like. The star is the shower, as we'd like the 60" Kohler Choreograph shower panels and a nice top roller sliding glass door. Floor tiled. A shelf installed. We can paint ourselves.
We would like to have this done before the end of the summer at the latest, we will be away the 2 lasts week of June, but any other time works.
I think that sums it up. Look forward to hearing from you through e-mail or phone.
Thanks in advance. :)
We are renovation a leased office space in south london. It requires commercial construction experience, references, and you must be able to supply WSIB- Liability Insurance and supply this information both to our offices, as well as the owner/lessor of the property.
We require detailed drawings and interior layout sheets.
Permits will be acquired as needed.
Electrical, networking for VOip and telephone systems and all interior painting will be included.
Companies should be from the london area, as time for completion may be strained.
We have a 4.5ft wide window facing the back yard that we want to convert to a 6ft wide sliding patio door. There is an electrical outlet that will need to be moved, and a vent on the lower wall that also needs moving (convert to floor vent?). There is also an additional opening in the room that we want expanded, which would involve moving another outlet.
Approximately 40' of vinyl air curtain install around racks, and rack cabinets to create a separation between the hot and cold areas in the server room. This has to be done to fire code standards as well as release hooks to drop the curtain in case of a fire. The curtain will be from the ceiling with is a suspended ceiling down to the cabinets which are approximately 78 1/2" tall. There will be an entrance that will go from the ceiling to the floor that will need to be covered, but allow access to get into the back of the units.
I want to extend a wall (non-load barring) between my dinning room and kitchen, and install two pocket doors therein. No brick involved just wood, drywall, some door framing and the doors hung (no electrical work needed). The entire wall, including two 30" doors, is about 6'. This is not a big job for a pro, but too big for me!
I can send photos of the room to assist you.
Twenty- something years ago we watched our White Oaks backsplit being built. Now we are looking into retirement and considering duplexing our family home. City Hall said zoning is possible. We'll need a small kitchen built into family room, large window changed to an entry, firewall separating house into two units. someone with BCIN, drawings to get building permit etc. Wondering how challenging/expensive to have separate electric meters, furnaces......?! Just in thinking stage, need some ballpark costs and plans. Thanks in advance for your input and interest. Shelley
Our 25 year old 2 story brick house requires a new front porch as the roof is leaking.. The current structure is wooden with a flat roof , a railing on the roof and 2 wooden pillars . The wood a appears to be rotting It is 12 ft x 5 ft. The lighting consists of 2 small lights flanking the door. There is a bathroom window which overlooks the porch. We have 2 ideas:
1)replace the original design with maintenance free (or low maintenance) materials. Change the pillars so that the base is made of brick (complimentary to the brick of the house) Upgrade the lighting .
2) Change the roof line of the porch to be complimentary to the house. There are 2 bay windows with caps over the top on either side of the door/porch- and we feel something similar to the slope and shape of these caps would be reasonable, but do not want to obstruct the bathroom window. Same as above with change to pillars and lighting.
Had a whole house reno done by a friend of the family that went bad. Need to have the laminate removed, shower base removed, subfloor leveled and screwed down properly and reassembled. Staircase and railing needs to be rebuilt - does not pass code. Doors need to be removed and installed properly and the bulkhead in the basement coming off the stairs is too low again, does not pass code.
