Create a more open concept main floor.

Our home is 7 years old with a private dining room set off from the kitchen. I would like to have the wall between the dining room and living room torn down to create a more open concept main floor. We already have hardwood flooring in the dining room but would need to have hardwood put in the living room once the wall is removed. The dinning room needs to be repainted. We are also interested in replacing the carpet in our upstairs hallway with hardwood.

Dry Wall repair, Metal box removed, front of house patched

Removed old baseboard heaters on wall. Need to replace old dry wall and fix up the wall.

Need to remove old metal Air conditioner frame (Just the metal frame - the guts are now gone) - This metal frame goes all the way to the outside of the house. Need front of house closed with plywood and insulated inside.

Note: There is one electrical outlet above the metal box, ideally this can be moved vertically downward a bit when new dry wall is put in.

Garage Loft +

We are just beginning some home renovations, including a planned basement, but before we do that, we need to get some of the stuff that we've stored downstairs into a different space.

We are looking to have a loft built in our two car garage, using as much available space as possible while still allowing us to use the space for a car and a van.

We would like the loft to be accessible by a retractable ladder, if possible. We are open to creative solutions!

Hydro pole replacement on our rural property

We are looking for a contractor to look after the replacement of a hydro pole that's on our rural property in North Milton close to Acton. The pole is currently in a cement block but is rotting and leaning over. We are on the escarpment so you can only dig down about a foot until you hit solid limestone. We need a new pole put up and the hydro & utility lines transferred to the new pole. We need it done fairly urgently as we're worried it's going to come down completely with some high winds. The pole is at the side of our house and approximately 150 feet from the road.

Kitchen & basement

I am looking to rearrange and add to my existing kitchen as well as completely finish my basement (no kitchen or bathroom needed). Please feel free to contact me to schedule and estimate.

I would rather use my existing cabinets if possible. They are 4 years old from Mattamy. I will also need to add a double pantry and re arrange the counter/sink. As for the basement, it is a simple framing and finishing with 3 rooms (home theatre, storage and furnace/cat litter).

Thank you,

Jill

Opening the dividing wall of living room and dining room

We would like to open up the space on our living room and dining room. The work to be done is installing a support laminated beam (3 of 2x10's) across with 2 supporting studs on each side to transfer the weight from the studs to be taken out (3 studs).

WE are looking for a contructor/handyman to do the job right, we would like to know how they will do it and making sure that they will install a temporary support before removing the 3 studs that is bearing some weight above it. Should be experienced on doing this kind of job.

Note:

The electrical plugs that is on that wall will just be disconnected and there's nothing else on that wall. (the air return will be on the floor to be covered by grill as it is).

Removal of possible load bearing walls

We currently are looking to completely remove one wall separating our kitchen and small dining room and install "pocket" french doors in the wall separating the small dining room and living room. The wall between the kitchen/dining room is just over 10' long and already has an opening located in it to allow access into the kitchen. The wall separating the dining room/living room is the exact same size and we are looking to install french pocket doors in it and close off the door opening that already exists in that wall. The easiest way to envision the 3 rooms would be to picture the kitchen on the left as a rectangle, the small dining room as a smaller square in the middle and the living room as a rectangle on the right. I am looking to remove the small dining room's left wall and completly close off and install doors on the small dining room's right wall. I am looking ideally for a licensed contractor who can determine if they are indeed load bearing walls, and then quote the job taking into account the proper permits/drawings needed to complete construction and close off the permit.
