This is so my elderly mother (who fell from the stairs few days ago and is now sleeping in the living room sofa) does not have to go upstairs to sleep/shower.
Rooming House requiring Fire Separations, i have a document from the Fire Department for some Fire work they're Requesting.
I've have been asked to quote on this job, but i'm only a Fire Alarm Technician, which i will be providing them, with a quote for my work.
So i need a Contractor who is familiar with the Fire Code, for Rooming Houses.
Here it is.... the house is over 100 years old and needs some fixing up. The previous owners renovated the basement but left the furnace room out of it. the room is bare blotchy with holes concrete or cement walls that are not properly framed. It needs to have the holes patched or covered and then insulated framed and drywalled. the floor needs to be repaired as well to make it liveable. The other room that needs attention is the storage room it has the same issue as the furnace room. We also have some small odd jobs like repairing the roof on the flat part of our house it has a hole that is leaking inside the sunroom. We also have an issue with our bathtub not draining properly so that needs to be addressed as well.
My wife and I are planning on doing an extension and some major renovations in our 1100 sqft semi-detached home. We have gotten the OK from our connected neighbours. The house is about 45 years old and I'd imagine there'd be a bit of work related to the job due to the age of the home and the job itself.
Would you please send a rough quote regarding the following:
1. Approx. addition cost to the back of the house of main, top, and basement with a total additional sqft of ~800 sqft plus basement. The additions of each floor would be 15x25ft. Finishes would be average.
2. We currently only have 1 bathroom on the top floor. We would like to add another on the opposite side of the same floor (assuming we have the space). How much would the relocation/additional plumbing cost?
3. Renovation of the rest of the existing house. ie. removing walls, changing up flooring, adding pot lights throughout the house etc.
All of the above is assuming we have all of the required permits.
We are homeowners looking to renovate our first home which was built around the 1960's and are looking for a one stop shop contractor – one who can help us with the design, provide suggestions, buy materials, etc. We prefer mid-range materials and would like to start renovations in September and do plan on selling the house in a few years.
1. Renovate kitchen: install new cabinets, drawers, sink, back splash, light fixtures (including lighting under the cabinets), island (will need to open up wall) and change current layout by moving the location of the current kitchen door (which leads to the mudroom/sun room) to the dining room in order to create better flow which will involve sealing off the current kitchen door and instead perhaps install a sliding barn door in the dining room leading to the mudroom/sun room (we are open to other suggestions on how to make the kitchen more functional)
2. Install pot lights in living room, hallway, and dining room
3. Install new flooring in kitchen (ceramic tiles), living room (hardwood), hallway (ceramic tiles) dining room (hardwood), 2 bedrooms (hardwood), washroom (ceramic tiles) and mudroom/sun room (ceramic tiles)
4. Update washroom: replace vanity and light fixture
5. Fresh coat of paint on all walls
6. Replace front door, back door and door leading to the basement

1. Create a new laundry room in the basement cold room: move washer and dryer from current location; add insulation, drywall, new flooring, counter top, cabinets in new laundry room
2. Install a new stair handrail

Our house is a 1000 sq. ft.. bungalow with a high basement. We have demolished our basement due to moisture problems and did "waterproofing" from the inside (dimple board, weeping tile and sump pump). We now want to:
1. Insulate and finish our basement (upgrade electricity, lighting, new HVAC ducts, plumbing, stairs to ground floor, new windows and doors, and wall/floor/ceiling finishes) - living room, recreation room, full bath, kitchen, and a laundry room.
2. Demolish, insulate and finish our main floor (upgrade electricity, lighting, new HVAC ducts, plumbing, stairs to first floor, new windows and doors including increasing existing openings, and wall/floor/ceiling finishes) - powder room, kitchen, dining room and living room.
3. Add an additional story (1000 sq. ft. new construction) with a pitched roof (cathedral ceilings with 4 skylights) - 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, walk-in-closet and a laundry room.
4. New detached single car garage and driveway.
NB - We can't access the unit to view or do this job until the second week of May - preferred completion May 10-12th.
Remove and dispose of approx 12-15' of interior wall (non load-bearing), and rough patch drywall. This is a thin wall (approx 3") with no plumbing or electrical re-routing (there may be a single junction box). This wall is inside a condo in an older building (built 1973) near Jane and Eglinton, and condo rules require contractors to provide proof of license and insurance.
I have a bungalow and planning to remove load bearing wall in the basement.
Length of the wall is around 28 ft (block wall).
Would like to replace with flush beam or LVL.
Looking for an engineer/architect quote for drawings and building permit.
I have the old blueprints from 1959.
Looking to remove all structural walls on the 1st floor of my town home.
Contractor must have extensive knowledge and experience dealing with these kind of structural changes.
I already have a structural engineer and based on the report given, the project will require the installation of:
1. Two 17'9" W8x24 steel beams or 3-ply 1 3/4" x 14" LVL
2. One 10'7" W6x25 steel beam or 4-ply 1 3/4" x 7 1/4" LVL
The project may include an extensive overhaul of the unit's electrical (new wiring, and circuit panel). Also, an HVAC conversion is also planned while the house is under renovations.
Lastly, contractor must be fully insured and have WSIB coverage.
I am looking for trades in the following areas for work currently needed to be completed.

I have 1000 square foot bungalow.
I would like to 'to up' with the same area to accommodate 3-4 bedrooms with a 3 piece bathroom.
Reconfigure the main floor with more open area, update kitchen, and change the bathroom to a powder room.
Upgrade the basement:
Increase water supply and replace sewage pipes.
Upgrade the bathroom and laundry room.
I'm aware that there would be electrical, plumbing, flooring, windows, etc...But this job would be strictly based on functionality and extremely low costs.
Should matters unfold I would be looking at a 2017 spring or summer start.
We have decided that we want to make 2 units into one. Therefore breaking down walls and putting up walls to make seperate offices.
Adding a washroom and a bigger size kitchen.
