There is a leak in the basement foundation wall occurring under the window. Wall is dry but water is on floor
we have decided to stay in our house for another 6 years at least. The house is 23 years old and we had a new kitchen put in and upgraded our dining room and hall way.
We now need to change a few things. First the family room. It has wood panels all around and looks very dated. it needs to be stripped completely, everything removed stucco, carpet fireplace shelves and stones around the fireplace. Then we need to redo the walls coat of paint install hardwood floor new fireplace new pot light on the ceiling. (10x12).
There is the upstairs to do too but I'll wait to hear from someone before continuing.
My tenant drove (accelerated) into the back (interior) of my separate (lane way accessed) garage. There is no foundation damage (foundation about 1.5 feet above ground), but the 2x4 laying horizontally on top of the ~4" foundation is damaged. It runs most of the width of the double garage (single-door), except for the width of an entrance door frame. The interior walls of the garage are unfinished nor is there insulation, but some wiring here & there. Likely need to lift the other vertical struts to change the horizontal one. No damage to the exterior vinyl panelling is apparent. So, I need the above fixed. Reaching out to handymen as I prefer to take care of myself than put this through insurance (lose claims free discount). So, would appreciate receiving quotes from any interested parties.
I am in a house that is about 20 yrs old but I am looking for quotes to do the following work and then do the work afterwords:
1. Attic Insulation. I recently had a home inspection done and it appears the insulation in the attic is totally deficient even by 1991 standards from when the house was built. I suspect it has everything to do with the fact my ex-spouses' father had racoons in the attic who possibly destroyed part of the insulation and his father never replaced such insulation. I need a quote and then I need the work done. I would like to take the insulation up to R40 or R50?
2. Masonry - the stone steps up to the house due to weather and age conditions have never been fixed - they are hazardous as per a home inspection - they need to be replaced, levelled or whatever needs to be done. I need a quote and the work needs to be done.
3. Drywall. Due to a leak in the foundation, my ex-spouse removed 2 partial rooms of drywall and never bothered to fix it up - again, I need a quote and I need the work done.
4. Carpet - same issue - leak in foundation he let the water sit for a long time on the carpet and the carpet isn't so great down in the basement so it probably needs to be replaced. Also, given the age of the carpet upstairs (ie over 20 yrs old) I need a quote on replacing the carpet in 3 bedrooms and replacement of carpet in the family room with laminate and/or hardwood (hardwood not from China). Quote and work.
5. Toilets - and sinks. Toilets still do not work properly - they were broken when I moved in here from the matrimonial home - ex-spouse left them broken. They are over 20 yrs old and need to be replaced. Sinks also need to be replaced. Tub is fine for now.
6. Kitchen cupboards - melamine - starting to fall apart - need to be replaced and/or if the fronts could be replaced at this time I can worry about doing the whole thing later hopefully when the house is mine.
7. Decks and fences - in a state that they are falling down and into the property. Again, nothing was maintained at this house ever for 20 yrs. I need a quote on replacing the deck which is larger and I need a quote on doing 2 or 3 sides of the fence in the backyard.
8. Grounds. I have a hole in the passageway between this house and the neighbour's - not sure what it is about but it needs to be fixed as one can trip and fall. The grounds in general were so zoo-like that everything had to be cut back and I personally removed about 10 huge Home Depot like bags of weeds from the property last spring/summer. There are still many more to go and basically I didn't even have grass hardly last year - the yards will need more work this year and I still have Rose of Sharon "bushes" that are well in excess of 25 feet in the front of the house that I need to be dealt with.
9. Windows. Another quote - again they are 20 yrs old and need to be replaced. One of the basement windows was so badly rusted out it came out of its sockets and I have a kitchen Bay window that is "wet" aka "soggy" outside to the touch. I had the windows painted outside last fall to "preserve them" at least until this Spring to deal with.
I am already in the process of getting quotes to replace the furnace and air conditioning system as well and as well replacing all appliances which have either quit or are about to quit or are broken.
All in all quite the condition he left this in! In any event if you could kindly respond and provide quotes so I can start attending to all of this stuff it would be greatly appreciated.

We have a renovated open concept bungalow that used to be a standard, L-shaped bungalow. Currently, when you walk in the front door, there is a small, tiled area, with a small coat closet to the left, the kitchen straight ahead, and the living room to the right. We would like to construct a half wall to the right of the door, with a pillar ascending to the top of the roof (we have a raised ceiling), to provide some separation from the entranceway and the rest of the room. The half wall would be above 4ft (?) tall.
Redo kitchen: install one wall IKEA kitchen, new appliances, small laundry room off kitchen. Remove small wall and swing stove 45 degrees to same wall. Redo ceiling and some wall repair.
Redo bathroom: remove bathtub and convert space to walk in shower. Redo ceiling, and plumbing. Install new fixtures.
Remodel small office, change water heater to small one one the wall. Some reconfiguration of walls and floors to accommodate closet.
Remove existing tile and lay new concrete tiles throughout office, kitchen, bath and entrance hall. New lighting in all areas. Will need some dry walling done.
Small (65 sq m) condo, tenant will not be moving out during construction.
We have a 2750 sq ft, 25 yr old, 4 bdrm home in Oakville that needs help! We originally wanted to do a new kitchen but then felt that we should take down some walls to open things up. Then we considered swapping the position of the kitchen and dining room to create more of a Great Room feeling. Ideally I would like a space that flows from the kitchen to dining room to family room and my husband would like to maintain a formal living room as well. The kitchen is in the middle of the house at the back with the dining room to the west and the family room to the east. The family room also has a step down and elevated ceilings so that is an added difficulty in getting the flow I desire. I have no idea how to achieve this with our floor plan and am at a loss to know what professional I need to consult....a designer? an architect? We have a contractor but he does not do any designing and while we have spoken to some "kitchen" people, they cannot help me on the overall design. We want to start this process but don't know what to do? Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. I'd like to hear some preliminary ideas from you, possible estimates (obviously difficult, logically general but would be appreciated) and reasons why we should contact you for an on-site visit. Links to your websites would also be helpful.
We are ready to proceed as soon as we have a design. The sooner the better but I have no idea how to find the person that will help me to realize our vision.

We want to change the wall between the kitchen and family room into a half wall or peek-aboo/wall with cut out. We need to determine whether this is doable in terms of the bedroom on the second floor, being above this wall on the main floor (I am wondering whether this is a load-bearing wall).
