I bought my home in 2003. It was built by Minto in 1980. It has very few upgrades and still has its original kitchen. It is a high ranch model home with a split staircase going to top floor and basement from the front entry door. There is a wall that divides the living room from the kitchen, which I would like to remove and create an open concept. I want a new kitchen/cabinets with an island and new appliances. There is a wood stove that I would like to remove completely or replace with a small gas or electric fireplace. Porcelain floor in the kitchen and hardwood floor in the living room, hallway, and stairs. I also have a new home theatre to install in the living room. We would like black cabinets, and possibly black hardwood floor.
We live in Orleans and are looking to open up our living space on the first floor.
We have a a floor plan like this:
| | I want the L shaped wall in he middle removed.
| | | I believe one might be a load bearing wall electric in wall.
| | | Both walls are approx 10 feet long on first floor maybe 9-10 feet high
| ---- ------ | One faces kitchen the other the living room.
| | House built in 2002 no previous reno's
|-----------------| Looking to do in the next month.
We had recently installed & levelled a 10X8 shed foundation of limestone and patio stones. However, the foundation has somehow sunk in some areas and it is so "out of whack" now that we have given up and want to hire someone to do it ASAP.
I would like to know how much it would be to repair and re-level the foundation as well as the price to out it together after the foundation and wood frame are completed. The shed is advertised as to be able to be put together in 3-4 hours. Since you will have more experience in doing these kind of things, you could probably do it in about that amount of time.
Please advise ASAP
Square footage is 20X 30 or 600sq.ft.
Have both a front and back door, laundry room with toilet and shower.
Would probably have to be gutted and redesigned.
Heating would be separate from main house and with a new electrical panel. I am thinking of radiant floor electrical as there is no basement. I need advice. ))
I am looking for a professional to give me proper advice on design.
Definitely NO MORE fly- by -nighters from kijji.
So--New electrical, new insulation -ceiling, floors and walls. new kitchen and new bathroom
Our kitchen is approximately 25 x 12 feet. In between our kitchen and living room is a wall with an entrance way. We would like to take down this wall (there's a corner with a closet that is also being removed). And we would like to rebuild the wall about 10 feet in. The new wall would be about 12-15 feet. The plan for the new doorway is french pocket doors. It is possible that we will need an engineer since likely part of the wall is load-bearing. Our house was built in 1978. After the wall is done we plan on renovating the kitchen and tiling the floor. We may do this project on our own so for now we would only like a quote on the wall.
I have wood trim around my house (everywhere except the front), which is not capped and has started to rot in one spot on my chimney. I'd like to get the rotting pieces replaced and capped (capped? flashed? I hope I'm using the proper term!) so I won't have to worry about it any longer. I would like for all of the wood trim around the rest of the house to be capped, as well.
I have posted some photos here so you can get a better idea of the condition of the wood on the chimney, and a look at the trim on the other side of the house: click here contact me if you'd like to get a better look and give me an estimate.
