The square footage is approximately 700 to 1000. My goal is to have a two bedroom with bathroom and kitchen and to have a separate entrance to the basement installed. based on the cost will consider having large windows installed. The basement is currently unfinished and the house is 9 years old. however it is was a sales centre converted to a new home so it is currently covered under the new home warrant as a new home 1 year old.
My goal is to have this job begin in approximately July and finished for September.
Material for flooring would be laminate and ceramic tiles. and a finished ceiling with quote for pot lights or regular light fixtures.
Would like someone with experience in developing basements in the Oshawa area and who is familiar with the by-laws.
We recently had a rental property inspected with a view to having it registered with the City of Oshawa as a legal 2-unit house. The Fire Department and City of Oshawa provided us with a list of requirements, the most onerous being that the basement bedrooms need to be 6'5" in height for all egress routes. Currently, they are between 5'11" and 6'3" and the main support beam (wooden, not steel) runs through the middle of the basement at 6'2" at front of the two bedrooms. There is also ductwork running through the middle of both bedrooms that would need to be rerouted along the edges of the house and bedroom walls. We would like to know whether it is possible to make the apartment comply with the City's requirements and, if so, what the cost would be to make it happen.
We have a basement apartment that requires some renovations.
- There is a side entrance with stairs and a walk out patio door (needs to be replaced since it is old!).
- The basement is finished (bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, living area, office) but the layout is not ideal.
- We need a shared laundry room which will affect the current kitchen (currently they are a combined space in the basement).
- We need help figuring out a design that will effectively serve the needs of a basement apartment and shared laundry.
- We need to potentially add a window to the bedroom (above grade)
- We would like to keep costs as low a possible and are willing to do some of the work ourselves and to be somewhat flexible with our timeline.
- If you have other questions about the project, feel free to contact me and I can hopefully answer your questions to help develop a more accurate quote.
I would like somebody to come an give me a quote for putting up a single beam across my basement. Right now there is half of a steel beam with post and the other half is a wall I would like to remove the wall and have only 1 beam with no posts. To keep cost down I am willing to do whatever I can myself.
Looking for someone who can start in the next week or so. Basement is 20-30% complete. Looking to add a 4pc washroom, close in furnace room (interior of furnace room to be left unfinished. Egress window addition, 3 interior doors and 1 double French door. Delta FL and subfloor or dricor and laminate flooring. Trying to keep the budget under $25K with tax.

We are looking to get our basement finished. Approximately 620 square feet. Would be two rooms. A smaller toy room and the rest open. Requires 3 doors installed. Possibly a gas fireplace installed directly below where the gas fireplace is on the main level. Thinking drop ceiling where possible and pot lights throughout.
Was posted before but the posting was premature. Now ready to realistically move forward. Looking for a reputable and efficient specialist to finish my basement. The job will include full 3 piece bathroom (not roughed in - so concrete work required), entertainment room including bar, additional multipurpose room. Framing is about 85-90% complete but some key areas would need to be added to.
Currently meeting with contractors for details, quotes and budget sits more realistically in the $20,000-$30,000 range.
I am looking for someone to finish my small basement. My basement is 626 sq ft and the insulation is in a good state so does not need to be replaced. The house is 3 years old. I want a laundry area in the basement with a counter and a few cabinets. Storage should be created around the staircase and the furnace. I want laminate floors that are long lasting. A bathroom is not needed.

We are looking to have the drywalling in our basement completed, including levelling of the floor, painting and carpeting of the floor and staircase the leads upstairs. The previous owner started drywalling but there is still more to be done before the basement is usable. He made a decent start and we're looking for someone to finish the job for us.
Wanting to finish the basement in our new house - built in 2006. It's an L-shaped space approx. 32' by 24'. Looking to frame the walls and drywall them, carpet the floors and dropdown the ceiling with panneling to hide ducts and electrical, etc. Most of the area will be open minus one small utility/storage room that will have a wash tub and the furnace in it. Also want to close in and carpet the stairs and put in a small closet under the stairs. One of the walls has the electrical panel on it so we'd like to conceal it somehow. Want to use simple pot lighting and insulation on most walls is not needed as it's a townhouse. Simple and straighforward really - just want to make the space usuable. Would love to have a ballpark estimate as this is our first project in the house.
Install gas fireplace , new flooring, insulation, drywall, and add shower to existing bathroom.
We would like a basement that's warm and cozy for our two boys play area and entertaining for my wife and I. Basically a revamp of basement which also includes a laundry room, pantry, and storage area.
I have recently moved into a 30 year old home in the West Lynde area of Whitby. The basement has been somewhat finished but not to my liking. The old owners put up some walls, slapped on some paint and called it done. Three of the walls are outside walls with paint applied directly over the concrete walls - very cold! The space is approximately 13 X 24, with some work needed on the stairs and hall outside the main room.
My three kids are looking for a space to entertain friends. The wish list includes a spot to play a game of mini sticks, a dance floor to perfect a tap dance routine (with a dance bar and mirror wall) and a relaxing corner to watch a movie or play the Wii.
My husband and I are looking to renovate a completely unfinished basement. It would need framing, insulating, drywall and some electrical. It is approx 180-200 sq ft. It is a new home..1-2 years old..never been lived in(in a new townhouse complex)
Easy access to the basement through the backyard(there is a sliding door on ground level right into the room)
We have no preferred materials at this point(would need to discuss some options with the contractor) We would however like carpeting, not wood or laminate flooring
Thank you for your time
We have a brick bungalow with a walkout from the basement and are looking to have the laundry room converted into a bedroom, downstairs bathroom gutted and remodelled, and all of the downstairs remodelled (carpet replaced with tile or laminate, more lighting put in, bar remodelled, wall knocked out and opened up, etc.). The basement is roughly 800 square feet.
We are looking to get our third level redone (it is a back split). It is currently two rooms that we would like to convert into one big rec room. We need someone to come in and give us a quote on what we would like done. It involves pulling three exterior walls down and re-insulating, removing interior wall and putting in a support column, redoing the ceiling, installing pot lights, installing laminate floors, and electrical work as well. Thank you.
I have a basement that is totally unfinished that is about 1200 square feet. I am wanting to finish about half of it (550sq feet, and turn it into a rec room. I am planning to do the floors myself but need a contractor to do the framing, drywall, ceiling and electrical work. The house is about 20 years old and the house itself is in good condition.
After remediation done on basement, the unit is no longer liveable: bedroom walls taken to foundation as another problem found...outside wall needs dug and reparged. Bedroom walls removed to foundation, bathroom toilet and tub left with only one bath wall left.
Other partial walls left in unit. New window needed, carpet, painting. New entrance door and frame to be installed.
Needs to be quoted on asap as unit needs to be up and running by June 1st hopefully.
I have a room in the back corner of my house in dire need of attention. I recently removed all the walls, floors, and false ceiling in order to begin renovation and found many problems. Water/moisture is accumulating in the corner of the room, so the first issue I need to address is how it is getting in. The foundation is cinderblock and appears to be in OK condition. Secondly, I had a family member come in to "help out" and he cut out a small portion of the cinderblock base of a load bearing wall to make a doorway... and that small section is starting to sag. Thirdly, to fix this, we have decided that we want to extend the family room which has a bar into this room by knocking out another wall, so the bar extension would fall into this project as well. If you feel you could help out and make it worth my time and money give me a call.
