House was built approx. 1912.
We would like to create a main floor laundry area in the kitchen to fit larger machines (we recently moved with our machines and they don't fit down the stairs). There is an existing plumbing stack where it will go, but ducting and electrical for the dryer will be needed. the duct would run approx. 5 feet to the backyard. The machines are stacked, so it is only about 4 foot square area, but we may want to create a more space effective area to include a built in pantry and storage area as part of the kitchen.
20 year old house. Eat in kitchen is approx. 20ft x15ft. Wood cupboards need replacing or refurbishing. Pine colour, but seems like a harder wood. Vinyl floor replaced 8 years ago, but splitting at join. Counter tops are laminate, replaced 8 years ago. All appliances need replacing, so possibility for a bit of restructuring. Central island with sink and dishwasher. Seems too small and too far from rest of kitchen. Light fixture large and dated, would prefer pot lights. Tile needed behind counter tops.
Kitchen needs an update without being too expensive. More interested in good, solid workmanship than the latest trend. Have never particularly liked granite for counter tops. Too unforgiving. Possibility of a partial upgrade as floor and counter tops have been replaced
We've ordered a new kitchen for our home in downtown Ottawa, and now need a number of things doing in the kitchen/dining room:
- removal of old kitchen
- removal of three small (non load bearing) walls, including making good the electrical outlets that are currently in them
- refinishing ceiling
- moving water and waste pipes to new location for dishwasher
- moving the outlet for the extractor fan to a new location (only by about three feet)
- laying new hardwood flooring
- relocation of a couple of light fittings in the ceiling
- installation of new kitchen
Really want this done before Christmas if possible. Please feel free to call or email if you have questions.

I require my kitchen and bathroom re-done from top to bottom. The kitchen is 15' by 8' and the bathroom 9.5' by 5'. Old tile, cupboards, damaged drywall, etc needs to be removed and new tile put down. Then I will get Ikea to design and install the kitchen. I then require you to come back and install tile, after the counters are installed. I will do the painting.
I am looking to redo my kitchen and bathroom. I live in a condo and my kitchen is a square is in the corner of my living room blocked off by walls.
1. Tear down the walls between my living room and kitchen and keep a small island. (moving the current over-top cabinets down and adding laminate)
1. Remove back splash tiling and replace with newer style tiles. (about 1.5 x 10 feet)
2. Remove sink, add stainless steel sink and new faucet.
3. Remove laminate counter top and replace with more modern style laminate. (about 4x2 feet and 6x2 feet)
1. Remove laminate counter top and replace with more modern style laminate. (4x2 feet)
2. Remove sink, add stainless steel sink and new faucet.
3. Remove shower tiles and replace with larger style modern tiles.
Recently purchased a home and considering renovating the Kitchen (approx 12X12) and an Ensuite (approx 8 X 10).
Kitchen Reno would potentially involve wall removal and relocations of plumbing and electrical. Ensuite Reno would potentially involve moving the toilet and converting the bathtub to a shower stall (tile).
Looking for design ideas for both projects.
I would like to replace all the water pipes underneath the sink with new pipes. The pipes are old and wore and random leaks occur.
I also would like to replace the existing laminate countertop with something more stylish and durable. I would like Simplicity or Corian. I also need a new double sink and taps. I would like the countertop and sink to be one piece so that the seams are few and inconspicuous (eg. using a Simplicity sink which creates an uninterrupted countertop that won't catch crumbs or dirt). I need a new backsplash that is a coved backsplash which is a seamless continuation of the countertop material, with a gently curved transition between countertop and backsplash.
If there is any money left or depending how much it would cost, I would also like the floor tiles replaced.
I would like 2 estimates. One estimate for just labour and the second estimate with labour and materials, similar to the materials I have described.
We're looking to remodel the kitchen island of our new home as well as replace the existing backsplash.
What we're looking for:
- Repurpose kitchen island to remove second level, making it all one-level, counter height, with overhang for stools
- Install new white granite counter top to match existing style of black pressed-leather granite
- Rough kitchen island dimensions: 90"x38"
- Redo kitchen backsplash with white subway tile, remove existing wooden backsplash
PLEASE NOTE: We do not take posession of home until June 1st, and are unable to schedule a site visit until then. We are looking for the work to do be as soon as we take posession. Please provide estimates based on photos.
My kitchen needs a facelift to help with the sale of my home.
Nothing fancy, just functional and up-to-date.
The job involves removal and replacement of existing cupboards, countertop, sink, hood fan, vinyl flooring and baseboards, plus painting of walls and ceiling. If budget permits, installation of a backsplash and/or replacement of light fixture above sink.
No changes to electrical configuration required. Only change to plumbing involves moving sink and faucet so they are centred in front of the window (a shift of approx one foot).
Kitchen is a square (approx 12' x 12') with counter and lower cupboards around two walls and wall cupboards around one. Single large window above sink. Existing hood fan vents directly outside.
I have a Direct Buy membership, so materials can be purchased at a discount. I need the work to be completed in order to list my home in mid-March.
Wall #1: Remove part of a wall (approx 4.5 foot wall) where stove is currently and where, on the other side of the wall (living room/dining room), there is a propane fireplace. We will be wanting to install wood fireplace on another wall in the living room afterwards.
Kitchen Wall #2: Reconfigure one wall of floor cabinets (currently cabinets/counter curve into the kitchen - we want the counter/cabinets on that wall to go straight against the wall and extended by a few feet. On this wall, we would like to install a double sink (currently has only one sink) & we will leave the dishwasher in its present location on that same wall).
Wall #3: This wall has the fridge and some cabinets (approximately 5 foot wall) - to be taken down and fridge and cabinets to be reinstalled a few feet back (behind this wall currently is a pantry space). Once all this work is done, we will have room to install a kitchen island. We are thinking of having a gas range on the island - there is a propane line close by (from Wall #1 where propane fireplace currently is). We are not yet sure where we would install the oven.
We would like to be guided to do as much of the work as possible but would like to work closely with an experienced contractor who could guide us and also do the jobs best left to professionals as we go along. We are hoping to save as much money as we can by doing what we can ourselves, including salvaging and refinishing the current cabinets, possibly building the island ourselves, doing demo work and cleanup, etc.) We are hoping to start this renovation after the Christmas holidays (Jan/Feb 2016).
1. Looking for a contractor to take care of the removal of a load bearing wall by installing jackposts and a beam to open up the kitchen to the living room dining room.
I am able to do all the prep work of removing the drywall, electrical and the non load bearing walls as well as assist in the framing work to install the beam, posts and support below the floor.
Pictures available put for some reason will not upload to this site (all properties meet their requirements)
To begin end of Jan 2012.

We live in a suburban flat and we are planning on renovating our kitchen. It is approximately 20 years old, fairly small at just around 10 m2. We'd need to remove all kitchen appliances and change the tiles as well as the floor. We were thinking of panting the walls also.
As we will have new kitchen appliances, our contemporary wooden structures will not fit also, so we'd need a professional advice on how to design the kitchen according to the modern standards.
My existing kitchen needs to be demolished and to start from scratch with new kitchen. The kitchen has two openings (north and south walls), one regular door way and a double doorway on the opposite end. One window on the east wall. The kitchen measures approx. 11.5 x 12.5. The house is 111 years old. My preferred materials are probably natural stone or quartz for the countertops and natural stone for the flooring. Plenty of cabinets, not custom however no objection to having some semi-custom. The ceilings are 12ft high. I would like to work with existing layout without removing any main walls - east, north, south or west. However an air vent in north wall needs to be reworked/moved. I require a gas stove. The house is heated by gas. Plumbing and electrical will most likely have to be moved and reworked.
Would like to move cabinets over 4-6 inches to make room for a 36 inch wide refrigerator and to hook up a water line. Current fridge is 31 inches wide. There is a bulkhead where the washing machine is and water could be directed from this line to the refrigerator. The condominium is in 234 Rideau. Cabinets are brand new. Can send picture.
Two options to fit fridge in:
1. Move all cabinets/counters over 4-6 inches
2. Remodel over fridge cabinet and counter with cabinet to fit the fridge. Counter is granite and would need to be cut.
Hope you can help me. Thanks.
I want to remove part of a structural/supporting wall and build a kitchen island. The cabinetry will be from Ikea to match the rest of the kitchen. Depending on costs, I might also want a new backsplash and/or floor. There will be some electrical work to move outlets and light switches. There's a heating vent in the wall that will have to come out through diffusers under the island cabinets.
Kitchen is in back of house (house built in early 70's) condo so can't change exterior by expanding size of kitchen.
Original countertops are still is place and need to be replaced
Lack of storage space for large kitchen items
A cupboard was taken out and now has exposed pipes that needs to be hidden
kitchen is large enough for a round table with 4 chairs
L shaped kitchen - approx. 10 x 10 (or smaller)
Large back door and window facing east allows for light
Would like to redo all kitchen cupboards(13 upper cupboard doors, 3 lower cupboard doors), backsplash ceramic tiles and put in breakfast bar with stools instead of kitchen table, more storage space for food and kitchenware (a coat closet was turned into a storage cuboard but was not built to be fully functionable)
fridge, stove and diswasher are within a triangle work area but still feels like it doesn't work well
We would like to renovate our approx. 10' x 13' kitchen, and are looking for an experienced contractor to manage the project for us. Our house is a 1960-built bungalow (believe it's a Campeau).
The project involves removal of a wall to open the kitchen to the surrounding L-shaped living/dining area, new cabinets (not necessarily custom-built) and countertops, slate flooring, installation of a hood fan and window replacement - more or less a complete overhaul. We have a design in mind and are eager to complete this fall.
