I currently have a basement entrance that was not installed properly and would like it removed and installed properly. The door installed has a industrial type frame that is cemented into the foundation without a thermal break, so it gets cold in the winter. Also the door is not level with the rest of basement floor. The entry area to the basement needs to be raised about 2" and retiled.
The house is a small bungalow built in 1951 with a cinder block foundation. The stairs outside leading to ground level are fine and the opening was underpinned.
Require a basement patio walkout preferably with finishings such as railing, some kind of finishing for the walls such as stucco or stone facing and a basic patio stone. Nothing fancy. This project requires a sump pump for drainage. Engineer drawings done and permit has already been issued. Looking around 50k with taxes in for budget.
Hello, my basement is about 650-700 square footage (approx). House was built in 1950.
The basement is partially finished, but needs an overhaul and have 2 rooms and a kitchen added as well as the bathroom which currently has a toilet and sink needs to be redone and a shower/tub and exhaust vent and fan added.
I also have some other work needed around the house: the shed has a hole in the roof, the backyard fence gate needs to be repaired and the upstairs washroom needs a exhaust vent and fan installed.
I'm free evenings and weekends to show the basement.

1200 square ft roof floor area roughly.
Looking to remove the trusses or what ever they are called (the piece which runs from middle of one side rafter to the middle of the other side rafter), which are making it hard to walk in the attic and supporting the roof o to the floor joists I guess.
While doing this I like to replace one of the rafters (a king of damaged and bit bent from previous problems) and one first jack rafter which is disconnected from the hip rafter for some reason.
I notice these problems were there for a long time and I don't see any emergency situation here.
This jack rafter disconnection may be because of the defects in the initial construction (like cutting the hip rafter a bit short and to make that up adding a slice of wood piece).

1) I want to repair the garage wall and the porch siding bricks. Pictures shows exactly what should be fixed. Can you please give me a quote for repair and availability?
2) Also, note that my asphalt driveway just front of the garage door has sunk a little bit and I look for a solution.
I may want to do both, depending on the price and contractor's interest.
Behind my garage there is a area that is 7 ft by 11ft. that is open to the elements. The entire area is under the overhang of the roof. There is an exit from the house into this area and another exit from the garage into this area. The project is to build a room in this area so that I can go from the house into the garage without going outside.
The garage ends 7ft before my house ends. My garage is 11ft wide. If I added 2 walls (one 7ft and the other 11ft) I would then have the garage line up with the back of the house. As there already is an exit out of the house and another entrance into the garage I would then be able to walk from the house to the garage. I spoke with the building inspection folks and I would need to put in a full foundation (no slabs) as I would be connecting to an existing structure.
I am retired and have done framing and finishing over the years. What I need is:
1) The foundation. Tried to figure it out for myself but it seems there are a huge number of ways of doing this and I need someone with expertise and capability to do the foundation work
2) Plans for the walls. Someone that would get the building permit.
I've attached a rough drawing of the project.
