My mother is 83 years old and lives alone in a small two bedroom home in Thunder Bay that was affected by the sewer back up in May. Her basement has been cleaned and dried, but now she needs to have it returned to a functioning area. The basement was divided into three main areas: a bedroom with an attached bathroom (sink and toilet), a recreation room and the laundry/furnace area. I am not sure about square footage, but I would guesstimate it at 600-700 sq feet. The house was probably built in the 1950s.
The studs and wiring are all still present in the basement, but she needs to have the following work done:
a. drywall and insulation
b. flooring preferable with a sub-floor
c. bathroom with fixtures
d. replace stairs--landing was affected by water, but she wants to completely replace all the stairs into the basement
e. add storage shelving under the stairs--this would replace two large cupboards she used that were destroyed in the flood
f. rebuild closet with shelves in bedroom
g. check electrical wiring
She is dealing with her insurance company who has talked to her about a settlement. She would need to know what she should be expecting from the insurance company to cover these costs including labour. If someone want to inspect the home prior to presenting a price quote, that can be arranged.
Wanting to build possible two bedrooms and on bathroom to the attic of my house. There is no staircase or anything up there as of right now. Needing more space in the house. I believe the square footage would be around 900. The age of the house is earlier than the 1950s. All of the houses in this area have bedrooms in the attic.
I am looking to complete my basement and turn it into a rental unit that includes one bedroom, one bathroom, living area, kitchen, and a shared laundry facility. As storage is spare, I would also like some built in closets that would be separate from the rental unit. My uncle has drawen up some tentative plans. The house is 1080sq ft and is currently at the point of only being insulated. The laundry only has water hook ups but is currently draining to the main floor drain in the middle of the basement. Electrical and plumbing will be needed.
The house is less than 900sq feet. We would like to add a full bathroom to the basement and change the overall direction of the rooms. Presently it is a partially completed basement with a small cubic laundry room accompanied by 2 long rooms running lengthwise the length of the house. We would like to keep 1 of the rooms running lengthwise (but that is not set in stone if design does not warrant it), then change the other long room into 3 new rooms (1 bathroom, 1 laundry room, 1 furnace/storage room), with doorways to the long room. We also need insulation on the outer walls as the house is quite old (built in the 1920's) and gets uncomfortably cold in the winter. We will also need upgraded electrical as although the panel has been updated the wiring was not. The ceiling is presently tiled but we would prefer soundproofing and drywalling it, and installing pot lights.
sq.ft. 12 x 7, bathroom needs to be gutted and requires sheet-rock, flooring, move toilet and plumbing, install fan and fixtures. The electrical work will be upgraded and complete prior to renos.
House is 70 yrs old. The bathroom has paneling in the shower area. There is mold on the paneling.
The linoleum at the edges of the tub is rotting.
Owner will buy vanity, toilet, shower stall. Owner will buy window and have it installed.
My house is 50 plus yrs and needs a lift as the kitchen floor is slanted and the bedroom floor is heaving! I need the house to be lifted and leveled! It has a small and low crawl space and the house is a 695 sq foot dollhouse! Please tell me what us fully involved with this must do! I just want my floors straight!
I was interested in getting a quote for a garage repair/update.
The garage is currently below grade with a foundation that's in rough shape. It would need to be lifted to do work on the foundation and have new concrete poured. It currently has an old single car garage door. I'd be interested in re-framing it to fit a double car garage door. One new man door and one window. Besides that I'm just looking to make sure it's structurally sound and have any signs of rot taken care of.
Thanks for your time.
The sill plate on cement foundation needs to be replaced. There is siding and insulation on top of stucco. To determine what needs to be replaced the stucco needs to be cut at 12" around exterior to determine what all needs to be replaced. Then the stucco needs to be strapped, 2" rigid insulation, house wrap, new attic vents, build out and recap all doors and windows, put a removable cap over electrical mast and remove existing gable fascia and add new.
I have a 800 sq ft house on posts. I need the house lifted a footing poured and a 5' support wall constructed on the footing and then house lowered back down on the support wall. I have drawings which a local firm has done for the project and a permit for the project. I would like a quote on the work - o realize it is late in the season but if the work could be scheduled for spring 2018 that would be great
Replace and reinforce supporting beam in basement of house. Repaint exterior of house. Construct and paint new porch. Cut back trees.
I am considering purchasing a house that needs substantial renovation work. Prior to putting in an offer, I need to obtain estimates to get a realistic idea of what work needs to be done, how long it will take, and the price of same. Time is of the essence. Thanks.

I need my small house raised 1-2 ft as it is crooked and floors are all crooked. I want a small crawl space done properly but am seriously on a budget. Single woman and am lost as to what and how to do this and if it can even be done. The house is right on the ground and has a very tiny crawl space. I dont want it till next yr 2016. My roof was done and it looks awful :( I was taken...where is Mike Holmes when I need him?
I would like to have a cost estimate to fix some leaky plumbing in a bathroom wall, have an outdoor railing installed for concrete steps, have a partial basement wall removed, another basement wall to have an opening covered (approx. 2.5 feet X 4 feet), have a gas dryer hooked up to the gas line, and a few other minor things if the price is ok.
The house is an approximately 35 year old duplex with an upstairs, main floor and basement. The furnace and water heater are both natural gas, the wiring is cooper, the pipes are copper and the septic pipes are PVC. The foundation is poured concrete. It is wood frame, bottom half is brick and the upper half is wood siding. Interior is painted drywall.
Also, I would like to have an energy audit and some advice to improve the efficiency of the house.
Thanks for your time.
I started a wall demolition and ran into a problem. I am removing part of the seperating my kitchen and dining room... Simple enough, I am only extending the existing opening. Until I got the drywall off and realized that there is ducting running up the wall into my spare room upstairs. I am not equiped to deal with ducting. Please help. I am not sure that the wall can even be removed now.
