I am looking to find a reliable contractor for a gut and renovation of the third floor residential space of a 3 storey brick commercial/retail building in downtown Toronto.
The building is 57 ft long and 22 ft wide. I will need someone to provide a solution for installing a beam and/or additional joists to support the roof with consideration for a roof top deck.
I have an interior desinger on the project who will provide the design options to be quoted.
The work will begin in August.
We will be going through the space on the evening of Monday June 11.
I am wondering approximatly how much it would cost to turn my attic into a very basic extra bedroom. I don't think I need a window and a nice ladder would be fine rather than a staircase. My house is in Toronto at Yonge and Eglinton. It was built in the 1940's and the floor area is about 1000 feet. There is enough space to stand up in the attic, I don't know if the beams need reinforcement or anything.
Looking to sell my house and my agent has asked I get a quote to provide new buyers.
I have an unfinished basement of approx. 700 sq and a height of 6 ft approx. I think I would need an additional 2-3 ft.
I'm looking to get a quote for dig down finish the basement with drywall and carpeting.
Please provide me the cost of digging/underpinning and finishing.
Basement is finished but needs to be updated and make better use of space. Would like to make the living area bigger by removing existing closets, opening stairs and making use of space in ajoining laundry room. Built in storage (roll out) under the stairs and rearranging laundry room will be necessary. Carpet and all wall covering will need to be removed and replaced.

I would like to turn my basement into an apartment.
It currently has 1 finished bedroom and bathroom and living space.
-a kitchen - plumbing for sink exists (need cabinets, sink, faucet, exhaust, fridge, dishwasher, oven)
-a wall and door to divide/separate the apartment from the rest of my house
-drywall an existing doorway
-create a doorway
And possibly sound proofing the ceiling.
Budget - $10k inclusive
The house is approx. 80 years old. There are several cracks in the floor due to the water shelf (as stated by inspector). The basement is divided into three rooms, the greater of the three having the w/d, furnace, etc. There are three newer windows. It would be preferable if one wall could be removed (at least partially) to provide a bedroom area. The third room would remain storage. Main concern is the floor condition and the height of the room (currently 6'7'' in main room, 6'5'' in planned sleeping area) which we would like to maximize. The walls are crumbling: one side is stucco, the other mortar. It does not appear if any renovations have been done to the basement.
Ideally we would like a main room, a sleeping area and a bathroom (sink, shower, toilet).

Hi I am looking for professional advice on how to proceed with a project.
At first I would like to know:
- what is the most cost efficient way to proceed with project
- approximate cost of a project.
-cost of design. Design to have drawings specifications etc.
-some sketch of how to build it.
Second step is to order the design if approximate cost in my budget.
Third step to find who can do the work.
Basement has number of low points that I want to get rid of. Joists spanning the basement are resting on top of the beams. These beams are the low points of the basement. I am thinking of having hidden beam built with joists but-fitted against the beam with hangers. That new beam would be sitting higher with the tops face of the beam flush with top face of the joists. Once beam is up, it creates a problem of utility duct routing. The idea is to move low-laying utilities ducts higher up. I made a drawing of current basement layout. Distance between walls are accurate. Locations of joists and utility ducts are approximate.
-I thought about few options of hvac duct rerouting.
-Have ducts go through holes in beams and joists
- re – route HVAC ducts to the attic above ground floor and come down next to the wall.
-change orientation of joists and reroute HVAC ducts by the outside wall.
I am attaching drawing of basement plus photo of beam as it looks now, and a picture of a new beam that I want to have. Info about the house. House is built around 1950-s. Location etobicoke. Basement is built from cinder blocks 8” wide. Joists are 2”x10” (Height 9.5”), beams are 9.5” high. That basement ceiling is load bearing and modifying it would require some temporary reinforcement.
From your experience please tell if it is possible to do that beam moving exercise. If it possible, then what is the best way to do that, and how much can it approximately cost?
