I am at the beginning of a renovation project for a residential property in Toronto (west-end near high park). It is a 90 year old detached, ravine lot house. Our closing date is the end of May. We have have drawings from an interior architect and are getting engineering drawings and permits. In summary, the kitchen needs to be gutted; however, we already have our appliances, countertops, and cabinets picked and contracted out separately. The project will include the demolition, construction, changing the back window and door, floor matching, ceiling matching, power, and installation of a new fireplace/mantel/stone surround.
Could you provide an estimate of the costs for labour/installation and the alloted time needed for the items below.
1. Demolition: removal of ground floor walls, gas fireplace and kitchen cabinetry
2. *New structural supports: beams that coincide with the proposed design layout (i.e. support beams might need to be re-located if they interfere with the placement of the kitchen island). Support beams will need to be supplied by contractor. WAITING for ENGINEER DRAWINGS.**
3. *Framing, drywall, taping for new walls that are enclosing foyer. Wall patching where old door frames existed.
4. Finish carpentry: trim work for ground floor and door casing (wide with paneling) for entry from foyer
5. Prepping, supporting, and framing for the installation of new rear window and back door (including removing old sliding door and closing that space off- exterior brick work). The new window will span 11 feet and we would like the brick from the excavation to be used to fill in the area where the old sliding door existed.
6. Floors: the existing floors are oak and we would like to maintain them. Depending on the contractor's costs for sanding, matching, and re-finishing the floors, it might be more effective to remove and install brand new flooring. Could you price both options for comparison? Note: flooring will be provided by owners so estimate should include only labour and installation.
7. *Ceilings will need to be consistent in the space. Dry wall, taping, etc.
8. Lighting and Wiring*: new outlets in the kitchen and cable connection in the kitchen and family room. Installation of pot-lights (through out the space) and hanging lights (foyer, over the island, dining room).
9. *HVAC work: the chimney will need to be relocate to the side of the house and also connected to the new gas fireplace (we have a high efficiency forced air system)
10. Fireplace install and venting*.
11. Tiling the backsplash.
12. Installing the kitchen sink and faucet.
13. Installing the cabinetry for the kitchen and closets (can your team do this?)
*Building, venting, wiring, electrical materials will need to be provided by the contractor.
** I understand that you might need to see the engieers plans before an accurate price is given here. However, a range of pricing would be greatly apppreciated, we realize this pricing might be subject to change depending on how complicated the new supports might be.
Below is a list of items that will be provided (by the owners) to the contractor for installation:
A. Structural drawings
B. Kitchen: custom cabinetry, countertops, sink, hardware, appliances
C. Custom 11 foot window
D. Door for the rear of the house
F. Flooring if need be
H. Lighting (pot-lights, hanging lights)
J. Custom closets
K. Tiles for backsplash

Complete interior gut of a semi-detached house 1500 sf (basement sf is not included) in northyork. full gut of basement + ground + second.
Also requires new kitchen on ground, 1 new washroom to 2nd floor. nothing in house is re-usable. may require re-routing of plumbing, drains, will need new elec. board, and re-wire.
Also needs new windows, possibly larger windows by cutting bricks, and addition of new sunroom to back of building.
Looking to renovate an 90yr old victorian rowhouse in annex area of Toronto. Two 2nd floor rooms (1 bathroom approx 10' x 5', and 1 laundry room approx 13' x 6') plus a landing which leads to both (approx 5' x 5'). Collectively these areas constitute the entire back half of the house, which is covered by a (new) flat roof that has a deck on it. The walls and roof will need to be reinforced from the inside to ensure they are sufficiently strong to hold a hot tub that I may put on the deck at some point in future (along with the deck that is already there). As well, the floor of this area will have to be levelled (i expect the joists will have to be sistered), as it has an approximate 7 inch slope over it's approx 12' length. I may wish as well to have a new ceiling put in the 1st floor room that is under this 2nd floor area to be renovated. So the job is basically 2 rooms, the landing and the structural reinforcements/new insulation.
I'm not looking to relocate any fixtures in the bathroom, so I don't expect that any major plumbing will be required there. However some plumbing work may be required in the laundry room as I may wish to relocate the washing machine. Plus I will want to get water and hydro up to the deck.
I'm looking to use materials and finishes that match those which are in the front half of the 2nd floor of the house. Would like to salvage the existing moldings, they're originals. Will need light colored hardwood on the landing and in the laundry room (perhaps with tile where the washing machine is). Laundry room will need significant storage areas i.e. cupboards plus a closet. Bathroom will need full overhaul: new tub/shower, small vanity, medicine chest, toilet, light fixtures.
If possible, looking to have this done thru first 3 weeks of March.
Renovation of 2nd floor:
- turn the tiny guest room into a walk in closet (will need to tear down attached wall)
- gut the upstairs bathroom
- level and replace the hard wood floors
- possibly replace stair case to match new floors
If this is a job your company could take on, I would love to hear from you. I am looking for a company to begin this job August 8.
*If the job is done well, we are looking to re-do the kitchen shortly after!
*MUST LIKE DOGS
I would like to request for an estmate, possibly from 5 different contractors as my mortgage agent needs to know how much it will cost to renovate my unit.
The main concern is the kitchen and the floors then the washrooms. My kitchen has to be changed, my floors were stained five years ago but it didn't dry properly before my furnitures moved in, so my floor is blotched everywhere. We are looking to use laminate floors on the three bedroom and the living room, and the kitchen and washroom floors has to be changed as well as we have some ugly vinyl. We also would like to change our cabinet sliding doors to frosted glass and have our closet renovated a little bit hopefully with half shelves and half hanging area (not a walk-in). We want to remodel our 1 and a half bathrooms, too. We currently have blinds for our windows and we'd like to change them with double curtain rods so we can use regular curtains.
Pretty much this is it for now but we'd appreciate an honest quote with honest contractors who are proud of their jobs and will make our place a greater place to live in. Also, would you consider letting my husband help as he is very handy and hardworking. He has done a bit of construction work before and would like to get involved to save part of the cost. So, he'd be one of the assistants.

Property lot is approx. 100*30
Currently bungalow is 900 sq ft and looking for an additional 2nd floor
Looking to redo the outside, give the house a newer look with either brick and/or stucco. Would like to learn the following options if you can support us:
Option 1: Design + Permits + Framing only without drywall, electrical, mechanical, plumbing etc.
We will need work required to complete the 2nd floor, including any structural reinforcements required + all exteriors (stucco on the outside and a stone facade on the front wall of the house).
Option 2: This is #1 with drywall, electrical, mechanical, plumbing etc. till the point it will clear inspection satisfactorily.
So basically what is left for us to do is floors, moulding and all cosmetic interior stuff including kitchens and washrooms.
Option 3: This is #2 + complete interior renovation the complete end to end job.
In the event you are chosen we will share picture of the project and current state for better understanding of the project.

The house is currently is a small, possibly 75 year old, west-facing, 2 storied detached home on a plot of 50 by 180 lot. It is in Scarborough area in the vicinity of University of Toronto. The current built up area is about 1400 1500 sft excluding basement.
The features of the current home are as follows:
- Main floor has a living room, small dining area, kitchen, powder room
- Second floor has 4 small bedrooms and one washroom
- Basement has a 1 bedroom, small room, living area, and kitchen. Bath was added although the placement is in the rear and have to pass through kitchen, utility area and stacked laundry area to access it; Low celling height; Entrance is separate but entry is first into a common entrance space that houses another stacked laundry added few years ago and the power room
- Basement is dry
- The dining area opens into a rear deck area through a patio door and a deep lot in the rear (East)
- Single garage attached to the house to its left (south) with no direct access into the home. No built-up area above the garage
- Exterior is brick for ground floor and aluminum siding for the second floor
Desirable features by additions and renovations:
On ground floor

- If possible laundry on second floor

If additional excavation is expensive and not possible, then just limit to internal change in layout and renovation. Upgrade bath as may be required
- Covert the entire house to brick
- 2 car garage may need to bring the garage to front of the house subject to zonal restrictions wrt frontage
