I'm looking for ballpark estimates. Please don't send a generic reply without an estimate.
There's currently a back addition about 8 x 8 that's in bad shape. The basement (unfinished) is dug out beneath it already. We'd like to knock it down and replace it with an addition the full width of the house (about 18'), and put in a powder room and mud room, with patio doors out to the yard. We'll renovate the kitchen (which is at the back) at the same time. We already have new appliances (which can stay where they are) and new wiring, but we'll need cupboards, counter, and probably flooring.
Two options for the second floor are 1) a deck on the roof of the addition, which would require a bedroom window to be converted to a door, or 2) a second floor extension to the bedroom over about 10' of the width, and a smaller deck over the rest. With Option 2 we'd get new hardwood for the bedroom and hallway.
I'd also love there to be something like a built-in shed accessible from the yard for storing bikes, lawnmower, etc. I'm thinking it could be fit in at ground level under/beside the mudroom. The first floor is up 5 steps from the ground.
We'd do some of the less specialized jobs like painting and installing cupboards and finishes ourselves. Materials should be good quality (solid wood cupboards, ceramic or stone tile), but nothing too flashy or trendy.
What's a ballpark estimate for each option?
2 story addition, 15' x16', onto existing 1950's rear basement one story 8' x12' addition. Main house is over 100 years old.

A similar sized project on the house next door although the main addition to the front of the existing house.
We have a 70 year old 2 storey brick house average 700 sq ft per floor. There is a fully finished basement. We would like to add a 2 storey addition at the back with 200 sq ft per floor and possibly an attic of the same size. For the main floor addition, we would like to move the kitchen to the back with a 2 piece powder room. We would like to have a master bedroom on the second storey, and for the potential attic, we would like a multipurpose room such as a guest room/office/storage. The constructions of all the homes on the same street are similar, and a majority of them have already had one or two storey extension added on to it. We would like to see how affordable, how long would it take, and what arrangement s need to be made with daily living during construction, and schedule the project. Please give us an online estimate if possible, and pls contact me if more information is needed.

I want to add second floor on my existing brick house in Toronto. Addition will have 3 bedrooms and 4 windows. Dimensions of the house are 25x26.8 ft.

Hi. We have a house on a 60ft by 120ft lots. We like to add 2nd floor and build a detach double garage with second floor attach to the mainhouse. Would this be cheaper than knocking it down and building the house from scratch?
I would need if doing the renovation
1) designer and permit form
3) frame builder
I am looking for online estimates only.
This is a fully renovated brick bungalow (main floor and basement have been renovated 1 year ago). Age is about 30-50 yrs old. I would like to add a 2nd storey addition comprising of 2 large bedrooms and a 4pc bathroom. The approximate footprint is about 1000 sq ft.
I prefer the 2nd floor addition to be of brick materials and hardwood flooring throughout except for the 4 pc bathroom. Enery efficient windows to be included. We need to construct a staircase from the main floor to the 2nd floor.
Currently the house sits as a storey and a half. We only have two dormers and with four people would like to have four bedrooms, two baths and laundry on the top. The main floor will need to be totally renovated to include a new kitchen with a walkout to a deck etc. The basement will also be included with a added bathroom and perhaps a second kitchen. We would require drawsing/plans.
We currently live in a bungalow with 3 bedrooms and a 300sq. foot addition in the back. We would like to add a second floor consisting of 5 bedrooms and 3 washrooms. We would also like to turn the 300 sq. foot room into a kitchen. We would open up the main floor and change the layout to be a dining room, family room and study. We would need stairs added to get upstairs. The current house is approx. 1600 sq. feet and assuming the addition would also be 1600 sq. feet.
How much would it cost for new kitchen, reworking original house with knocking down walls and replacing the hardwood floor, adding stairs and a second story with 5 bedrooms and 3 washrooms.
Thank you in advance!
We are considering building a two-story addition onto a two-story, vinyl siding house. The addition will be 10 feet by 15 feet (approximately). The bottom floor will be attached to the kitchen and contain a family room; the upper floor will be a new master bedroom. We are in the very early stages of our planning and are trying to get an idea of price range before deciding whether it is worth the investment.
We are a prospective buyer and are considering making an offer on a semi-detached home. We would only purchase the home if our budget enabled us to add a two-story addition (to the main floor and upper floor). We would leave the basement untouched. Note that the neighbor has an extension, so one exterior wall is already built.
Main Floor Addition - We would want to rework the whole main floor. The current kitchen would get extended into the addition. The living room would get extended into the addition. We would add a powder room in the addition. We would like nicer finishings and a modern kitchen (new appliances). We are approximating that the addition would be 250 square feet.
Second Floor Addition - Currently the upstairs has a master bedroom and a second bedroom, and a bathroom. We would want to add two bedrooms, and an ensuite bathroom onto the master. This would involve reworking the layout upstairs. We are approximating that the addition would be 250 square feet.
We would be so appreciative if someone could give us a rough ballpark on pricing and timing for a project like this. We understand that this is likely a more complicated and pricier addition, so understand that will be factored into estimates.
Thank you in advance!
We're looking to expand our living space through a three-storey extension to our 2 bedroom house.
We're anticipating a total max square footage of approx 650 sqf (16' * 13' * 3).
2nd flr: Bedroom
Gnd flr: Kitchen* + Den
Bsmt: Rec Room
Construction: Foundation, Dry-wall, Vinyl siding, roof, flooring
Mechanics: Plumbing, electrics, gas
*Note. Kitchen cabinetry and installation not required in this estimate.
This project includes stripping, framing and preping hvac/plumbing on a third floor addition. The new floor is about 15 by 40 feet. It needs to be completed to 'rough in' state, (we will finish the interior). This project is city approved and all drawings are available.
The existing house is a brick house backing on a ravine with the basement walkout to the backyard. The addition is 16x6 feet to be added to the back of the house and will be 2 storeys high, from the basement to the main floor. From the 2nd floor, the addition would serve as a deck from the Master bdrm. From the basement, the addition will have 4 windows and a pair of french doors. From the main floor, the addition will have 6 windows.
Foundations need to be about 4 feet deep since the back of the basement is above ground. The outside of the addition is aluminum siding. The walls to the existing house facing the addition would need to be taken down to accomodate the expansion.
There is a structure on the back of my house which I call "the Shanty' ... but it is only good as a wind barrier to the back wall. It needs to come down. I have plans to rebuild and add a deck on top. It is only about 12ft x 12ft.
This project won't happen till the spring. I hope that who ever helps me with my bathroom might become my go-to guy. Please look at that project for now.
More to come on this one.
