We have a fully finished basement between 450 - 650 square feet. We are hoping to turn it into a one bedroom or bachelor legal apartment. We would need to put in a full bathroom and kitchen. We need to make a separate entrance, as well would like to put in a separate hydro meter.Our house is only 10 years old. We also would like to move our laundry to our second storey (from the basement) but still have laundry in the basement for our tenants. We are first time home owners and are new to renovations. Any help/information/quotes would be greatly appreciated!
This job is mainly removing carpet and installing vinyl plank flooring in a hallway and two room in the basement. However in the office there are bookshelves that are on top of the carpet and they are attached to the wall, I see no screws so I think it is glued. It might be glued to studs and not drywall, so I may need drywall added as well.

I am looking to completely redo my finished basement in my split level detached home in Waterloo, making it more open concept and putting in at least one window (currently there are none). I am also considering moving the laundry from the basement onto the main floor. I would need assistance in designing the basement based on what is possible/not possible to do. In the basement there is currently a finished: hallway with closets, separate room. Unfinished: cold cellar, laundry room, furnace/storage room. Please contact me via email to schedule an appointment for a consult/price estimate.
We have a partially finished basement with rough-in for an additional washroom. We would like to have a one-piece shower stall installed in this area along with toilet, vanity, lighting and ventilation. We will need flooring done as well, either tile or suitable alternatives. The proposed bathroom has framing on one side, partial drywall on two sides and we will need framing & drywall to close out the room. There is easy access to electrical and water from the unfinished walls & ceiling - once this is done we'd like the ceiling finished with drywall as well. The house is in the Upper Beechwood area in Waterloo and it is approx 20 years old.
We are looking for a rough estimate online but would welcome you to visit the house in person on the weekend.
I want to give my sister in Waterloo the gift of help to finish a project that is too big for her. She is renovating the bathroom and rec room in her basement after gutting them to repair water leaks. The bathroom is to the point where it is time to install tile in the shower and backsplash for the sink, and then for fixtures and final finishing to be done. The rec room needs to have the walls finished, flooring, and I'm not sure what the situation is with the ceiling. Are you trustworthy, skilled and flexible enough to get into the middle of this and help us finish this?
Finish a ~500 sqft basement, including putting up walls for a bathroom and guest room, basic fixtures in the bathroom (rough-in is already there), flooring (it's concrete in good condition now), drywall, lighting, and electrical.
Ideally work would be substantially completed during the period Aug 13 - 22, but we have some flexibility.
It's a walk-out basement, so we want to have the potential (in the future) to rent out the basement as a separate unit. If there are any special things that need to be done (ceiling made of a different type of material, etc) that we should do now, that would be good to know.
House was built in 1999, no problems found with the basement during recent home inspection.
My basement is around 600 sf with walk-out. My original plan was do it all by myself and actually I am about to finish the whole framing and box work. I have purchased all interior doors and plan to buy wires/boxes/fixtures/switches etc in the near future. I would love to continue finishing the rest of the work howewer i realize this may take me a few more months (if not years) long. That's why I am here :)
Basically the basement would have a bathroom, a small study room and open area for recreation - again the framing is done. I am not looking for luxury reno but definitely quality work. Budget is another important factor in my consideration.
if you live in Waterloo, Kitchener or Cambridge,
and can finish the rest of my basement in 3 - 6 weeks' timeframe (June - July)
and can get the work done within $10k budget (labour+materials+others)
then please reply to me. Thanks!
We are in a 10 year old open concept home and we have a few projects in mind. The first project is to take the family room and close it into a den, including replacing the existing carpet with laminate flooring.
The preferred plan is to remove an oak railing that divides the kitchen from the family room, replace it with a wall and install a pocket door to close the room. This would require the building of about a 7 foot wall, using 2x6 studs.
This will also require some wiring work to be done to create a couple of new electrical outlets as well and possibly a phone jack.
Phase 2 would be to do counter renovations in kitchen, removing breakfast bar and associated cupboards and moving under counter dishwasher to a different location. A portion of existing counter top may need to be replaced.
Phase 3 would included the closing of a 6 foot wide opening from the kitchen to the great room with french doors (24 inch width).

I would like to have a contractor put in a rough-in bathroom and bedroom in an unfinished basement in an older home in Waterloo. The home is about 60 years old. The basement has three unfinished rooms in it, and is cement/concrete (no previous renovations). The house is in really good condition for its age and the basement is very dry with no water damage.
I would like just the skeleton wall of the bathroom put in and basic plumbing for a toilet, sink and shower/bath tub. I would like the washroom to go in the existing unfinished laundry room, where plumbing already exists. I would potentially like just the skeleton of the bedroom/closet to be put in as well in the largest room in the basement, the work for this will be minimal as it just needs one wall across the large room to create a hall way to the laundry room/bathroom with an opening for a door, and a rough in closet. I would like to do the rest by myself.
The dimensions of the basement are approximately as follows;
Main room; 10 ft 10 inches by 22 ft 4 inches, there is a door opening into the laundry room where I would like to install a bathroom as well along one of the 22 ft 4 inches walls
Laundry Room; 13 ft 11 inches by 10 ft
Electrical room: 7 ft 11 inches by 10 ft
If you could send me a rough price quote for the above work (quote for bathroom and bedroom separately), I would sincerely appreciate it. I really would like the rough-in washroom to be done but I may decide to do the bedroom for myself, depending on costs.
Hello, We have recently had a mould remediation company in to deal with some issues we had in the basement with mould. All the mould has been removed and we are now looking at having the needed repairs done. We would be looking at some dry walling, minor insulation, carpentry, new shower stall, kitchen sink install with painting throughout and minor cosmetics. We have been displaced due to the mould to the top floor of the house and are anxious to get the project started. Would you have time over the next couple weeks and be able to provide a quote so we know what we're looking at? Also we are really easy on scheduling, located in the Laurelwood area in Waterloo.
