3 bedrooms House built in 1940's. Originally a wartime home, currently a 1250 sqft house, 25 x 25 and 2 storeys. We want an ADDITION with FOUNDATION (to serve as living room) on the back of the house, 25 by 14. So, we can convert the current living room into a bedroom needed for our 3rd child. We thought the addition should be 1 storey + use basement but also willing to do 2 storeys including new roof depending on estimate. Entire House needs to be RE-WRAPPED and VINYL SIDING done as well. Need ALL WINDOWS and exterior doors replaced. 4 Windows upstairs need to be enlarged (original glass pane sliders) before summer. Main floor has 3 new windows (again some enlarged), basement 3 new windows, and addition requires many windows and french doors. We want to re-do WEEPING TILES and plumbing for basement (partially finished). Increase to a 200 AMP SERVICE and add PIGGY BACK PANEL in our workshop shed (we plan to rebuild it on the current slab). Front part of yard needs to be graded (remove roots from previous maple tree) YARD needs to be FENCED entirely (65 x 110 lot) Front picket and gate to access back for boat/trailer. Build a NEW AWNING to make front porch covered. We will be recycling our 25 x 12 deck to the new addition but will require help to rebuild the rest to accommodate our 24 foot pool. Our future plans must include new PLUMBING AND ELECTRICAL for kitchen (we have install of that covered) and new plumbing for basement WASHROOM/LAUNDRY (I will re-finish basement). We also want to consider upgrading our oil converted electric FURNACE. It is working but looking for better efficiency. There's a lot to do here and we are hoping to have much of this done by the September 2013 so life can resume and get back to normal for family.

I would like to convert a duplex I found in a triplex. The model is one that I can convert to a triplex and I need to find material as well as allot of informations to help me guide this projet.
This is my first and I would love to be able to do everything for less (financialy). I
I have some minor improvements that I would like to make to my condo.
1) I will have an air conditioner installed in my unit and will need a Master Electrician registered with the "Corporation des maitres lectriciens du Qubec" to verify the installation, produce an inspection report, and fill out a report with the "Rgie du Batiment du Qubec", as per our condo administration charter.
2) I will need to have several light switches changed (4-6) to more recent types, including a timer switch for the bathroom fan, and some custom models (wireless movement detection activated, designer touch switches etc.)
3) I will need to have my bathroom fan changed. My current unit is an 80's model, so the ceiling cavity will most likely need to be adjusted to fit a new unit. I live in the lowest unit, half-way underground, so there is no overhead access.
4) I will need to have my old thermostats (4) changed over to newer programmable models
5) I will need to have a few (2-3) wall-mounted lights installed in the living room. There is no access presently so drywall might need to be removed then reinstalled in this area (about 20ft x 8ft, minus door to bedroom). There is presently a light switch connected to a wall outlet that I would like to use for those lights.
6) I would like to have crown moulding installed in the living room/dining room/entrance to hide the path of the electrical wire from the air conditioning installation. The approximate dimensions of these rooms are (15ft x 12ft), (13ft x 9.5ft) and (8ft x 5ft)

The extension would be on the south-west side of the house while the carport would be on the west side and would include an new entrance to the west side of the house.
Moving the existing kitchen to the new dinning room is also an option in order to allow for larger living room.
