Another Basement Renovation Started

Another Day Another Basement,

Just shy of a week ago we have started on another Basement Finishing Job in Kanata and I thought I’d keep everyone posted on the progress of this job.

First thing first. In Every project, there’s going to be a little surprise. In this one we were hoping to bring all of our subfloor system thru the large windows, but just as we brought the materials on site, we found that, Oops only one window out of two can be taken out of the frame and… Well, Kyle and Eddy had to take 25 sheets of 5/8 OSB down the very tight stairs. Well that took some extra time, but by the time they were done, we were up and running again making some good progress.

We did:

Subfloor using Platon system.

Plumbing was rerouted. That required opening of concrete floor, removal of waste, plumbing relocation and installation of brand new plumbing for future 3pc basement washroom. As always my faithful John The Plumber came down and completed the project int he most professional manner.

We closed the opened concrete floor and ready for Shower, Toilet and Vanity to come in.

All walls were installed.

All bulkheads installed.

Friday Dave the Electrician came on site and started running wires.

Here are some photos of the work in process.

Monday is on it’s way and we’ll continue finishing this project. The home owners are happy, they are very nice people and we’re looking forward to finishing the project soon and giving them a little “surprise”

And just as a special Thank You to my crew and in particular to Kyle and Eddy I want to note how clean the site is. They religiously clean the site every day before they leave.

June 12 2011 Update:

As you know we’ve started on a new project to finish the basement in Kanata on June 1.

This is an update to the Kanata Basement Renovation, Kanata Basement finishing post.

Job is progressing well and this past week we had Dario the Drywall Guy to come in and start on our drywall part of the Basement Renovation. It well very well and by Friday afternoon our Basement Renovation project was all drywalled and taped with some palaces receiving a first coat of drywall mud. Way to go Dario…

    Kitchens are complex renovation projects and often require a significant investment. Needless to say, a successful custom kitchen renovation adds tremendous value to your Ottawa home. Based on our experience installing kitchens in Ottawa, your preparation work, which would include walls, flooring, electrical, and some plumbing for an average size kitchen start from about $10,000. Your kitchen cabinets for an average size kitchen usually would start from about the same amount of $10,000. There are exceptions to this. We have installed many kitchens in basement apartments that cost less. The best thing is to reach out to us to discuss your project in detail. Below you will see some before and after pictures of kitchen renovations. We have also provided short descriptions of what was done and rough costs of the projects.

    To ensure the ease of the process for you and us, we remove the stress of all the supporting materials selection and simply leave it up to you to choose your finish materials. Even with that, help is available if you need to choose the right style of the cabinets or the functionality that will meet your needs. We can help you design your kitchen cabinets, or you can use one of many kitchen companies that will design and sell the kitchen cabinets to you. Perhaps you have already designed and purchased the cabinets and installation of them, such as the Ikea kitchen cabinet, and simply need to prepare the space for your new kitchen. We offer complete and partial kitchen renovation services, where you can have us handle the entire project, or we can do a partial preparation for your kitchen and a kitchen manufacturer will come in to install kitchen cabinets.

    At Miracle Dream Homes (MDH), we have been renovating, remodeling, and redesigning bathrooms and kitchens, and finishing basements in the Ottawa area since 2004. Our experience ranges from updating older homes to restyling newer ones, renovating for aging-in-place requirements, expanding smaller spaces for greater convenience and comfort, personalizing home designs and layouts, and much more.

    Save On Your Renovation

    It takes about 10,000 hours of practice to master a skill. Tradespersons such as plumbers and electricians, when going through an apprenticeship program, take at least 5 years or 8,280 hours before they are fully ready to start working on their own. DIY enthusiasts often feel excited about projects such as bathroom renovations, kitchen remodels and basement renovations. Of course, it is exciting to think of a home makeover! However, it’s important to know that whether you renovate your bathroom, basement or kitchen, getting professional help will not only save you time but potentially thousands of dollars.
