The average cost for a home that size would be around $10,000, but there may be other factors that could increase the price, such as damages to the house that could be a risk. I would suggest contacting a demolition contractor to get a quote. Also, be sure to get several quotes so you can get the best price possible. http://www.honcdestruction.com/... more
If you are removing drywall then you should be able to do wet-spray insulation without much difficulty, but if you're not then you might want to go with a different option. You don't want to cause any damage to your walls if you're not replacing them. Renovation should be as quick as possible, and you don't want to back up the progress.
I will break the mold here and actually give you some useful information. I flip properties in addition to selling real estate. My go to guy for cabinets currently is http://nationwidekitchenandbath.com/. I have not found anyone recently that can beat his prices. I originally found him on craigslist interestingly enough. As for Don Beck. Good luck!... more
Hello. I have used them in long large bedrooms to divide space. They have served there purpose and did work. But keep in mind, they are not fixed and can move and may be safety issues depending on the age of people living in the house. Before we sold the house and relocated, we changed it back to the original state. However I have never used them for common living areas. In those areas I have made defined areas with furniture, carpets or a combination.
I hope this helps and if you need to ask more questions, please feel free to contact me at 813-545-5711.

Welcome to sunny Florida. If you are on the key, you will find that your costs will be more than on the main land. Your building materials selected should obviously match the current home, permits and code compliance is a must. I was a general contractor for years prior to getting into Real Estate. It was always our goal to carefully match the new construction to the existing, that way the materials blend and the addition doesn't stand alone. You are in a high wind load zone and need a professional contractor to do the job. The cheapest is usually not the best. Be sure to hire a pro. If you buy quality and maintain it, you will be happy for years to come. I would be happy to suggest several reputable builders. Visit our website.
Please, note that I am no longer a builder or inspector, but love selling Real Estate.

I did not read all of your responses, so this may be a duplication. I suggest enclosing the room while removing the wall between the new space and the existing space if this is possible. You will be incorporating the new space to enlarge the adjoining space preventing you from loosing the view. Depends on where the patio is located in relation to the room/rooms it is behind. With luck, they line up and you will wind up with a much larger family room.... more
I would suggest getting three estimates. Throw out the lowest and look at the other two for a careful, apple to apple, comparison. We have had success with several builders and remodelers in the area. Check out our website and look at the preferred vendor list. I have had several homes built for our family and have been very pleased.
Feel free to give me a call and I can refer others that have completed work for the property owners we work with. You may want to consider the cost of addition to the cost of relocation. In this market, you can get a lot of home for the money. It may cost less to sell your home and relocate to a larger home that meets your new needs. If you look at square footage pricing of recent sales, you will be amazed.
Here are a couple of ideas of how to get on vendor lists. 1. Drop off your business cards and other marketing materials to real estate offices, banks, and mortgage companies. 2. Go to the local Board of Realtors and become a business partner and go to business partner showcases and business card exchanges. These strategies will help get your name out there for the services that you provide.

It is our experience that most skilled trades people will want to bid on the entire remodel job as opposed to doing hourly work. Plan on a range of between $20 and $30 dollars per hour for anyone worth their salt. We would be happy to provide you with some recommendations from the local area.

You should have consulted your professionals first before closing on the loan. You can rest assured that your builder knows when they will get the first draw. Your contractor had to agree to the terms of his draws when he signed the deal with your lender..... more
