Approximate Remodeling Costs Of Older Homes
Note: These costs are only approximate, and should be used as a budgeting tool only. There are many factors that change the price of a project. Every remodeling project is unique, as is the cost of having it completed.
Basic Powder Room Remodel
– $12,000 and up
A basic powder room remodel includes replacing all plumbing fixtures to existing copper pipes, installing new tile on the floor, replacing the toilet with a comfort-height toilet, replacing the vanity with a pedestal sink and installing a new mirror or medicine cabinet.
Complete Hall Bathroom Remodel
– $20,000 and up
Because Carosella Design Build works on older homes as well as new ones, it is both common and recommended that the old galvanized and lead pipes be upgraded to copper and ABS. We also “highly” recommend that a good exhaust fan be installed in the ceiling and exit to the outside (not into the attic). Common requests include retiling the bath and adding a 42″ wainscot, tile on the walls, new vanity, granite counter, sink and faucet.
Complete Master Bathroom Remodel
– $30,000 and up
Today’s affluent homeowners are looking for spaces to relax in, including whirlpool tubs, frameless glass showers, full-tiled showers, linen cabinets, comfort-height toilets, and granite counters. Often, we will replace the window and move the plumbing and fixtures around to make better use of the limited space. All this, as well as the above work, is included in the Complete Master Bathroom Remodel.
Basic Kitchen Remodel
– $30,000 and up
If your kitchen was remodeled relatively recently, so that the plumbing and electrical are up to building code, AND the cabinet configuration and appliance location is okay, then we can remove and replace the cabinets, countertops, flooring and any other finishes and replace them with all new products in the same location. Sometimes we will “discover” a good looking wood floor under the existing linoleum if yours is an older home.
Complete Kitchen Remodel
– $45,000 and up
If your kitchen has not been upgraded in a long time, or was not remodeled properly, then you will probably need to upgrade your electrical service, install new plumbing, and install an exhaust vent system. It is also quite possible that a considerable amount of work may be necessary to finish the floors, walls and ceilings. Often with a complete kitchen we will relocate the appliances and even move structural walls to create the best possible kitchen configuration for your home.
– $30,000 and up
In older homes, this work often requires bringing your electrical system, plumbing, and heat up to code or at least improved and maintenance free. Once we have removed the unnecessary walls, rerouted and repaired the mechanical systems, then we can create for you anything from a luxurious master suite, home entertainment center, workout room, family room, rec room or additional bedrooms. Check with us to see how your basement can be transformed into a well lit and comfortable addition to your home. We can install basement access/egress windows or walk out stairs.
– $35,000 and up
Unfinished second or third stories are a great, inexpensive way to add a spare bedroom, playroom, or office to your house, especially in Cape Cod style homes. We can raise a portion of the roof with a shed or gable dormer, giving you additional square footage. This work would include cleaning up the existing space, framing new walls, and electrical work, insulating, drywall, and painting. To finish the room, carpet is installed on the stairs and floor to muffle noise to the occupants below. Ceilings usually are sloped to allow for greater square footage upstairs. A through-the-wall heat pump/AC unit normally provides plenty of cooling and heating to make the entire room comfortable year-round.
– $250 per square foot and up
Carosella Design Build has received some prestigious awards and created impressive changes to our clients’ homes over the years for design and construction of additions. Whether it be a small backyard addition or a full second-story, we are capable of creating for you the space and environment you want and need.
Whole House Renovations
– $100 per square foot and up
Every so often we meet someone who has purchased a great house in a great neighborhood that needs significant work to turn it into a home they want to live in. There are many factors to consider when pursuing this type of project and it is recommended that you not start any work without a “master plan” for the entire home.
– $50 to $175 per square foot
In the summer months, we are asked to build a few decks and or patio covers. We take great pride in the quality of our deck construction. We use only the best materials installed in the best way to produce for you a deck that will last for many years. Whether it’s a composite or natural wood deck our detail and craftsmanship will provide you years of enjoyment.
Small Jobs: Time & Materials (T&M)
– $75/MH + materials
When the scope of work cannot be clearly defined, it makes sense for both the home owner and Carosella Design Build to proceed with a Time & Materials agreement (T&M) which protects both parties. Only the actual cost of the work is billed to the client. This also works well for small jobs (less than one day in duration).
