Toronto in the (gutted) House...

Hey everyone,

I am currently gutting my newly purchased semi-detach in Davisville Village in Toronto. I would like to do much of the work myself but understand that I should not take on any tough projects. I am half done demolition and I seem to be good at tearing off plaster, putting into pails and dumping it into a bin. Next, I'm going to install my furnace and redo my wiring (just joking).

I do have a bunch of questions and much of it has to do with soundproofing. I am also concerned about codes and not having to incur fines and tear down work I've done - which is why I won't be doing much myself. I do have a relative that is a tradesman but they are often busy and can only give advice sparingly.

So, I have to do the following work (and no - I'm not joking)

Re-frame to allow for larger openings and a larger washroom
New furnace and A/C (no A/C right now)
Change some of the venting
Re-wire (there was some knob & tube)
New breaker panel
All new plumbing
New kitchen & washroom
New flooring
New windows
Re-do fireplace
Re-do porch


Perhaps dig out the basement to lower 2'

I now have an ulcer and have to leave this forum...

Keep in touch.
