Please email me - do not call. Can send pictures and floor plan. Looking to do an estimate on April 1st, would like to start work near May 1st. Attached are pictures of what the end result would be. Don't have pictures of what it looks like now but most of everything on the first floor would get torn out. Some walls might be able to stay if thats really a cost savings. Would need: New lighting Flooring Finishes There is currently one bathroom- but we'd like to add another bathroom, using the same/existing plumbing wall. New W/D hook ups New Windows I've attached pictures of the desired final product and a loose floor plan(the 2nd floor was already remodeled, but we want you to do the 1st floor). The existing layout is similar to the layout in the floor plan, but as mentioned a few walls may need to move. Please let me know about availability.
