Forum Title: Newbie Renovation
I think I am about to start on my first renovation project to live in then sell in a few years. I obviously wont be doing all the work myself but alot of the non-specialty items I will. I know this is somewhat vague but I am just trying to prepare a budget for the project. Any insight I can get behind remodeling would be awesome. Here is what I know about the house. Built in 1830, 2552 sq ft. 2.5 baths Electrical heat, would replace with forced hot water/oil. Some of the electrical has been replaced, the rest will surely need to be replaced as well. Plumbing most likely needs to be replaced. Floors need to be re-finished. Needs insulation - walls are horsehair/plaster. Interior needs to be painted. Exterior needs to be painted. Bathroom needs to be redone- will do rest later. Most of the above I can do myself besides plumbing and electrical and heating. Where I need your guys' help is trying to budget for each item. For old houses, is the cellulose blow type insulation sufficient? with electrical, do I need to rip out all interior wallboards to replace the lines or can they be ran without removing walls? For reference, what is the average cost/sq ft you need to consider for a studs up renovation? And for a partial renovation (not full gut)? Thanks!
