Surprising home reno expenses:

 

Blueprints :  approx. $300 - $500 pending on the printing company

You will need to get your blueprints printed on a large scale 24”x36” for a few reasons.

 

Dumpster :  budget for $500 each dumpster

If you’re demolishing any part of your house, you’ll be shocked to know how many dumpsters you’ll need to dispose of items.

 

Port-O-Potty : budget for $200 per month

If you’re doing a full gut job and they’re won’t be a functioning bathroom in the house, you need to get a port-o-potty for your trades when nature calls.  In most cases, this is actually a city by-law and you are required to provide one.

 

Temporary Construction Fence :  budget for $100 per month

Again, another requirement that the city will likely impose when you’re doing a large scale renovation such as an addition or adding a second story.

 

Sidewalk Damage Deposit :   cost varies - we spent $2,800.

Depending on the city you live in, they may ask for a sidewalk damage deposit.

 

Tree Damage Deposit : cost varies depending on the type of tree

If you have any trees on your property you’ll have to pay a tree damage deposit and fence it off with temporary construction fencing to protect it.

 

Cancelling Garbage Pickup : cost varies depending on the city you live in

If you are getting large disposal bins/dumpsters frequently, you don’t need to put your own small curbside bins out on a weekly basis.

 

Lockbox :   approx. $50 each

You MUST have one of these so that all of your trades can access the property on the off chance you are not there.

 

Wrapping Power Lines :  cost varies depending on where you live. We spent $900

When you’re removing the roof or doing any construction around the main power line that comes into your house so that all of your trades are safe.

 

Disconnecting Main Power Line : cost varies depending on where you live. We spent $700

You need to replace your electrical panel, for safety issues you’ll need to pay the city to disconnect the powerlines from the house.

 

Monthly Rent :   Varies depending on where you live. We paid $24,000 for 14 months

Depending on the size of the renovation, you may need to move out your house while the reno is underway. You may need to rent another house or AirBNB, or if you’re lucky you can move in with family and live rent free!

 

Moving Expenses :  Varies on location  + number of family members. We budgeted for $5,000

 

Don’t forget to account for moving out of your house and then moving back into your house.

 

Storage Locker :  Cost varies depending on size of storage you need. Budget for $300 per month

 

Don’t move everything you own. Store it while you are living temporarily somewhere else.
