Renovating an investment condo: my budget! (and great news – it’s RENTED!!!)

So, finally had a chance to sit down and figure out my costs of this renovation. I had a $10K budget. I’m still waiting for a final invoice from Alex that will include drywall repairs to the powder room, but I’ve included his quotes on powder room floor, backsplash and tile flooring in these numbers:

Electrical (all new baseboard heaters, pot lights, repairs) 1870.00

Plumbing (new shut off valves, shower head/fittings, install HWT) 900.00

HWT/pan 388.69

New shower head/fixture 305.37

Tiles/tiling (kitchen backsplash/laundry room floor) 1470.99

Kitchen/BR cabinets reface, new panels, soft-close hinges:  3167.14

Cabinet knobs and pulls 254.18

Curtains, rods  and blinds 295.66

Lighting 620.78

Paint 75.48

Powder room tile and grout 391.38

Alarm system 150.00

Mirrored doors 1011.74

Misc. 77.31

TOTAL 10,978.72 plus HST

So, I came in about 10% over budget but my original budget didn’t include doing that powder room floor or fixes to the alarm system, so I’m pretty happy. And this is some of what I got for my money, in terms of before and after: a very nice transformation!
