Cost To Convert A Patio Into A Living Room

Submitted by: abhipsa – Fremont, CA USA

I have a covered patioappx.14’X 35′ I want to convert that into a 400 square foot living room with as much windows as possible with basic wood flooring or carpet! How much would it cost with all electrical and everything else that is needed like heating?

  1. $10,000 – There are so many questions to be answered in order to give an estimate. You need to talk to several contractors. Don`t hire an unlicensed handyman to do the work.

  2. As another posted, this isn’t a handyman job. You need a residential building contractor. That said, budget $110/sq.ft. for a turn-key job. Get several bids. Throw out the highest and lowest bidder. Then choose one you feel comfortable working with based on his experience and reputation. Discuss details of the job to arrive at a final proposal. Then let him get to work! Remember, time is money. Changes cost time to your contractor, which in turn, will cost you money.

What would a fair price be?
