Splitting a large bedroom into 2

I have one very large bedroom in my house it can easily be split into two , anyone know the approximate cost of adding a dividing wall and door

Also any rec's on a Mississauga / GTA builder who could do same?

You also need to factor in building a new closet if you intend to use both as bedrooms.

Nothing is as easy as it seems.
New flooring?
New window?
Electrical work?
Drywall installation and repair.

Maybe post a picture/drawing and we can break it down and make a good guess.

Sounds like a good way to expand your living space and avoid moving.

If you are not going to DIY it, maybe just get some quotes.

No additional window required or HVAC ducting , just simply a wall in between ( the original owner had asked the builder from the plan to make one large bedroom instead of 2) ...so the wall should be ok , the door may require some electrical to be re-run

Ok so... Very wrong


Anyways. Where is the door going? Obviously you gotta bust out an opening into the hallway.

Post pictures from different angles and we can help a little more.

It will cost you at least 5k to have 2 FULLY functional bedrooms done by a professional.

In that case it's a very diy project. Few hundred bucks
