What about the plumbing? Is it useful to break down partitions and rearrange the space? What are the floor and wall coverings and in what condition are they? Is there a parasitic problem (termites, bedbugs, etc.)?

Demolition / removal

This second phase includes the removal of partitions, fixed furniture to be renewed (kitchen, bathroom, etc.) fireplaces and all other bulky areas for the realization of your next installation. Beware of load-bearing walls, which it is recommended to manage with the help of a specialized craftsman and with an up-to-date ten-year guarantee (ask for the certificate).

Structural work

This is the stage of bleeding, passage of ducts, evacuations and all interventions intended for future developments and fitting of electrical and plumbing equipment. The slabs are poured, the floors put in place.
At this point, dealing with moisture, infiltration, and pest issues is highly recommended.

Room layout
