    My parents live in a 50s bungalow and did this. They gave up the small bedroom for a massive ensuite/closet/laundry area.

    Interesting. I guess the problem then becomes a lot of these houses are already so small (usually ~1000 Sq ft above ground) that you remove a bedroom for an en-suite, there ins't much left. The bigger ones though I think that would make a lot of sense!

    I find if you look in some of the central areas (Chinook Park, Meadowlark park, Some kingland and haysboro) they are easier to find...but also reflected in prices. Ive seen some that renovate their single garage to be the new Master with ensuite etc.
    I want 3 bedrooms up as I have 2 young kids that I dont want in the basement.

    You could also do what S_havinga(sp?) did, and put a second story onto a 1000sq.ft house. That's our dream that will never happen, unless someone gives us $200g gift certificate for a renovation contractor.

    Funny enough that is exactly what I was thinking about when I saw this house for sale... Is $760k too much for a house in that neighbourhood? Thinking about future property value if one were to go that route.

    The house is already too expensive for the neighbourhood. Generally less than 500 there. I wouldn't feel comfortable over that

    When my parents did it, they added about 800sqft on the main floor and basement. The house was ~1200 sqft originally I believe.

    You haven't been paying attention to it then. Houses are high 400's to 600k now, unless its one of the few unrenovated ones left. But yes, $760k is still too much for the area.
