My Landlord in ontario, can he DO this?

I found this house in JULY 2009, I loved everything about it, except the kitchen… I met with the landlord who told me at that time he would renovate the home. At that time he said he wanted to put in a new kitchen, expand the bathroom in the basement and put the washer and dryer together since they are located on opposite sides of the basement. he also stated that he wanted to landscape the front and back yard and fix the falling down fence, which was important to us because we have dogs. I asked him at that time if he was SURE he would be able to finish all those renovations by our moving date in SEPT. he said he had hoped so, I already knew it was a big job and the end of august came and the kitchen was only half finished. at that time i told him that we really wouldn't need the basement renovated, a second full bathroom wouldn't be necessary for another couple of years as our children are only pre teens now. I thought he had said at that time he would wait. FROM SEPT-DEC the land lord was at the house almost every weekend (he lives 3hrs away) we had agreed to allow him to stay in the house in the spare bedroom till the kitchen was finished, what other choice did we have with a half finished kitchen… we started becomming annoyed because the last few visits he could have got a lot more done. he decided that he was more comfortable in my DAUGHTERS bed, as sleeps there now when he comes, if she isn't here. and when she is here im terrified he is going to freak her out by going into her room in the middle of the night when he arrives. so i ask her to sleep in her brothers room on the bunk bed. THE LAST time he was here he called only hours before saying im sorry this is such short notice, the re financing guy is comming tomorrow so i will be comming tonight i'll be there in a few hours… he didn't even ask. He started hand washing my floors the whole time he was muttering thngs under his breth… i has a puppy i got for christmas and he came across a few pee accidents the kids must not have told me about and didn't wipe up really good( my kids clean messes with out being asked so they probably seen it wiped it up quick and then the leftover dired) i think there were a couple poo accidents that weren't wiped really good either. but I WANTED TO WASH MY FLOORS NOT HIM, i was so up set he kept muttering things under his breth about it while he was washing.. i almost cried. he has also made another comment a month back when i told him we were getting a problem recitifed with mail we haven't been getting and he wrote back saying i hope that you get that problem fixed i need to use MY house as a primary address at least for a little while!! he has already had a few pieces of mail comming here ie… primus, and the enwin bill for this house– I was ok with that being that the enwin bill is for our utils, that are included in our rent.
There is this HUGE ugly piano down in the basement. last week he e mails me saying that he wants to move that eye sore of a piano (eye sore? we live here not you!) he said he wants to move it into a cubby hole/pantry area in the back of the basement. which I USE to keep all my camping equiptment, tools and other things in boxes. I only get to use half of that space because the other half is taken up by HIS TOOLS. oh yes he also has his big home made tool box on wheels he KEEPS in my MAIN FLOOR ROOM!!! he told me to move all my belongings out of the cuby because he may need to remove the shelving in there to get the piano in there! We do rent HALF of the garage, again the other half is filled with his things, which i put my foot down and said we would only pay half the money if we have half the room, I can't put anything in there unless it is in a tub with a lid because we had furniture in there that got infested with mice, the garage has holes all around it, should probably be 1st on his list of things to fix instead of riping up our perfectly good basement( there is one huge finished bedroom down there) (and a small bathroom with a shower no sink) — he wants to make it a BIG FULL bathroom… we dont even use that space, we rent it out to a kid who's parents kicked him out! anyways im not putting my camping equip. in the garage to get infested with mice. I have also been saying over and over that i have a lot of plans with the kids this summer camping and such, but i think he thinks he can continue with his renovations even if we are not here. there is also key locks on all the BEDROOM DOORS in this house and he asked for a copy of them, can he have a copy of my BEDROOM DOOR KEY? what can i do? im annoyed, i dont want him here sleeping here all spring and summer again every weekend. I dont want my house torn up for months again— thank god its the basement this time– i couldn't have guests see my house till nearly christmas because he had the kitchen a mess. PLEASE any advice, anything will help. what are my rights living here? can he just renovate when he wants what he wan
