Any idea about how much it might cost to finish a basement?

The wife and I are thinking about finishing the basement in the new home. We have about 1500 square feet to finish. It would be two bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom and our theater room. Anyone have any idea how much that might cost before we start taking bids?

Thanks

Does your employer know about your plans to extensively use Italian Marble and custom wood trim from old growth forests?

Generally $55 a square foot. Depending on what you want, I do it for around $45. But, the bathroom is going to skew the cost upwards some, depending on how nice you want it. Exponentially more if it isn't already stubbed in.

I just ran our last basement project through the calculator and we're closer to $30 per sq ft on this one. I guess it depends on what you want done and what the substrate looks like.

I'm still fretting. i just figure if we are going to have to finish the basement anyway, it will prolly cost more the longer I wait. Might as well take all my poison at once.

The bidet. Make sure he gets a bidet. After this season, we're all going to need a good cleansing.

A great room, wet bar with cabinets, 1 bedroom & closet, and a bathroom conversion from 1/2 bath to full. Roughly 1000 sqft in a walkout basement, which is why it was cheaper. Two other factors which saved that customer money were that they didn't want any soundproofing between the 1st level and basement, and they allowed us to carpet right over the concrete instead of taking on the expense of a subfloor. They got a pretty attractive price, IMO. If you find somebody to bid it by the time and materials, you can find a decent price, too. If it were my basement, I would try to avoid somebody who quoted you based on the actual square footage.

hopefully you will be taking bids with the idea of doing as much as you can yourself. Assuming you know what you are doing, that will be the only way to really save money. If you don't, leave it to the pros. Ka-ching.


Being married to a contractor rocks...that is when they actually have the time to do the job. You know the old saying 'the vet's dog has fleas...'

We hav ethe rough in plumbing for the bath. We are looking to finish two bedrooms with closets, and finish off the theater room. We'd like a riser in the the theater room and have the wiring ready for the speakers.
