Our award winning basement finishing system turns your cold, damp basement into a dry and beautiful finished space.
I had easy access to running all my electric for my ceiling lighting. I mounted all my recessed lights up in the rafters and all on dimmer switches. This is a awesome look when all completed and you dim those lights with that black ceiling above. This is exactly what I was up against in the rancher I live in. I needed more living space but didn’t want to move to a larger home.
We had lots of old doors with this house so we used them. This one I painted with chalk paint so I would have a chalk board and hung it on our laundry room. Chalk paint is handy to use around the house. I have a hub about chalk paint. If you feel like it check it out. Adding or enlarging basement windows and adding exterior doors are jobs for a professional, but the resulting natural light and ventilation will significantly increase your enjoyment of this living space. Just look around, get creative, and see what old items you could turn into a treasure many will adore.
I have always wanted to use an old vanity in my bathroom. Actually, it’s a dry sink, but it would be just right for our downstairs half bath. Seeing your beautifully done transformation makes me want this to happen even more! Trouble is, my husband is neither handy, nor interested. Guess I’ll have to learn how to do it myself! They were able to take one small load into the backyard, but in the process they drove across the patio and destroyed this 2′ x 2′ paver that was covering a cistern.
I have a 265 sq ft basement that needs a dry wall with insulation, vinyl flooring to cover the cemented floor, a half bath, a wooden door, some duct work to conceal ceiling wires and wall painting. I have received a quote of $ 16,050 for the job with an addition of $ 1200 for the vinyl flooring. Is that too high? Thanks. Jim, I have been coming off and on to your site for over a year and finally getting ready to take the plunge!
