Have big dreams for your basement? Here’s what you need to know to turn your basement ideas into a beautiful living space.
At Steve Jackson Home Remodelers, we understand the unique demands that basement remodeling requires. There are considerations such as ventilation, lighting and heating that we take into account. There is a lot of planning that goes into each job, since the basement is below ground level, and our experience with these types of jobs make us the premier basement remodeling contractors.
Sometimes homeowners question what might happen if the building inspector comes for an inspection, and notices something that does not comply with the building code. Will I be required to change everything that the inspector finds wrong, even if it is not part of the basement remodeling project?” The building code addresses remodeling existing buildings under Additions, alterations or repairs in the IRC manual.
Why continue to pay a monthly membership to a gym when you can work out at home? For most people, the biggest issue is where to put the exercise equipment. The garage doesn’t have enough space (or you might not have a garage) and you don’t want a treadmill sitting in your living room on a permanent basis. With a basement remodeling, you have your workout site just a few steps away! You can mount a television on the wall for entertainment, and install a water cooler to stay hydrated. And the nice thing about basements is that they are naturally cool – perfect for exercise.
Hi John. I can comment on the basement cost, but you’re on your own for the patio and stuff. I’m basements only! For 1,700 square feet I’d say between 50k and 60k for the basement. My advice would be to bid those two projects out separately and if you’re planning to have the same guy do both, that’s okay, but do one then the other – just to ensure the quality is solid.
