Duncan – Happy Friday to you my friend. Let’s see… so let’s say 1000 sq. ft. of finished basement, you’ve already got framing and electrical (sounds like), you just need demo and new drywall. Maybe flooring? Let’s say you and your homies demo it (beer and pizza). Then you hire out the drywall … Read More
One of the biggest home renovation challenges can be creating space in a small, main bath where no space actually exists.
First, let me say that I think Mr German is an excellent teacher, especially for idiot novices like myself. I’ve had difficulty with other DIY books assuming a certain vocabulary. German provides an excellent intro to DIY in framing, carpentry, plumbing, electrical etc. I now feel I can start reading more advanced DIY books on each of these topics.
Before you begin applying foam insulation you should clean the surface of gross dirt, debris, and oil. Foam insulation sticks to everything except oil. It is still best to remove any accumulation of dirt and debris. A simple sweeping should be sufficient to prep the surface. Oil should be scrubbed free of any surface as the foam will not stick and will pull back as it dries, leaving a small … Read More
This basement space shows it doesn’t take a lot of square feet to create a wine cellar of stellar proportions.
Less expensive than an addition. Finishing a basement is typically less expensive than building an addition or moving into a larger house. The total cost for a basement renovation can vary widely. It all depends on the scope of your project and whether you can do the work yourself or have to hire a contractor. The wall color in this bathroom was good enough for this makeover because it matched the color we chose for the vanity.
A drop-down stair was suggested, but as it would block egress to the upstairs bedrooms, to say nothing of the bathroom, that was not really an acceptable solution. Besides, once the stairway was lifted, it would effectively strand whoever was in the upstairs studio. If you’re interested in planning and pricing for your … Read More

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.

Taking an unfinished basement and turning it into a finished room for your home seems daunting, but the team at Elite Remodeling knows exactly how to get you what you want from your project.
Thanks for this informational Hub. I am planning on having a basement remodel soon, and some of the estimates I have received are crazy when you look at the fine print. It amazes me what some of these people find to be ethical and moral in terms of seemingly shady practices. If you have plenty of space, purchase a folding table or include an integrated counter to serve as a folding station. This way, clothes can be folded as soon as they are removed from the dryer. A folding station can also be used for sweaters that require flat drying. This looked fine with the painted ceiling rafters and the room now has that loft look … Read More

After application, you need to cleanup by sweeping away any leftover stain and residue with a broom after flooding the floor with water. It is always a good idea to shop vac the water so as to get the residue up and out of the pores of the concrete and make it a little easier for the stain to get into the pores. When the floor is thoroughly dry, it is a good idea to apply a sealer agent … Read More

Plans were soon underway to convert the attic into a studio. It was decided that two small dormers with window seats on the east side of the attic would let in lots of morning light, and the one large dormer facing west on the opposite side of the attic was quickly expanded to become a walkout to a small private balcony. We design and build premium home bars for nationwide delivery. Contact us TODAY to begin your bar project!

You can use a rough figure of $39.00 to $45.00 a square foot for basic and complete basement finishing for basements 1000 square feet of larger. You will see some internet sites quoting lower rates, but after seeing hundreds of proposals in the last year $45.00 with carpet is about the average.
