Finishing an unfinished basement is similar to building an addition or a new home, but generally the project is smaller and a lot less expensive. Waterproofing and insulation is key; the US Department of Energy gives a detailed overview complete with cost estimates for a range of options. Hhmmmm…. I’ve never heard of zenwall panels until now. I’d did a few minutes of research, they look legit but I’m not sure what the cost difference would be compared to a regular frame and drywall job – it’s usually quite a bit more expensive. those prices you are quoting are ridiculously low and seem to be geared toward lower end vinyl opposed to the higher end vinyl windows.
Inexpensive extra space. Remodeling your basement is an excellent way to make use of the space you already have. A basement remodel adds a floor of quiet, private space for less than half the cost per square foot of building an addition (according to the 2013 Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report). Drawbacks include the higher price tag compared to drywall and the inability of many systems to fit homes with lower-than-normal basement ceilings.
After your basement is cleaned out and you can see the floor you are ready to start laying out your partition walls if you choose to have walls or just a plan open area. Another popular choice for basement flooring is ceramic tile. This is easily installed over the concrete slab, with the additional advantage of having many different colors and styles available; making them a designers dream. If properly installed, ceramic tiles are extremely durable, and should last as long as your house.
The main bath sports the requisite toilet and a sink with a very large built-in vanity. The bathtub, with its hand-held shower, takes up the end of the room, under a pebble glass, sliding window. The room is tiled all round to with subway tile and bull-nose topper to about a three foot height – very clean and quite modern looking. You included some really good advice. I will be following some of it as I redo my small bath. I especially love the cleaver under the sink storage.
