Finishing Basement Ideas

In an average home, basements comprise approximately one third available space of the house; and it’s commonly noticed that most basements are used as storage repositories, makeshift laundry rooms, or home offices. In one word, most basements are used less than it should be. Here, we are going to discuss some of the cost-efficient basement remodeling ideas which will help you to utilize the space in your basement to its optimum with very little spending.

I’m not sure how much the water guard system will cost, not familiar with that system. But a 460 square foot finished basement, if you did most of the work yourself, should cost between 4,600 and 7,000. That’s if you do the framing, permits, electrical, plumbing, trim and doors, hire out the drywall. I work as a framer and my boss has told me that subfloor should be done first so that your walls have something to afix to other than the ceiling.

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. Wow, This was fun! I love the beer can curtain idea. I think I have enough can saved to do a few windows 🙂 I’m off to read cleaning the redneck way.

A 1000 square foot basement will take from about seven weeks to twelve weeks depending on the size of company you select. This does not include the time it will take to have your permit approved through your local building department. With just a little creativity, anything can be turned into something useful. Most of the time, the items are on hand. Next time you are out in your garage, take a look around to see what you could create to use to decorate.
