We're finally getting around to having our basement renovated and spent a month clearing out all the junk that we've accumulated down there. We eventually rented a dumpster and threw all the stuff we couldn't donate in there, but there's still some heavy gym equipment and other large furniture we'd rather not move upstairs if we can help it.
Our basement is fairly large, and before we start getting quotes, we were wondering if it's possible or even makes sense to ask the contractors to work on one side of the basement at a time so we can just push all the heavy stuff to the other side?
Sure this is possible. I believe most contractors would not have a problem with working around stuff. Unfortunately the only draw back is it will cost a bit more in the over all renovation depending on ( walls, plumbing, wiring, ductwork and general layout)Your contractor should be able to tell you how this will or will not affect there Estimate for the Reno.
Any reputable contractor should work with you.This doesn't seem to be a huge request.
Depending on the amount of items to move they should be able to work around it.
Not to say we prefer the area to be cleared out for efficiency purposes.
