I want to create another room in my basement. basically if I just construct a wall of 16 ft in length, it will make a room in my basement. this is a standard dry wall, with a door and 2 to 3 electric outlets.

I need an estimate for both money and time.

In looking at the materials and job required it would cost about $3500-$4500.

Thank You,

Hi! Thanks for posting. Will this room you are creating be a bedroom? Is there a heat run existing on both sides of the wall? Is your ceiling drywalled or is there a drop ceiling.

I would estimate that without this information you should expect to spend between 1000-4000. I don't believe this would require permitting but we would need to confirm the requirements of your jurisdiction, but it should t take more than a week to complete.
