We would like to know how much it would cost to have a walkout installed in our basement.
Currently there is a 2'x 3' window in the area we are thinking of having the walkout installed. From the top to the bottom of the window is made up of siding, and the balance is foundation concrete. From the top of the window to the ground is 65". The basement in that area is finished. The opening would lead out to our backyard. There is also another area with a 2'x3' window opening but is 60" from top of window to the ground. And this area is UNFINISHED.
Also would like to know how much it would cost to have 4 potlights installed in a finished area on the main floor. (Living Rm).
Typically, it cost between $8K-$10K to do a basement entrance. The process is messy in that the foundation wall needs to be cut with a saw and is typically 8-10" thick. Other things to consider is the space needed for the access stairs, so things like electrical supply lines and gas lines need to be flagged before any shovels go into the ground. You also will have to be aware of egress to the property line, this is different for each municipality. Your local building office will be able to help you with what is required.
As for you other question, pot lights usually range from $80-$100 per light installed.
Good luck with your renovations

Walk-up: There are many variables that would need to be known to provide a budgetary number, but typically it would be in the 10-15K range.
This should cover the following:
excavation of exterior
cut into foundation wall
rough-in for floor drain
form and pour concrete wall and stars
finish cladding of concrete wall for aesthetics
aluminum hand rail
aluminum railing around opening of walk-up
steel insulated door
This does not include any of your planning cost (ie. drawings, municipal permits, etc.)
Your pot lights can range from $90-$120 per potlight. This will not include any patching/painting of holes that might need to be to install the wiring.
I hope this helps!
All of the respondents dont seem to realize that the footing of your home needs to be underpinned at and beyond the walk out. No prices here seem to reflect that.
