I am looking to redo a basement apartment in my rental property in Burlington, the apartment has been in use for the past 17 years and I am looking to give it a more modern look. I would like to start with the flooring. The walls are mostly done, I am thinking of moving one dividing wall. I am looking to IKEA to supply and install the kitchen cupboards and appliances, so what I am looking for is mostly the flooring.
I have an unfinished basement (approx. 700 sq/f) that I want to complete. Job would include framing, dri-core floor, electrical, relocation of main floor laundry room to basement, approximately 10-12 potlights, drywall/taping, trimwork. basement also has roughed in washroom.
30-40 yr old home
previously finished basement and laudry room
needs to be reframed, adequately insulated and redrywalled, smooth ceilings only, sound control measures (insulation in the ceiling???)
if any moisture problems found -- must be fixed
existing aluminum wiring to be replaced with copper, additional lighting added (~20 potlights)
brick woodburing fireplace to be clad with drywall and converted to gas, new mantle
wainscotting and new trim, new doors
tile to replace vinyl in laudry room, new laudry sink, cabinet and counters installed
berber carpeting throughout
rewire any 1st floor aluminum sockets with copper if accessible though the basement floor
new phone line cable and jacks needed (currenly only one working phone jack present)
I am renovating the basement of my 80+ year old home in southwest Burlington that is generally in very good condition. The steps to the basement do not allow for much headroom and make it difficult to move any furniture into the basement such as a fridge, sofa, box spring matresses, etc..). I am a fairly handy person, but when it comes to structural elements of the house I would prefer to use a professional... OR assist a professional (if that keeps the coss down and you are okay with that idea - your call!)
The stairs to the basement are from a side entrance that is half a flight down from the main level of the house and a further half a flight down to the basement. The basement has historically been used as storage and altough the ceiling is not as high as a modern home, at about 78-80" it is high enough for a kids play room or a lounging TV room & bar.
There are a few options that I have come up with to solve the tight access issue such as dropping the landing and all the resultant steps by one, or moving the header that your forehead hits as you enter the basement back further into the basement. There is also a single 2x8 joist running parrallel to the stairs (to the central supporting beam) that makes the stairs to the basement rather narrow and as far as I can tell it could be moved to the side by at lesat 4 or 5 inches to widen the space. (some minor electrical modifications may be needed).
I would appreciate the insight of someone with an open mind to come up with a creative solution to this problem, or an effective way of implementing one or all of the above options.
My timeline for implementing this work is soon. It could be next week if a response is received that makes sense or it could be next month if you have a good idea, a competitive price and are busy in the near future. I am not in a super hurry, but don't want to wait too long.
I imagine this could be something that is done in one or two days once the details are worked out.
Please contact me to arrange a quick look at the problem and if interested, to provide a quote.
Primary job is basement finish and includes:
(1) a bedroom with attached bath room and closets;
(2) a bar with a counter top and some cabinets;
(3) a small workshop;
(4) a powder room;
(5) pot lights in the basement ceiling; and
(6) audio & video wiring for home theater.
Additionally some cracks in the concrete floor need fixing. Also just past month we saw a small water leak in the basement that needs to be looked at.
The basement area to be finished is approximately 1050 sq ft. The house is 9 years old.
Please take a look and give us a quote.
House is 70 years old, basement was built in 4 stages. no water or mold.
- Area 1: 14'x27'. original, cement block, very unlevel concrete painted floor, stairs, very rough laundry, opening to unfinished crawl space. Project work: level floor, frame drywall and finish outer walls and close off furnace area to create living space at bottom of stairs, mud room receiving area at bottom of stairs, and proper laundry. (ok to simple used reclaimed cabinetry for laundry).
- Area 2: 17'x26'. floor is level painted concrete, walls panelled, ceiling framed not finish, and fireplace. Project work: Drywall ceiling, pillars, and install lamnent flooring.
- Area 3: OPTIONAL: crawl space, sand floor. Project: lower to full height and concrete floor.
We would like to get a quote to finish our basement. The walls are approx 930 sq.ft. ( 570 sq ft insulated to outside wall and 360 un-insulated to an inside wall) and the ceiling is approx 700 sq.ft. I am looking to have it insulated, studded and drywalled. We would probably want 4 or 5 outlets and maybe 12-16 potlights. The house is only 3 years old. I installed all the hardwood in the house and will take care of the basement floor as well. I just dont have the time to do the rest. I am sure you will need to come and have a look, but am looking for an idea of what your cost would be. Look forward to hearing from you. Also, probably 2 doors and one closet door.

House is about 60 years old. Roughly 1000 sq ft - started renovating basement but unfinished because could not agree with contractor. Drywall incomplete - one room about 110 sq ft unfinished. Electrical work leaves much to be desired. NMD-7 #12 AWG mixed with 14/2: NMW10, 14 AWG14/2 mixed with regular 14/2 and other examples of non-grounded receptacles and light boxes. Bathroom is about 100 sq ft, presently covered with green drywall - needs to be finished (paid contractor for materials which he has not delivered).
I'm finishing my basement & total perimeter has already been framed (2x4 wood) by the previous owner. I need a couple of additional dividing walls and to drywall/tape the entire basement. This is a 2 story house and about 20 years old - total - 2,600 sq-ft. I estimate the basement to about 1/2 of the total.
Currently it is a finished basement with no insulation and a poor layout. It is a small space that is currently being very poorly utilized. We want a basement that is highly usable and uses the little space available as efficiently as possible. While we are concerned with budget, we do not want 'the cheapest basement on the market'. We look for, and expect, good value for our money. We are also willing to assist, where possible, with 'grunt work' to ensure we stay on budget.

The house is approx. 6 years old. We are looking to finish our basement to give us some more useable space, particularly for our one year old son. We are considering two options, either finishing the entire space with a family room, 2 piece bathroom, laundry room, and storage/utility room; or only finishing the main family room area. Key factor is time to complete as we would like to see it done by Christmas. We are looking for a qualified contractor who will take our plans and execute with quality workmanship.
Need to complete the basement in my house. The home is 5yrs old and the basement is unfinished. I have some ideas about what we'd like to do but also looking for some input. Most likely looking for at a 2 pc bathroom, kids area, family area, some storage space. Also considering a bar but need to see how that would fit into the layout.
right now just alot of junk in the basement and a pool table.
I have a partially finished basement. I would like to finish part of the other basement by adding a bedroom that will be approximately 10 by 10 feet and adding a washroom that would include a mini jacuzzi 5 foot by 32 inches, a toilet, shower, and sink. The square footage of the house is approximately 2300 square foot. The house is approximately 25 years old. The expectation of the bedroom is nothing extravagant. Carpet on the floor and basic lighting.
