Framed, insulated and drywalled

I would like the floor and outside walls to have 1 inch foam put down and on the floor plywood to make it warmer and carpet layed down.
I believe the window needs to be replaced and made larger and therfore the deck also needs to be adjusted to make it a legal bedroom.
The ceiling to be a T-bar ceiling
Bathroom 7 feet 6 inches X 5 feet 6 inches
Same ceiling as bedroom
The rooms are completely apart!
Corner shower, vanity with sink and toilet
There is already a rough in for the bathroom.
Same flooring as bedroom only a laminate flooring

As well both will need ventilation as per needed

We have an area of our basement in which we would like finished into an office and spare room. When we purchased the house, the walls were already ruffed in for the rooms and the electrical has been done. There is one small wall to put in to contain one room and a small closet.

Our house is 5.5 years old. We are looking to finish our basement (approx. 600 sq/ft). We just want a basic finish...nothing special. There is a rough-in for a two piece bathroom that we'd like to put in as well as the laundry room. We are thinking about bamboo flooring in the living area and tile or laminate in the bathroom and laundry room.
We need to finish our basement along with adding a 3pc bath. The exterior walls are metal studded with 1/2 wall iinsulation and vapor barrier. House is 1566sq. Ft. We are moving into this place on July 4. And would like to start work the next week. This job will be financed thru our mortgage as improvements so the quote will be going through our bank to be approved.
I would like to finish my basement. The basement has cement floor, metal studs with insulators and the plumbing ready for the washroom. The basement size is approximately 600 sqf.

Seeking a quote on basement finishing, including subfloor, drywalling and wall finishing, california ceiling installation, framing of bathroom and two storage areas. four to five electrical outlets, additional lighting.

We have a 37 yr old house with originally renovated basement, which is now in bad shape. The ceiling is in poor condition, the fluorescents are not working well and provide inadequate lighting, and the carpet needs replacement. One outlet doesnt work and another sparks. The walls are painted panelling but just need repriming and painting, not replacing. My three little boys need to sleep down there and it is their primary playroom also, and it is really dreary for them. I have saved money for over a year and now have enough hopefully to do it. I may have someone eise to do the ceiling but please estimate with and without if possible.
Finish basement (bathroom)
Basement - metal studs, layout set already
built in desk and shelf (stone desk top)
finish stairs and railing
partilal tile by the desk (6 x 6 area)
Home theatre wiring
Bathroom (odd shape, layout set, rough in from builder)
Plumbing - not copper, pvc
Shower (tiled and custom glass door)
I'm looking for a quick turnaround to help finish up a basement reno. I need 2 light dimmers and about 10-12 electrical outlets wired and mounted (all boxes and wiring in place, just needs to be cut, stripped, attached.) Walls are thicker now, so window jams need to be extended, finished preferably flush with new walls. Some mudding will probably be required.
Painting at least one large room.
I'm hoping to get this work done this week/weekend as I have an important personal deadline to meet. If you can start working, I can pay by the hour or by the day, and figure out pricing as we go along. If you're available, please contact me!
Thank you very much.

We are looking for a structural engineer to move an existing bearing wall in our basement in preparation for our basement renovation project. Presently the basement is partially finished and the bearing wall has been drywalled, however we would like to have this wall removed and replaced with the required number of joists or posts. The idea of hiring a professional for this gives us peace of mind and assurance that it will be planned and carried out according to standard.
We also would like the opportunity to understand the process to share in the planning and to facilitate and manage this preliminary project work. We would appreciate any quotes and advice on this project and could provide photos to better illustrate what is involved.
My house was built on 2011 and would like to get the basement finished. My living space is 1573sqft to give an idea of how big (or small) the house is. In the basement, I'd like to have a family/entertainment area and probably storage (where the furnace is). There is some sort of temporary insulation installed (The pink insulation wrapped in plastic). Not sure if those need to be replaced. I'd like the basement to have good lighting. A fireplace is a nice to have(but if too expensive, maybe not). There is also a three piece rough-in for a bathroom. In the bathroom, I don't need a bath tub and only require a shower enclosure. Not sure what else to add. Basically, I just want it to be finished with almost all the area to be an entertainment area for the family.
Basement has rough in for a three piece washroom
I have laminate flooring purchased already
I would like someone to finish the basement using the flooring I have...also, install electrical to the room and pot lights in the ceiling...no bedroom or closets or kitchen
Framing and dry walling need to be done
I would like a pedestal sink or small vanity sink and small corner shower and toilet...maybe towel storage and medicine cabinet
There is one Window in the basement
Furnace and water heater and softener... no washer and dryer in the basement
The area is 19 by 24. But around 10 by 7 of that is furnace and water heater and softener
I have a budget of about 6,000
Is there anyone out there that can do the work for this price...hopefully have it done in 3 weeks or less

I have a budget of 15,000. My basement is presently unfinished. Total size is 520 sq. ft. I would like four rooms, one washroom (not roughted-in), one bedroom, furnace/storage room and small bar room with wet bar wide enough for 4 bar stools with granite top.

Finishing of basement in newly built home (Aug 2006). To include bathroom (already roughed in) & furnace room (approx 10 x 10), living area with gas fireplace (approx 30 x 15), and office area (approx 10 x 15.) . Flooring in living area and office to be carpet, bathroom to be tile. Walls and ceiling to be drywall.
Would like to finish the basement. It is already insulated, but requires framing, drywall, flooring, ceiling, electrical, painting, baseboards and finishing touches. Would like to add a bathroom with shower, rough-in already there, close off laundry area, add double doors to bachelor apt and a small kitchenette. Looking for a complete quote on the job including labour and materials. Would like someone who can complete work within a month's timeframe, clean and professional.
I found this picture on TrustedPros and would be interested in completing a similar project for myself. Note that our basement is partially finished already.
Almost half of the basement has been done already (ceiling, walls and subfloor already done). We will finish the subfloor in all the areas not enclosed.
Things that needs to be done:
1. Will need to remove some walls for open concept like the picture above.
2. Will need to enclose the utilities, laundry, water softener area, closet/storage are (under the stair) and the provision for washroom (but will not do washroom for now)
3. Will put ceiling throughout the unfinished area
4. Lighting will be recessed lighting same as the picture above.
In summary, we only need to have the walls and ceiling completed. My husband will take care of the flooring.
We are interested in making our basement into a legal rental unit and require a quote on what is needed in terms of rentals for it to be legal and to code for renting in Ontario.
Some thing we believe will need quotes for are:
-currently open ceiling may need to be finished.
-ventilation for kitchenette area
-new sink for kitchenette area
-stairs (refinish and carpet)
-window height in bedroom
-new and separate thermostat
-vent for heating in bathroom
-vents to living room and bedroom for heating
-electrical panel addition for stove
Must have previous experience with rental units and code for Ontario rentals.
