My parents have a basement that's between 1500 and 2000 sq ft, however they have a large storage room (about 500 sq ft) that we would like to turn into a kitchenette so that they could have an income suite.
There is lighting throughout the basement, a laundry tub that works, but is unused, and again about 500 sq ft to turn into a Foyer, Kitchen and Eating Area (there are already 3 finished bedrooms, and a finished bathroom in the basement, as well as a large living area).
I have checked the regulations for there area and see nothing about basement kitchens being illegal. There is a separate entrance for this "apartment" to a fenced back yard.
I have checked the electrical panel and there are empty spaces.
How much would it cost to turn this into the income suite they're hoping for (with fairly basic materials, and a small kitchen with Stove / Apartment Fridge / Dishwasher) and potentially laundry.
I know you can't give exact numbers, but estimates would be nice. I've attached a PDF that includes floor plans & proposed floor plans. There would be a significant amount of wall-finishing, and then I would need 3 smaller walls built in the living area to create a door to separate the units.
Existing basement consists of concrete shell looking to install open concept kitchen/ living room, one bedroom with walk in closet and on-suite bathroom. Also want to add a large hall closet. Size is 45' x 35'. We will be tenants with senior parents on main floor. Floor coverings will consist of carpet, laminate type hardwood and ceramic or linoleum (for bathroom and kitchen). Will need to be insulated for sound proofing.
Fireplace in living room. Looking for modern look.
I need a new bed room built in our basement, so framing 4 walls and ceiling. Room will be 14x14 with an entrance door and walk in closet that's 4 feet wide x 42" deep. I have someone to do all of the electrical so just framing, drywall taping and painting.
Please let me know the price. We live in Riverbend, London.
Floor has carpet now and we will just use that. Just add baseboards
We're looking to finish our basement, one of two ways: either have someone come and finish it partially (insulation, drywall and drop ceiling) or have someone who could consult with us on how to do the previously mentioned work. We'd like to get the experience of doing it ourselves if possible, but obviously need someone who has expertise in doing it. We'd be happy to negotiate what a reasonable fee for this type of assistance would be. Our overall budget for doing the partial finishing is $4000 to $6000 (labour and materials). Please let us know if this is something that you would be interested in.
My home is a year old and the basement isn't finished. It is about 1000 square feet and we are looking to finish off about 750 sq feet. I would like one bedroom about 10 x 12 and a bathroom with a toilet, sink and stand up shower. I would like some custom built in shelving for childrens books and videos against one wall about 4 feet wide and 8 feet high. I would like to use 800 series doors and would like double doors on the bedroom and closet in the bedroom, a door for the bathroom and a pocket door inside the bathroom that will give access to the electrical panel and sump pump. Will also require another door that blocks off storage. Orange peel ceilings throughout the basement.
I am currently only looking for online quotes to get an idea of what it will cost us.

80 sq. m. dry concrete basement to be finished. Insulation (dricore preferred), dividing walls, wiring, plumbing, drywall and finish to create home theatre, bed/rec room and laundry. Plans available from new owner, we'd like to get this work completed before we move in.
Our basement is finished except for the laundry area, it is approx. 20x20.
This is the "black hole" of the house. here you will find the furnace, along with the exposed duct work and it is extremely poorly lit.
All that being said we are looking to brighten up this area, it is not drywalled just cement walls and the floor is not covered it is cement.
I am thinking drywall, some type of fluorescent lighting but I am not an expert at ALL.
The house was built in 1956, it is a Sifton home, it is a bungalow with a finished basement except for the laundry area. Basement area is dry no problems with water as I said this room needs help!!
I have a 1000sq ft basement that was partially finished by the previous owner. do to many problems and safety concerns i have gutted the basement and am ready for a redo. the new basement will have 3 areas, laundry/furnace/storage, main area, bathroom. id like to insulated floors and walls (possibly spray foam), new wiring will be needed (new breaker box), as well as duct work to both basement and main floor(ranch)
Our family spends majority of our time in our basement. But the basement is damp, outdated and doesn't have enough storage space. We would like to completely rennovate it and make it modern.
There is carpet going half way up the walls and the other half of the wall has the popcorn texture. There is also popcorn ceiling. We definitely need to change the walls and get some dry wall. There is a brick bar that was built too close to the wall that there isn't enough space to get a fridge or sink in behind it. This needs to be taken away and maybe rebuilt. Also, the lighting in the basement is not great at all. There are only four lights for the whole basement family room area and they are on the walls. We would like to replace these and put pot lights in the ceiling. We have a cold room that is attached to the laundry room that we never have used. We are actually afraid to open the door and see what is in there. This definitely needs to be taken out. There is a bathroom in the basemeent but it needs to be brought into the 21st century.
There is a lot of work to be done but it is a big, open concept space to work with.
I have an unfinished basement that needs to be completed by August 1, 2010. It has R12 insulation and vapor barrier combo from the builders on the walls that needs to be taken down and the room needs to be studded and re-insulated to code and drywalled. The majority of the basement has a high 9'6 ceiling. The total square footage I calculated is 584 sq ft. I would like a 6'6' two piece bathroom to be tiled with a vanity, toilet and fan. 107 square feet of the total 584 is a laundry / furnace room that I would like the exterior walls framed and insulated but doesn't have to be finished (maybe quote as an option).
Since the ceiling is high I would like a box around the exterior of the rec room that drops down 6-8 inches with accent pot lights on a dimmer and have the rest of the ceiling drywalled. The rest of the ceiling I would like pot lights on a seperate switch. For the electrical I need the normal amount of outlets and switches (whatever is needed)
I looked at putting a sub floor down but the Drycore is fairly expensive for what it is. Any other options you may have I'd like to take a look at.
I need 4 doors (1 for a small panrty and to enclose the water main), 1 for storage under the stairs, 1 for the bathroom and 1 for the laundry room.
The last thing i can think of is the central vac is cut off at the ceiling in the basement. I don't have central vac now but I would like to have the line piped the rest of the way to the basement and to drill through the foundation into the garage and have that end capped off for the main unit

There may be other larger projects as well after the basement is complete...kitchen and upper bath.
Looking for basement renovation with the floor plan in the belowclick here basement layout for our basement is exactly the same as the one listed for Kenmore Arlington except that it is a mirror image so the stairs are on the right not the left same for the bathroom/ utility room area etc. As far as measurements etc go it should all be the same. Currently the basement is not finished and only has insulation directly on the walls.

We are the property owner.
Basement is approximately 800 square feet. The home is a one floor bungalow.
The job is to install a bathroom (nothing is roughed in), demolition of the current rec room, and renovate the entire space to have a family room, laundry room, office area and storage area. (we have mapped out a rough floor plan).
The basement is dry.
Job will require plumbing permit, and electrical permits which I expect the contractor to obtain.
I also expect the contractor to have insurance.
We are looking for a professional job.
SMall 2 bedfroom bungalow in 1950, basement area is footprint of the house, about 950 sq ft.

Want to install small bathroom with shower stall in basement; laundry is on opposite side (south) from water supply. 6 windws above ground level. Want a third basement/office/guest room in basement as well as a work room, laundry and storage space. Am looking for someone to provide a quote on doing the major work and advising me on the DYI stuff. WAnt basic and fairly simple, fancy won't fit into this house. Please email me to arrange home visit.
My husband and I are considering renovating our basement. We need to have all the current drywall and insulation removed and new materials put in. We live in a 1100 sq ft bungalow and need some additional space.
We want to have the basement completely re-done by adding an additional bedroom downstairs, playroom, computer room and an additional bathroom (no rough in currently).
Were not sure if the windows downstairs meet the building code for additional bedrooms so we may need to have the size of the windows increased.
We are thinking laminate flooring (something durable) in case we end up turning this property into a rental property down the road.
The house is approximately 48 years old.
The basement is the full size of the house but has been split into 2 sides. One side is currently all concrete with the laundry and furnace with some storage and a tool bench on one side and the other side has been drywalled (not professionally) and does not look very good (you can see the drywall tape, holes in the ceiling etc).
We would like modern fixtures.
We would like some expertise regarding the layout and the best way to handle the renovations that we would like to do.
We live in the city on a corner lot.
If we proceed with the plans to renovate we would like (if possible) to start renovations in mid August. How long would these type of renovations take to complete? Would it be unrealistic to expect them to be done prior to Sept 1?
The only other concerns is that there are 5 of us living in the house right now so we will still be living in it while the renovations are being completed. So time for us is of utmost importance.
Thanks very much for your help.
