Basement Costs

We know what a giant undertaking any remodeling project can be. That’s why we won’t prescribe “quick-fixes” or use shoddy building materials. Getting it right takes time. It’s just that simple. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Pricing can vary greatly on a project-by-project basis, largely depending on your budget. During our initial discussion, we’ll tell you what ideas will work and what won’t.

Take a look at the figures below to gain a better feel of what some of our lower and higher-end projects cost. Remember, these are merely estimates based on past work we’ve completed. Every project is unique, and so are their relative costs.

*** Basement build-out assumes open layout. The more walls and upgraded trim details, the higher the price per sq. ft. goes up. Please note that even though the size of a basement may be smaller than 1,000 sq. ft. and the cost may be less, the price per square foot may increase.

*** ¾ Bath is based on a 5′ x 8′ room, which includes a vanity, toilet, and a shower. Whether the drains are pre-roughed & the level of cabinetry, countertops, fixtures and tile will indicate the final price.

*** Wet Bars are very hard to estimate until a final design is established. A Basic-Level Beverage Center consists of 7’-8’ of cabinetry and countertops. A Mid-Level Wet Bar includes the same as the basic-level except it adds an island or peninsula section for bar stools. A Luxury-Level wet bar is a more customized space for parties including multiple spaces for customer purchased appliances and high-end finishes.

INCLUDED IN PRICING: Space planning and layout design with our designer, a dedicated project manager, all labor & materials, and painting or staining. Access to our customer portal where you can monitor progress and design selections via your phone and computer.

NOT INCLUDED IN PRICING: Demo, adding egress windows or permit fees. Caution: Flooring upgrades such as hardwood, tile, & luxury vinyl tile (LVT) can accelerate the cost significantly.
