Here are some ideas and projects we have done in the past.

If you are looking to create a separate a living space that you can use for “in and out guests”, a mother in law apartment, or rental income, a basement apartment is a practical use of unused space and its more cost effective than a brand-new addition. Even the darkest most dingy basements can be turned into a beautiful living space when you add a kitchen, a bathroom and other custom features. This can be one of the best investments you can make into your home. We also do a lot of flex spaces where home owners can have a strong door with a deadbolt separating the space so there is access from the house. The cool thing is, you get to decide.
For some people working from home sounds like an impossible thing to do. But when you have an office tucked away in the basement and you can provide yourself a separate working environment it can really make a difference. From choosing double doors, built in shelves or what you want to make a perfect office to creating a multi-purpose room that can serve both an office or a bedroom there are a lot of options. The cool thing is, office space can always turn into homeschool rooms or family studies. It’s really up to how you want to design it.

Basement Finishing Costs
When budgeting for one of the biggest home construction projects you might undertake it is important to keep these 5 different types of construction that go into the basement finishing process. We are lucky to have such a low water table in Colorado to make more of these projects possible without costing too much.
The first step in the process assuming you have all of your drawing and plans in doing the layout and the framing. In most cases people choose to use wood framing as it is the most cost effective. You will need to account for the cost of the lumber and labor.
It is really important you hire a contractor who works with electricians who are licensed and are up to date with modern codes. You will need to consider the cost of all of the material and the labor for a couple of electricians to wire your basement safely.
Plumbing can sometimes be just a small part or no part of a finished basement depending on if you want a bar sink or bathroom. For every piece item of running water consider the extra costs with sink, toilet, shower etc on top of the labor for installation.
This phase is the phase that no one wants to do on there own because it can be such a mess. Good dry wallers are fast and if you work with a good supply company you can save on labor by having the supply company deliver it to the basement.
Depending on if you want cabinets, carpet, laminate and the different paint options etc, typically finishes can become the most expensive part of the project depending on your taste and what you really want. Finishes include sinks, lighting fixtures and whatever else bells and whistles you want to have the perfect finished basement. We see a lot more high end finishes in nicer areas of Denver and Boulder.
