How high are your basement ceilings? I am especially interested in what people are doing in new homes. Thanks!!!

Ours are finished at 7' 5" with a 10" drop covering the heat ducts. This is pretty normal for a standard basement - a deep basement will enable one to have a level ceiling with 8" clearance. Our home is 12 years old if that is what you are considering "new".

Our basement has 9' ceilings. Most areas will have a ceiling height of 8' when finished. However we are working in decorative tray ceilings around some of the duct work so part of it will still have 9' height.
