Almost complete basement pics
We've been working on our basement for the last 10 months and are almost done. We only hired out the HVAC and drywall finishing, everything else was DIY. We have 1500 finished sq ft which includes a home gym, a guest bedroom with private bath, a playroom, hobby room, entry/mudroom and soon to be home theater with wetbar. Because we weren't paying someone to do the work for us we were able to use higher end finishes...travertine floors - some with Nu-heat mat, cherry cabinets with granite tops, nicer bath and light fixtures. We've spent about $17,000 so far including the labor we hired out and once the wetbar is complete, along with the wall of cabinets we are putting in the hobby room and the home theater equipment we will probably have another $10,000 invested.
