The Golden Process
Our process starts with an on-site meeting with a designer to understand your goals, expectations, needs, and wants. From there, we’ll develop a design, select materials, and prepare a detailed budget.
After the initial design, you’ll have time to review and consider all aspects of the project and refine it until you’ve signed off on the final designs and decisions.
Once all the logistics are in place, we’re ready to get to begin construction. We will keep you informed throughout the build, and we aren’t done until the final walk-through ensures you’re thrilled with the results.

Frequently Asked Questions About Basement Renovations
Is it worth finishing the basement?
Yes! Consider that, unlike other home additions, an unfinished basement already has walls, ceilings, and floors before you even begin to renovate, saving you money on your project. Basement renovations also offer unique opportunities to improve your quality of life, and the project offers an impressive return on investment of around 79%.
How much does it cost to finish a basement?
The project typically costs between $7 and $50 per square foot, so you could expect to spend between $7,000 and $50,000 to finish a 1,000-square-foot basement. If drywall and concrete floors are already installed, anticipate lower costs. If you install luxury fixtures and finishes, the price tag will land on the higher end of the spectrum. Don’t forget to factor in furniture and decor as well.
Is it legal to have a bedroom in the basement?
Yes. In fact, adding an extra bedroom or apartment suite in the basement is a popular trend in 2022. The bedroom must include a code-compliant egress window. This means the window must be large enough (at least 24 inches tall with a 5.7-square-foot opening) and low enough (no more than 44 inches above the finished floor) to escape through in an emergency.
