Basement Development Cost

The $28,500 Custom Basement Package is perfect for a large portion of our clients, and our average basement is usually in the low to mid $30,000s with a few upgrades.

On the low end we build basements for as little as $20,000 with a very simple design and no bathroom.

Some of the big ticket items that will drive up the price to the $30,000s and beyond are wet/dry bars, built-ins, custom showers, home theatres and more. Please visit our Basement Cost page for more information.

Designing Your Basement

There are many different things for you to consider before you start your development. Our educational approach ensures that you have had a chance to weigh the pros and cons and make the choices that make the most sense for you!

Some things to consider when planning your basement:

Rooms Needed

Do you need a full-time bedroom or just a room for a few guests each year? Do you want space for an office, or room for gym equipment? Our designers will help make sure your basement is set up to best suit your needs.

Subfloor Options

Subfloors can add warmth to your floor and also have waterproofing properties.


Basement Soundproofing

Need a little extra separation of sound?


Heating Considerations

The last thing you want is a cold basement! Vent placement, cold air returns and additional heating supplies are important considerations.


Don’t underestimate the importance of storage.


Primary Flooring

Carpet is warm and cozy. Hard surfaces such as laminate and vinyl plank can be easier to clean and have a wide variety of designs. Which is best for you really comes down to your priorities.


Wet/Dry Bars

Would your basement benefit from a bar or kitchenette?

Shower vs Tub

Many of our clients are surprised to find out that a shower is actually more expensive than a bathtub.

Fireplace Options

Electric is the least expensive option. Gas is a great option, but it is also the most expensive and can take up room in your space. Bio-flame fireplaces are a great option you may not have considered.


Home Theatre

We offer many different options for your basement, from a simple wall conduit for hiding your tv cables.
