There are many people in the world who have a house which has a basement attached to it. Basement refers to an extra room or a set of rooms which are located underground. Most of the time, it is known that basements are used for the prime purpose of storage. Storage can be about anything like books, junk and other such things. But there comes a time in a person’s life when they want to brighten the dark and sometimes musky basement to a place which is full of space. For this purpose it is best for a person to contact a remodeling company which specializes in basements.
For an excellent concrete floor acid stain application all surfaces must be completely dry, prepared and tested as described above. Acid Stain should be shaken well and poured directly into a plastic sprayer with a plastic filter and internal acid resistant plastic parts. The sprayer should be continuously pumped to keep a constant pressure while applying concrete floor acid stain. We are very partial to a battery operated backback sprayer sold by Crusader Manufacturing which will spray 120 gallons on a single charge. It sells for around $200.00 and if you are going to be doing a lot of staining it is well worth the cost.
Ok, I digress, 1,100 square feet basement it is. I would roughly estimate it at about 2,000 to 2,500 for electrical – if you hire someone to run lines but you do the outlet installation. For plumbing a half bath, assuming you already have the rough-in in place and you don’t need to move it and no shower or tub – about a 1,000 (if you hire it out). You could cut both of these in half if you did them yourself. So maybe 3,500 all in, just for that specific work.
Installing the cabinets is straight forward, especially if your garage walls already covered with sheetrock. Locate and mark the studs for screwing the cabinets into the wall. If your garage wall is poured concrete, 1×4 nailer strips can be drilled and anchored into the wall. The cabinets are then screwed to the nailer strips. Painting the walls with a shade of white helps to reflect light to brighten the area, and adds to a neat and finished appearance.
Our dumpster was delivered on 12/16. We sent the kids to my mom’s house for the day and tried tearing up the floor ourselves to save a little money. We only made it through some of the tile and a very small portion of the plywood, linoleum, and old hardwood before we finally called our contractor and admitted defeat – we decided we’d gladly pay to have the workers remove the rest of it!
