Every family is different, so when looking for basement ideas make sure you pinpoint how you spend your time and then cater to those hobbies and interests. If you host parties often or are beer and wine aficionados, turning your basement into a home bar or wine cellar would be a good investment. If you’re looking for a kid-friendly hangout, become the neighborhood hot spot with a massive family and media room combo. Give the guy in your family the ultimate escape with a man cave, game room and home gym, or be practical above all else by adding extra bedrooms and another bathroom.

Before walls and a floor can be added, the basement must first be professionally framed. Framing an unfinished basement can be very expensive; not only will it require a large amount of labor, but material costs are high as well. If you consider all the lumber your contractor will need to lay crossbeams and place studs, you will find that lumber is going to be one of the most costly aspects of the project.
The eyebrow arch is a great consideration when replacing a front porch. The common circumstance is often adding a roof to the front entrance. Many colonial structures and ranches have no roof over the front entrance. This causes undo exposure to sun and rain. More importantly, IF completed with an eye to the architectural design as the photo sample below details, the added eyebrow entrance arch adds a great design element to your curb appeal of your home.
