Again, I don't have money to do that.

Plus, we'd need a sump pump so tack on a few extra grand.


Nope...5k isn't chump change. I wasn't implying that at all..but nonetheless it's cheap for finishing a basement...but that price is doing it yourself. And $5k may actually be a little low...it might end up being around $6k.
If you pay someone to do it, it would cost hella more, like at least $10k more...which is why I am doing it myself. We couldn't afford to have someone finish it for us.

In our case, finishing our basement also comes out of necessity. We need the space. We are expecting our 2nd child in August...so moving the office downstairs to free up a bedroom upstairs is something we have to do. Also downstairs will be a play area for the kids, tv area & poker/bar area.

Does a sump pump cost that much? I think they only cost a few hundred bucks. Installing it yourself would probably save you a lot of money. Plus, it would be fun...you'd get to use a jackhammer.


Congrats!


Thank you sir...we're pretty pumped about it. 8)


That's one way to put it.

You could always put a bunch of Blues memorabilia down there. I mean after all, they DO enjoy staying in the basement.
