Basement development rough Sq/ft costs.

Keep in mind these are rough and costs will vary depending on product selections and details of basement.

Base price basement development no bathroom starting at 40/Sq/ft

With 3 piece bathroom $ 45/Sq/ft

With wet bar max size of 6’ in length $ 50/Sq/ft

Insulating of ceiling for sound ad 3-5$/ sqft dependent on amount of sound control required

Many other options available. Better off to have product selections chosen before a site visit so I can price according the actual products you choose, more often than not people always pick more than budgeted amount and have difficulty choosing to go with a less expensive or deal with the higher cost.

Also many projects are job specific, like a basement wet bar and entertainment set up, fully legal basement suite, heavy sound control in basement, heavy heating and cooling control.
