The final cost of your basement remodel will depend on a wide range of factors including the square footage of the conversion, any hidden damage, your project specifications, required permits, and the time and labor required to carry out the project. All costs included, costs start from around $55,000 to convert an existing basement into a usable living space - this may be more or less depending on the square footage and project requirements. For a cost estimate accurate to your specific requirements, please consult your local renovation specialist.
In order to convert your basement into a living space, you will need a building permit. Sub-permits will likely also be required in order to carry out electrical, plumbing and other works. Your basement remodeling specialist will take care of obtaining these permits and will ensure your project adheres to local building regulations. For further information regarding permits, please contact your local specialist or see portlandoregon.gov.
