Basement

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

We finished our basment just before christmas (like, the 23rd). It’s soo good to have it done. Renters have already moved their stuff in and will start paying rent in a couple of days. It’l be good to finally have money coming in instead of shelling out money. Final costs for finishing it are close to these:

Concrete: $300

New Furnace: $2700 (we had to move it to fit a kitchen…and we put in central air)

Framing: $700

Plumbing: $875 (this was suuuuuper cheap)

Electrical: $1100

Drywall: $1400

Carpet/Linoleum: $1600

Finish Work: $700

Home Depot: $3500 (in the last month!!!)

Furniture: $800

Other Misc Costs: $1000

Total: $15,000

With current rents ($550/month) it’l take just over 2 years of renting it out to re-coup the costs. However, I think the house is now worth $150,000, we paid $120,000, so it should yield about a $30,000 gain in my equity. Not bad.

We’ll see how long we can stand to have renters. The two living spaces are so close to each other and you seem to be able to hear just about everything between the two, we may not be able to handle renters for that long. Who knows.

It’s still a good christmas present to have it done.

From outside the apartment, looking into the kitchenThe livingroom with the futon we bought and the renters stuff. Nice window!!!
