Question about the floor - You had mentioned that the height varied from 6-7' (approx.), which I thought might be due to the floor. Did you need to level it out and were there drains in the floor at all and what did you do to minimize the downward slope there?

We did not level the floor. We left the current slopes because of cost and they weren't dramatic enough to become an issue. There were two existing drains. One of which we removed based on its location at bar area. The condensate line which drained to this location was connected into the new plumbing for the bar sink.

The interior dimensions (foundation walls) are approximately 25 ft x 27 ft. I am flattered that you are using my project for your presentation. Hopefully you are giving a positive synopsis.

What was the approximate total cost of the remodel? (minus the furniture) - Sorry, I realize this question may have been asked before. Thank you for your help. We're thinking of renovating a similar type of basement. Cheers!

I prefer not to give our project costs relative to client confidence. Generally basement renovations range from $25/sf on up to 100/sf. This one was towards the higher end given the mechanical rework and steam shower bath.

We're in the Clifton Area with a basement almost identical to your "before" picture. Did this house have its knob and tube electrical updated prior to placing in a basement shower? I'm assuming that's a requirement with the moisture.

Software for Floor planning - Simple question - what software/application did you use to create floor plans like this one. In general, can you advice on some application (free or consumer priced) that an average user can use to plan out a floor plan for basement or Patio deck etc? Thank you.

I use Autocad for the most part. I believe sketch-up is free and a decent tool. I obviously work based on precise dimensions so that is what Autocad is good for.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's the overall plan of the basement. Duebber located the main area in the center, and pushed the secondary elements like the bathroom, laundry room and mechanical rooms toward the corners. This maximized the open feeling in the main living room and bar space, giving the clients a whole new floor where they can gather, relax and entertain.More: A Contractor's Tips for How to Finish a Basement
