Default Huh

Not a midget door... a vertically challenged door.
It is just for access under the stair landing which is framed in with 2x4 walls around it. Mostly only some storage goes under there, but I think this one will fall in the fun room category.

Hello everybody, I live in New Jersey. I am thinking about finishing my basement, framing, sheetrock, outlets and a couple of ceiling lights. Nothing fancies just a normal renovation. Is there a square ft price I can use to get an idea how much it should cost? In New Jersey is there a sq ft cost to have my basement finished? Thank you very much in advance.

usually it is better to start your own thread so that we realize that someone new is asking questions, in answer to your question I would look up the Handyguys on this forum or look at my thread titled "finishing my basement" in the general home improvement section. handyguys have done some podcasts about finishing basements and they gave a number about the average cost per square foot for finishing.

also when you start your new thread about finishing your basement, post some pictures so we can see what your working with and ideas for what your doing.
