  • I just had my garage enclosed and made into a bedroom. It was small not even really big enough for one car. All they did was enclose it put in a window and of coures a closet. 8,000 was th final. Hope that helps.

  • I know its about a $5,000 deposit (but that was based on damages and size)

  • Depending on what you want done any where from 8000 to 30,000 or more...

  • it also depends on how big the space is.....the quotes we got for finishing our basement (about 2,000 square feet) is $40,000. and the plumbing is roughed in already, but nothing else is done. and with a price like that nothing will be done for a long time lol.

  • It depends on the size and what you want done. Call a couple of contractors. They will give you an estimate. That's the only way you'll really know.

  • I think size and damage have a lot of influence on it. Usually they wont give you a price over the phone the companies that do it tell you they have to come out and look at it, just because unless we see it it is really hard to say..

  • It is hard to say ...I would get estimates and also REFERENCES!! my husband builds and remodels houses and is quite good at his work, however his nephew is also in the same field and he knows nothing just kinda "wings it" and people get really quite upset! so please ask for references because all it takes is a day long class to get a license to build and remodel houses..any fool can do it but a good worker will have contacts that will give him a good word
