I know there have been some threads in the past on this topic but I was looking for some tips and pointers on finishing a basement. I am closing on a house July 1st that has an unfinished basement. I would like to finish it off as soon as possible. It is plumbed for a full bathroom already. It is 728 sq foot but I may leave a small portion for storage. Any good price estimates for contractors in Eastern Iowa? I would like to include wiring for a projector, sound, etc. What are other considerations to factor in?
