Basements Finished

Latest Projects

Sports Lover

This Westfield project used the wood featured to carry out the feel throughout the basement, with the feature piece being a bar with custom shelves to display sports memorabilia. The dark wood stain created a warm and cozy feel to the basement, which included a bench seating area with hidden storage underneath. A custom barn door hid a bedroom from the rest of the living space.

Home Theater

This Fishers homeowner wanted a full basement makeover complete with a wet bar, home theater with stadium seating and elegant wood beams throughout. The wet bar featured custom cabinetry from Cherished Woodcraft and even included two beer taps. The wood beams added a nice touch that carried a theme throughout the living spaces. This project also included an entire bathroom overhaul, complete with custom brick work in the shower.

Mid-Century Rustic

This Indianapolis project combined a rustic, industrial feel with the homeowner’s existing mid-century style furniture for a unique look. This project was full of feature pieces form custom wooden beam light above the bar to an in-wall fireplace. A custom rustic wood backsplash complimented the industrial-style shelves and sheet metal inlay of the bar front.

What is the cost of basement finishing?

The price of basement remodeling projects can vary greatly depending on the features you want to add and the overall extent of the project. The base cost of a basement remodel is typically around $60,000, with other features adding onto it. However, you can get a top-quality basement finishing project without going beyond your budget when you work with CMH Builders. We’ll be able to stay within your available price range while determining how to make the most of your available space. We’ll make sure you’re satisfied with the final results while avoiding going over budget.

We never leave our customers in the dark regarding the price of basement finishing, disclosing all details prior to getting started. You’ll never experience any unwanted surprises or worry about spending more than you have on any project at any time.

What is the cost per square foot to finish my basement?
There is no easy answer to that question because every basement is unique. The cost to finish your basement will be based on the rooms needed and the amenities you desire.  A basement with a wet bar, full bathroom, sauna, fireplace and maple trim will have a different cost than one that does not have those features.  Prices can range from $10 to $50 per sq ft, with the majority falling between the $20-$30 range.
Do you provide free estimates?
Yes. We do not charge for an estimate. Our project consultant will visit your home to look at your project and sit down with you to discuss all of the available features based on your space. We will then take this information and put together a full design and detailed estimate.  We will then set up a time for you to visit our fully-stocked showroom for a follow-up meeting to discuss the estimate in detail as well as give a 3-D virtual tour of your finished basement.
Why is there a big price difference from different companies?
There are many possible reasons for this. Some are not giving you exactly what you’re asking for. They are including the minimum, which will result in a much lower price. Others are giving you lower priced materials and/or quality of workmanship.  Other companies also leave out big ticket items like flooring and painting from their bids and leave it up to the homeowner to complete.  You have to be specific with what you want. We are very detailed with our proposal. You need to compare “apples to apples”. If there is more than a 10% difference in bids, there is a problem that should be discussed. Remember, quality does cost, but it also pays. We may not always have the lowest price, but will deliver a product of the highest standards at a price that is fair.
How accurate is your estimate?
Our price is guaranteed for 30 days, based on your plans and specs. Our proposal is very detailed; you know exactly what you’re getting. Our price only changes if there is a dramatic change in material costs or if there is a change made to the scope of work.
