Tim and his team are amazing. They answered all of my questions and did a fantastic job on my kitchen. I received several bids before starting my project. They offered the best pricing and timeline for the project. We also had a leak prior to starting and with their repairs… I almost forget the leak ever happened. I only have to make one call when it’s time to start my master bathroom remodel.

Tim and his guys are amazing. He completely remodeled my basement from the sewer line to the ceiling and everything in between. The quality of work was amazing! We had a few hiccups with communication between Tim and his designer but we worked out all out. Tim was always very understanding especially dealing with a bridezilla (poor planning on my part, I should have started the project after my wedding).

It is my absolute pleasure to recommend the services of Tim Hillebrand. From the time I first got in touch with Tim to the time he handed over the project I was nothing but impressed with his professionalism and integrity. Tim took the time to really listen to what I wanted and made some very good suggestions that worked out very well. I was very impressed with his proposal, pricing, and responsive service. Tim stayed on pace with the project timeline within the approved budget. The quality of his work is impeccable. His attention to detail is commendable. I will not hesitate to work with Tim in the future. Tom Curry

COMMON QUESTIONS THAT HOMEOWNERS IN BRENTWOOD ASK

How much will it cost to finish my basement?

Figuring out how much it will cost to finish your basement depends on a few different things. The total price can change based on how big your basement is, what materials you want to use, and what kind of rooms or features you want to add, like a bathroom or a home theater. Generally, the more you want to add, the more it will cost.

To start, think about what you really want to do with the space. Do you want a simple design or something more fancy? Materials can vary in price, so choosing standard options will be less expensive than high-end ones. Also, if you need to add plumbing or electrical work, that will increase the cost too.

A good way to get a clear idea is to talk to House on a Hill Renovation who can give you estimates based on your specific basement and what you want to do with it. This way, you'll have a better sense of how much you'll need to spend to make your basement just how you like it.

Do I need building permits?

Yes, most of the time building permits are required from your city or county before you start finishing your basement. This is important because permits make sure that your project plans meet safety rules and building codes. Getting a permit helps protect you by ensuring that the work done in your home is safe and up to standard.

To get these permits, House on a Hill Renovation will need to submit your project plans to the local building department. They will review everything to make sure it follows all the rules. This process can take a bit of time, so it’s a good idea to have us apply for permits early in your planning stage. Remember, working without the necessary permits can cause problems later, like fines or issues when you want to sell your home. It's always better to check with your local building department first to find out exactly what you need.

How long does construction take to finish my basement?

Finishing your basement can take different amounts of time depending on what you want to do with the space. Generally, it might take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks to complete. This time frame can change based on several factors.

First, the size of your basement matters. A larger basement will take more time to finish. Second, the complexity of your design can affect the duration. If you're adding special features like a bathroom or kitchen, which need plumbing and electrical work, it might take longer than if you're just creating a simple room. Also, the speed of getting materials and the scheduling issues can make the project quicker or slower.

Before starting, it's a good idea to discuss the timeline with with your project manager at House on a Hill Renovation so you can get a better idea of how long your specific project will take. This way, you can plan accordingly and know what to expect as your basement transformation begins.

What do I need to have a legal bedroom in my basement?

To have a legal bedroom in your basement, there are a few important requirements you must meet to make sure it’s safe and follows the rules. First, the bedroom needs to have a window big enough for someone to escape through in case of an emergency. This is commonly referred to as an egress window. This window also has to let in natural light and fresh air.

Next, the ceiling must be at least 7 feet high. If there are beams or ducts, they can be a little lower, but the main part of the ceiling should meet this height requirement. Also, the room needs a door that can open into a hallway or directly outside, which is another safety feature.

Lastly, the bedroom must have proper heating and cooling to be comfortable, and it needs to be wired correctly for electricity with enough outlets and lighting. Each area might have additional specific rules, so it’s a good idea to check with your local building department to make sure your basement bedroom meets all the necessary regulations. This will help keep everyone who uses the room safe and comfortable.

Can my basement design include a bathroom or a kitchen?

Yes, you can definitely include a bathroom or a kitchen in your basement design, but there are a few important things you need to consider. Both bathrooms and kitchens require proper plumbing and electrical setups, so this can make your project a bit more complex and might increase the cost.

For a bathroom, you'll need connections for water and drainage, which might require breaking into the concrete floor to install new plumbing. Similarly, a kitchen will need water lines for the sink and possibly a dishwasher, as well as proper electrical outlets for appliances like a refrigerator, stove, or microwave.

You'll also need to think about ventilation to keep moisture and cooking smells from building up, which is especially important in a basement. Always make sure to follow local building codes and possibly obtain special permits for these types of installations. It’s a good idea to work with a professional contractor who has experience with basement conversions to ensure everything is done safely and correctly.

Who should I hire to finish my basement?

When you're ready to finish your basement, it’s important to hire the right team to ensure the job is done well and safely. House on the Hill Renovation is a great choice for your project. We are licensed, which means we meet all the official requirements to do construction work properly.
