A basement that is completely finished off is referred to as a finished basement. So what do you do with it? Well the majority clients have them done for their little ones. The reason is the basement provides them a spot to go to, to occupy themselves with their own toys and cars and other stuff. A basement doesn’t need to be remodeled to accomplish that. The basement just has to exist to do that. Now and then I come into a basement and the little ones have a piece of 13 x13 foot remenant carpeting on the floor that is surrounded by waist high containers of toy stuff. One area might be of dolls and girls stuff plus the other side can be car and truck models and airplanes and Star Wars toys all set up for boys.
I am not at all sure what you can call this sort of area. I suppose a “Kid Kingdom” could be a fairly close name. This sort of area area is usually surrounded by bicycles and other nice weather conditions larger outside toys. I have as well observed the area walled off with blankets hanging from the floor joists up above. Every now and then a cord of Christmas lights going around the top for a bit of extra lighting. This area is usually messy, with loads of even more toys left out and on the carpeting.
A phase ahead from this would be the finished basement. These are pretty costly and in fact constructed intended for the kids themselves according to their parents, but the kids do not get as many rights in a real finished basement. There is mostly no substantial play area and unquestionably no toys are allowed to stay exposed and on the floor over night. Besides the kids would have no use for a bar! Kids themselves would by no means be able to ride bikes in the finished basement in concern of crashing through the wallboard.
Kids Kingdom and finished basements have to be handled as equal as far as environmental services goes. There should have to be heating in a basement, in addition there must to be light down there. Kids sometimes don’t like going into the big murky dungeon beneath the house. It in fact scares them. So brighter and warmer is improved. Also a de-humidifier is a requirement. Humidity is heavy and settles down to the lowest level which is the basement. In a finished basement Michigan the humidity naturally is about 70% saturated and all it requires to breed black mold is a 38% humidity.
When you get the finished basement pictures for real and begin looking for someone to construct it you can give us a call if you are somewhere nearby to us. Otherwise, I advocate phoning up friends acquaintances that have had these basements done to see who they called and then screen them all through the BBB. That is a non profit company monitoring group that keeps a fairly good look out for scammers. So there are lots of ideas in this article. Good Luck!
