Basement finishing..does this $$ sound high?

5 years ago

Just got our first estimate to finish about 850sq ft of basement. We live in Northeast (a little north of Boston).

No bathroom.

2x4 framing, bluboard, drop ceiling, connect to hvac. Nothing over the top.

Cost $26,000. There was some breakdown of the cost with $5k going to drop ceiling. There is some hvac that needs a soffit, but that seemed kind of high to me.

We didn't even get into details as far as lighting, flooring etc...

Will be gettiing 2nd estimate this week. Does this cost sound reasonable?
