We just had our basement room finished. We decided to hire a contractor because we had the money, but not the time. We knew we’d still want to do a lot of upgrades once the drywall was up so hiring someone for the first part of the project made sense.
Here are some progression pictures. We hired the company to frame, electric, drywall, and paint. I saved laminate floor installation for myself, as well as the built-ins, in order to save money (and because I wanted to do some of it myself).
