Our whole street come with unfinished basements....but everyone seemed to do their own except for things like plumbing.

Each basement is unique...what worked in mine wouldn't work in others...and vice versa. What works in mine, a daylight basement with french doors opening onto a deck, may not work for a fully enclosed basement.

If you are still building, why don't you have your contractor finish it at the same time?

I would suggest trying Decocorp Construction in Raleigh. They are doing our friends basement right now. They are extremely happy so far. They also have done work for a seller of mine for inspection repairs. Good luck.

If you don't use a contractor, I suggest getting permits and having the town inspect it. Without permits and a certificate of occupany, it cannot be counted as square footage for the home.

Good luck. Hope this helps.

Oh yeah, certainly pull the permits if you do it yourself. It's not expensive and it just makes sense.
