Finishing a basement before remodeling
Hi, hope everyone is safe and well. I’m going to be doing major remodeling over the years. This summer I plan on completing an addition but I will be far from finished with everything I would like to complete. It’s going to take me a number of years to complete everything and in the meantime my basement remains a dungeon. I have plenty of ideas on how to finish and utilize the space but fear everything will be torn out when I continue to remodel. If I plan on leaving the basement ceiling exposed and my main sewer line in unfinished storage space can I finish my basement before remodeling everything else? I mean adding walls, electrical, and flooring will I just have to wait until everything is done or is getting around it easier than I think for contractors as long as ceiling is accessible.
