Thank you for your interest in Mile High Basements! We are committed to working with you to design a basement that meets all of your needs, both aesthetically and functionally.


There are six main steps to our Design and Build process:

As soon as you contact us, we can schedule your free in-home consultation. We usually can meet with you within a few days.
We’ll meet with you at your home to discuss your finished basement wants and needs. We spend as much time necessary to hear your ideas and fully understand your vision. We also draw on our more than 15 years of experience to offer some options you may not have considered. This process is collaborative, and our goal is for your basement to be an extension of your home. Before we complete the consultation, you’ll have a ballpark idea of what your costs will be. We then follow up with a detailed estimate and contract.
This is where the fun begins! This phase can take between one and two weeks, depending on the size and complexity of your project. Our designer begins by taking exact measurements of your basement, including all structural, mechanical and means of egress. This information is then entered into our CAD system.


We use these calculations to create the new level of your home. Once we have a few variations of the project ready for your review, we set up a meeting, which can take place in your home or online.


By utilizing our 3D renderings, we walk you through your new basement room by room and answer any questions. You tell us what you like and what you don’t, and we create a final design based on your input.

Once we have created a final design exactly to your specifications, we meet with you to go over all construction drawings and detailed costs. With our easy-to-read “What’s Included” spreadsheets, you will see exactly what each item costs. There are no surprises; you’ll have the chance to review every detail, right down to how many light switches are included! At this time we also discuss a start date for the project.
The construction phase can take eight to 12 weeks depending on the scope of work.

At the onset, we provide you with a construction binder containing useful information, such as “what to expect during construction,” names and contact information for our vendors, and other useful tips for making your basement finishing project an enjoyable one.


You also will receive a wall calendar with a guaranteed timeline for your project. This calendar shows the work that is scheduled for each week throughout the project. Our jobsites are cleaned at the end of each working day, and there will be a dumpster on site at all times during construction to keep the site clean.

At the completion of your project and once your final inspections have passed, we send our amazing cleaning crew in to make your new level sparkle. They will vacuum the carpet, clean the windows and screens, and dust all the way up the stairs and out the front door! Now it’s time for you to enjoy your new Mile High Basement.
