Finishing a basement into an office is similar to finishing a basement for family use.  The main differences are:
  • More telephone and computer oriented wiring
  • More ceiling lighting


Most homeowners can do the framing themselves in a basement.  Check with your local jurisdiction about whether homeowners are allowed to do their own electrical wiring. Most HVAC requirements can be addressed by tapping into the existing system with ceiling registers. Basements do not have large fluctuations in temperature, and do not put heavy loads on HVAC systems.



Look for available space for built-in bookshelf or entertainment center. 



Brick or Stone is easy to do in a basement and is a beautiful decorating touch.




Lots of light is always a good choice.
