Basement Apartment Finishing

Finishing basement apartments is becoming more and more popular in Utah. As real estate prices have risen considerably since 2020, many Utah families are finishing their basements as apartments and converting existing finished spaces into basement apartments.

At Dansie Design Build, we start with planning and designing the space and follow a Design-Build approach to finishing basements. We are dedicated to making your basement apartment finish an enjoyable experience for you, and everyone involved. Once we have completed the design phase, we move into constructing the new basement apartment.

In a design-build environment, one company is responsible for both the design and construction. This simplifies and streamlines the experience for the homeowner, reducing the risk of having details fall between the cracks while working with multiple companies. This gives the design and construction teams the communication to design a basement apartment that will fit the owner’s needs and budget. Owners also benefit from better communication and experience a faster timeline to complete their basement apartment compared to a more traditional approach to design and construction.


We can start with a completely unfinished basement and turn it into a completely rentable space that is ready to accommodate new tenants comfortably.  We can design and build your existing unfinished basement into a comfortable living space that can be rented or accommodate additional family members. Feel free to contact us on our Request A Consultation page to start designing your basement apartment.
