This is going to be really, really hard to do based on someone else's work. There are so many variables from basement to basement. Just a few examples:

climate / basement dampness
regional price differences in materials
doing all the work yourself vs. paying a contractor
quality of materials ($9.99 paint vs $59.99 paint)
number of rooms/doors
etc.

Quite right. I have done everything myself except the carpet in the one room and although I haven't kept an exact figure, I have spent between 12 and 15K.

Few updated pictures. I built the columns and tiled the area that will be the bar one day. Have the carpet ordered and hopefully will have it in sometime in the next couple weeks.

Nice grout lines.

Not my style, but it works well in that room.

It is called Autumn fern. Can't recall the brand. I had looked at so many and when the wife picked it out I quit thinking about it, LOL. It is what they called California Berber.
