Basement Construction Cost


We are purchasing a modular and need a basement put in. The modular is 27 x 65 feet. The walls of the basement should be 9 foot. We need someone in Michigan to give us a price quote.

Right now we just need a quick estimate (ball park figure) to get the loan started.

Thank you.

Hi Laura,

You should be able to find a qualified foundation contractor in MI without too much trouble. Your Modular dealer is the most likely place to find one.

You could also call a concrete supplier for a few names.

Get at least three bids from three different contractors and be sure to get (and check) references from them.

In the meantime if you want to get a rough estimate as to what the cost should be, read my article on “Basement Construction Cost”.

You’ll see how to use the “Building Cost Calculator” that’s on my “Getting Started” page to come up with a rough estimate of just the basement.

The shape of the outside perimeter is an important consideration in estimating the total basement construction cost.

Generally, the more complex the shape of the basement foundation, the more expensive the structure per square foot of floor area…Read the rest of the instructions on how to use the calculator to get just the cost of the basement (don’t forget excavation, permits, etc.) @ Basement Construction Cost.

Good luck and enjoy your new home,
Carl Heldmann
