Water feature There are a lot of basements in the city that have water problems. Sometimes this is obvious (as in a big puddle) and sometimes it isn’t (as in vapor coming up through the slab). Water in any form spells trouble for a basement finish. Make sure you have checked this risk out thoroughly before swinging the hammers.
Egress The problem with many basements is the little windows. In a fire or another emergency, these spaces can become death traps. Make sure if the space is going to be lived in, that you have made a door or egress window to keep everyone safe and sound.
Height Code requires half of any room to have a ceiling height of 7′ 6″ or greater. If your ceiling joists down there are lower than that, you can still finish it, but don’t expect it to count as space when you sell.
