Every homeowner has different tastes and requests and Misty Harbor Builders has heard and seen them all so you’d be hard-pressed to shock us. For a full-service concept and design, we can do that to.

For more information on basement finishing with a Misty Harbor Builders contractor, give us a call today at 708-372-1689. Our contractors and designers can work with your space for the best flow through a room, storage, entertaining and utilities enclosures or camouflage. Making a list of must-haves is common to get the ball rolling on any construction project. Even upgrading utilities or electrical before the space is finished to save later on is a good thing to consider.
