You did not mention windows and ones that open for a bedroom and are they about 3 feet off the floor? You might have a problem if the furnace is between the exterior door and sleeping room. Get the rules from city of Portland building dept. Tom inglesby, broker, remax equity group... more
hello Sheri, Dont feel bad about being clueless at this stage, there are lots of decisions to be made in order to find out the cost of an addition....
your wishes turned into plans
plans to permits
existing building structure transitions to new addition
the actual building of the addition
(rough framing, hvac, electrical*, plumbing, insulation, roof system, drywall windows and doors)

so all in all trying to give you a ball park is very difficult without being onsite and discussing the project more.
you are welcome to email me and set an appointment at: email@example.com

Likely it will take a detailed explanation of your basement situation and more often, a visit by the contractor to give you a good bid.

Just add / clarify ... toilet (not completely to code), shower drain, and laundry sink already exist. We want to bring everything everything to code, wall it in, and essentially have a finished bathroom in a "semi-finished" basement. We may choose to finish out the basement later on down the road but we're not sure if we'll have the funds and do not want to have to commit to it.... more
