f your basement is a walk out basement at ground level (with a full size door) you can count it as square footage. A full size daylight window large enough for an adult to exit makes is legal to let someone sleep in the basement, but does not add to square footage. You can however classify it as finished space, but not actual livable square footage for appraisal purposes. Finished space above grade is appraisal square footage.
As long as you dont count any bedrooms, the square footage in the basement can be counted as livable sq ft. If you want to add another bedroom, only if the basement is a true walk-out accessible basement will that bedroom be added to the homes legal description.
