Let's Start Planning Your Basement …
- What do you want from
your basement; more space to store your stuff,
more room for kids to play, more space to
entertain your family and friends? Remodeling
your basement offers solutions to a variety of
family needs and wishes. Like any remodeling
project, though, finishing off the basement
begins with the plan.
- Basements come in many
shapes and sizes, and may have obstacles like a
furnace, water heater, pipes, ducts, support
beams or poles, and drain pipes to work around.

children's playroom will require enough space

concern, maybe a big comfy hide-a-bed will do.

brings a convenience to any downstairs working
or living space. Do you have enough room for
one? Do you have a necessary plumbing I place?
And of course, do you wish to have another
bathroom to keep clean?
- Enjoying your new
basement demands a comfortable environment.
Check your foundation for leaks or cracks that
could cause dampness. Insulating the exterior
walls can help reduce the chilliness of your
basement. It's required by code any ways!
Installing a subfloor and padding beneath the
flooring or carpeting raises the floor
temperature, improving overall comfort
especially for children playing on the floor.
Fireplace can add warmth and beauty to basement
rec room, while baseboard heaters quickly take
the chill out of your downstairs craft room or
- Soundproofing may also
be a consideration for your project. Whether you
are keeping the sounds of t he world outside of
your office, or the sound of your teenager's
drum set inside your basement, there are a
