Do put furring on your walls: the floor isn’t the only place where moisture can seep into the basement. Apart from ensuring that there won’t be any water issues with your floor, install furring strips on the wall. This should give you about a half inch space between the moisture on the outside of the wall and the interior wall. We recommend a combination of ambient, task and accent lighting to help brighten things up and create a warm atmosphere. Here at KAKS Basement Finishing & Design our priority is our customers, our reputation and integrity!
Final – This inspection is scheduled when insulation, sheetrock, doors, and all fixtures, receptacles and devices have been installed so the space is ready to occupy and use. Cosmetic items that are not regulated by the building code, such as trim, painting, and other finish work, do not have to be completed to obtain the final inspection. The walls in this basement living area are covered with sheets of maple-veneer plywood with stained poplar boards covering the seams to create an Arts and Crafts look.
Inexpensive extra space. Remodeling your basement is an excellent way to make use of the space you already have. A basement remodel adds a floor of quiet, private space for less than half the cost per square foot of building an addition (according to the 2013 Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report). Thanks jpcmc! It is a lot of fun to DIY – I’m waiting for better weather to upgrade the yard 😀 – fixing up existing space to start. An integrated wash basin or freestanding laundry sink located in the same room, means you can easily wash and rinse clothing without having to use a sink in another part of the house.
I love this article! Our master bathroom is in dire shape, with a harvest gold toilet and duct tape over broken tiles. We’re planning on renovating it soon, and we will need to maximize the space! The designer sinks are amazing: now I’m off to dream of a brighter (and better designed) bathroom! solution for your customer, or your home. Just ask. Our staff knows their basement product well and are able to answer your concerns or questions.
