How to frame around the windows in the basement and flooring
 
Hi just curious how do i frame around basement windows. I am building a craft room. Also what about flooring? No problems with water so do I put a sub flooring or floating flooring first or what. I want to put carpet or is that not a good idea? First time project.
Thanks for any in put.

I would not use laminite in a basement.
I'd want a padding with a built in vaper barrier if your going with carpet.

Do you have a slab, I assume, in the basement? Have you taped a 1' square sheet of poly (plastic sheet) onto the floor and observed over a few days that no water is condensing on it? Is the floor cold now?
