My DIY Basement Renovation Project


Did you put something on the cement before the carpet?

I would think that it would be important to raise the floor a bit and insulate?

Looks great! Wanna come do mine?

Filled the cracks and then glued the carpet.

It was commercial grade carpet, so it was installed in that manner.

thought about dricor (sp) but decided against it. Didn't want padding, that would just be a sponge if it got wet. Did commercial carpet so that if it does get wet, is easier to get vacuumed up and dry quicker (short nap).

My basement building days are over after this one...lol...the rest will be hired out!
