Basement Finishing

Posted by Ralph Baker on March 17th, 1998 08:28 AM

I'm building a new house with an unfinished basement. Perimeter drains and exterior waterproofing coating with insulation will be installed. The walls are 8 feet poured concrete. The floor is poured on 3 inches of gravel and plastic. I'm having a bathroom with a shower, toilet, and sink pre-plumbed. I plan to finish the basement within the next two years and I'm looking for do it yourself references. I was surprised that the public library has few books specific to finishing basements. I found *** ****'s episode on This Old House that remodeled a basement that was helpful. I'm looking for ideas about what to do with sumps, I-beam supports and posts, furnace and water heaters enclosures, flooring, insulation, bathrooms, and so on. Any ideas?
