I would like any information any one can give me pluss i have a few specifics i really would like answered.
1. What is formula for figgering what size main beam to use for subfloor?
2. Should i use a drylock type sealer on walls in basement before using drywall?
3. How does one lay a hardwood floor on concrete?
4. Do I need a vapor barrier between drywall and concrete wall?
