You can add a great deal of square footage to your home by finishing off a lower lever.
We are currently working on a project where we are studding in all the walls, insulating and hanging drywall. We are also adding a full bathroom with a tile shower. The bathroom was not roughed in on this project, so we had to cut out and remove concrete to complete the rough in. There will be a bar on this project that is incorporating in a basement post that we are going to wrap in stone.
I will post pictures as we progress with the project.
