Anyone finished a basement in an OLD house?
hi! lots of great info on this site and some beautiful results, but it seems that most of the basement projects (or at least the ones I've seen) are in newer homes. Has anyone finished off a basement in an old house? I'm contemplating doing mine. my house is quite old (1917) but has no evidence of leaking/water infiltration, and I'd have enough headroom, depending on the ceiling finish. i have enough know-how to get it figured out, but i wonder if the results will be as great as what i'm hoping for given some of the obstacles a 90-year old basement presents.
i guess i'm just wondering how people have worked around the difficulties of an older basement - uneven floors, walls with a slight bow (not structually unsound, just "settled")less head room, etc. Anyone have photos they'd care to share? I'd like to see the level of "finish" attainable...maybe it will inspire me!
