Can Basement ever be liveable space??
Just need to know if this is just a pipe dream or could it actually be a reality with some money invested. Or...save my money for something that is a sure thing?? My basement is just that, a basement. Not finished, concrete floor, concrete walls, basic cellar windows. My house is very small...900 sq. ft. and adding liveable space in the basement would be great. Here's the issues...It gets wet when it rains VERY hard, wet when there is a thaw most every spring, it smells musty, like a basement. Could it ever be made into REAL living space with real walls and a real floor and ceiling, and no musty smell?? Or because it gets wet now, no matter what I do there is always a chance for flooding in the future? I see some of the pics of basement "rooms" and to me..I would'nt consider them basements. They are beautiful. Mine is a total basement. Just what a basement was meant to be when the house was built.
