How to turn your dark, unfinished basement into a bright, comfortable living space you can enjoy for years to come.

Are you faced with a dark, unfinished space that you want to become something you can actually enjoy? Don't know where to start? I can help you. I've designed over 1300 basements and I know the problems you face.

"Basement Ideas: Exploring the Underground Frontier" was not created as a how to publication. It's intended to get your creative mind flowing with ideas. My thought process in creating this publication and each of the variants is one of "Here, take a look at what we've done and see how you can apply these ideas to your space."

This is a soft cover, full color, vertically oriented version of the Basement Ideas PDF download. If you want something to have to hand that DOESN'T require something electronic, order this. No computer needed!

Through photos and examples you'll soon be brimming with ideas.

There are 70 pages broken down into fifteen chapters - listed below.

This is the third generation of "Basement Ideas." Along the way there's been a lot of positive feedback. Here's what a few folks had to say.

"Basement Ideas...What a Great Concept! Buying this book was one of the best values during my whole basement project.

Here in one place are all the questions, ideas and tips that one can use when planning their basement remodel. Reading through it made me ponder things I did not consider, i.e. concealing doorways, changing ductwork, window framing alternatives, alternate lighting ideas, creative framing for certain basement areas, basement bars and kitchens, and more.

Plus, I found the pictures very useful in planning the final look of my basement. I looked at many sources but in the end, it was Basement Ideas that gave me the ideas I needed and used.

Specific items that helped me were Dave's discussion of using drywall for the ceiling, entertainment wiring ideas, stairway finishes, bar spaces, and protecting my investment. His discussion and tips were always well explained and logical.

I finally complete my basement project this past spring and I am glad that I used Basement Ideas for my project. It has saved me time, money, and provided me with the information and ideas I needed for a great basement!

"I am putting the finishing touches on my basement remodel job that was inspired by your publication. Once my wife and I decided to jump in and tackle the job, we looked for many sources of information as we could find. Your book helped us turn our thoughts and ideas into reality. Thank you for the help. I've included a few photos for your review"

"This is a great reference guide - very nicely done. My husband is pretty handy, but gets somewhat stalled in the "planning" stages of a large project. Yet is finding your guide very helpful.

Thanks for the follow-up and thanks for sharing your experience and skill!"
