This is one of the few books that I can actually recommend on basement remodeling. It gives good tips and advice that make the details of how to approach the physical tasks quite simple. This book is a great companion to my DVD: Create a Beautiful Basement.

Finishing a basement is one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to increase living space in a home. "Remodeling A Basement" will help you visualize an inspiring range of basement remodeling possibilities, and go about the remodeling process in an organized and efficient way.

You’ll find all phases are covered, from the physically demanding “dirty work” to rewarding finishing touches. Professional contractor Roger German covers basic construction techniques and the special problems associated with basement building, such as moisture, framing against concrete, and plumbing for bathrooms and laundry rooms.

  • Provides in-depth, pro-level advice, including tips, trade secrets, and what to do when something goes wrong

  • Gives photos of finished projects help you visualize the possibilities in a basement remodel

  • Shows how to deal with common challenges in basement building: moisture, framing on concrete, evacuating water, working around heating and plumbing fixtures

  • Covers a variety of spaces: family rooms, bathrooms, laundry rooms, workshops and hobby rooms
