Learn how to turn a plain old basement into a fantastic living space.

He’ll then demonstrate the best way to install ceilings that hide wires and plumbing, provide tips and tricks for hiding structural posts and mechanicals and explore the fire-blocking insulation and inspection details you need to be aware of. Finally, he’ll show you techniques for creating as much usable designed space as possible, including incorporating a barn door as a space saving option.

What You'll Learn:

  • Framing options for hiding duct work, structural posts, mechanicals, plumbing and fast-fire blocking.
  • Trim tips and techniques.
  • Sound deadening options.
  • Incorporating a barn door.
