What It's About:

Learn how to turn a plain old basement into a fantastic living space. Mark will begin this Builder Clinic by taking you through a process to choose the right framing system—should it be wood, metal or a combination? 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.
