Most people think a basement remodel is one of the easiest home remodeling projects to complete. More typically, it is actually one of the more complex projects. Basements often have water and drainage problems, inadequate ceiling heights, old sloping concrete floor slabs, no insulation, and no easy way to connect the plumbing. Additionally, most people expect the basement to serve many purposes: often the basement is designed to accommodate work and play, media rooms, storage and craft areas, and many other uses. So unless you are looking for a simple, one-room remodel, be prepared to address a number of challenges.
