School can sometimes be annoying, especially when it comes to grading. You can put your heart and soul into a project, and somehow not receive the grade you think you deserved. Some teachers say that a good grade isnt just given to a student who puts a lot of effort into a project, or even a lot of money. While other teachers do appreciate and consider this process in the overall decision about a final grade, at the end of the day its the final product that makes the grade. There are those seemingly tiny details that some students dont even consider, and that is what separates an A from a B. This doesnt just apply to the classroom, but also to home improvements. There are times that you can put a lot of time and effort into a project and it goes absolutely nowhere. Either it doesnt turn out how you had planned, or your plan gets a little fuzzy and even begins to seem a bit unrealistic. Its a shame, but it happens.
Before finishing the basement Finishing a basement is a fantastic idea. At half the price of building an addition on the home and without the loss of yard space, a basement finishing turns the single largest area of empty space in a home into a new living room, family room, game room, basement bar, basement bathroom, mother in laws suite, wine cellar, or anything else that can be imagined for the area. A national average of 75% of the price of the remodeled basement pays back for itself immediately in an increase in the value of the home and by 2010, when the housing market is expected to improve, this payback will be even better. Basements are naturally quiet, private spaces, and finishing them is a fantastic way to accommodate for a growing family.
Why Its Important to Keep Your Basement Dry Many homeowners choose to renovate their basement to make it a usable space. It might become a childs playroom, a spare bedroom, a home office, or a game room. Other homeowners, however, do not need or use their basement, and prefer keeping it as a storage space or simply a part of the house that one simply passes through from time to time. Whether your basement is fully-functional or completely empty, its important to keep it dry at all times. Why For starters, proper sealing helps to protect against possible flooding. Its also important to keep a basement dry because any wetness, dampness, or moisture in a basement can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can cause such health issues as asthma and allergies (as well as more serious concerns).
