How to Finish a Basement the Right Way: An Online Video Course

Thank you, and welcome to the world’s most complete course on finishing (or refinishing) a basement! As a paid learner on this course you’ll have unlimited access to the information on all the web pages coming up, plus the six computer files that contain the downloadable version of this course.

An important part of this course involves email access to ask me questions and work out design strategies for your particular basements. Each basement situation is unique, so keep my email address on hand: [email protected]. For now, let’s get started with the course . . .


“Bilbo lives in a comfortable hole in the ground, not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”

– J.R.R. Tolkien from The Hobbit
