What sections of this project can I do?
You can do 100% of the framing. About 95% of the electrical (YES!). You can do 100% of the plumbing. You can install the drywall as well but I don't recommend it, find out why in the book!
What about Permits? Are those hard to get?
You can get your own permits and you will pass all of your inspections on your own. Even if you hire a contractor you can save $500 by pulling your own permits!
What about tools? - I don't have any?
In the book I'll cover exactly what you need to buy and why, plus when you need it. You don't have to buy all the tools up front. You don't have to buy the super professional expensive grade either, I'll show you where the value is. With the money you'll save finishing your own basement the cost of tools is minuscule. Plus, you keep them for life!
Do I need 2 or 3 people? My significant other isn't real keen on helping out.
No! With the exception of a few steps you can do 95% of the work completely solo. There are several tips in the book on how to work on your own. Think… clamps,tool-belts and Carty! I explain Carty in the book. I actually preferred to work on my own and found it to be faster.
I've never been good at home improvement, isn't this too big of a project?
Oh man, that was exactly what I thought. The answer is no, It isn't too big. You are smart, you can solve problems. With the right guide to help you through the rough spots you'll be a DIY expert within 6 months.
Do people really do this?
Absolutely!!! 60,000 people per month visit this website and I have countless emails from people telling me that they finished their basement on their own after starting from scratch.
How do I even start? What if I spend a bunch of money and can't do it.
The book starts you off with starter projects (makes sense right). You only buy the tools and materials you need for the first couple of starter projects (and it's not that much). As those wrap up you start to move into the bigger phases of finishing your basement. Only then do you start to buy more tools, lumber, etc. Plus, the starter projects are something you can use right away, even if you put the entire basement project on hold.
Save at least $357 Dollars when Buying ToolsI'm going to show which tools and tool features you'll need as a homeowner to finish your basement. Some tools you'll want to buy the absolute best version (the professional premium version). For others you can save a lot of money by going with the home-owner grade. Do you need to the $210 framing gun or the $80 gun? Some tools you'll really want to pay extra for that laser guiding thing-a-ma-jig. For others, it's a total waste of money for what we're doing.
Save $641 during the Electrical PhaseWhether you do it yourself or go with a contractor I'm going to show you how to save over $600 during your electrical phase. If you and I both walk into Home Depot to buy all the electrical supplies for our basement, I'm walking out about $600 richer than you. AND WE HAVE THE EXACT SAME STUFF!
