Even the best books can’t clearly explain everything. When you buy this book you also get exclusive access to the the world’s only first person, high definition, step-by-step, basement finishing videos.
Each video was designed with you in mind. I don’t assume you know anything. So I don’t skip any steps. Do you know how to use a framing gun? Maybe, maybe not. I know I didn’t. Those things scared the crap out of me. So I have a video for that.Don’t worry these are not 4 hour Lord of the Rings videos – that would be a total waste of basement finishing time. I carefully scripted each one to hit the major sticking points.
For the next couple of weeks I’m including them with the book at a reduced price as I’m still finishing up the series. Once you’ve purchased you’re in for life. You’ll get any and all future videos for free, the minute they go live.
6 months of labor. Blood, man-sweat and tears. Not real tears, there was something in my eye.
I took a screen shot of the indexes pages – You can see all of the chapters.
Plus, any future chapters are yours for free. You only have to buy the book once – you can download the latest version whenever you want.
“This book engaged me, and I read it in two mornings. Your book was fun to read! Your writing was clear and detailed, and funny!ALSO, most importantly, I love that there are parts of the book that stand on their own, for all kinds of projects. Tiling, hanging doors, building walls, etc. All of these sections are helpful on their own.
FOR ALL HOMEOWNERS Your book makes me want to get up and start a project!”
“Jason’s book is packed with amazing advice on how to finish your basement. It’s not like your ordinary do it yourself guide. He shares tips and tricks from his own personal experiences and makes the reading very entertaining. I love the pictures and formatting the book contains. They really make the book easy to understand and follow.
Seriously, the book is fantastic, funny and I can’t recommend it enough for any homeowner.
Great job Jason!”
As See On T.V., kind of…
Sure, not traditional Bill Cosby, Cheers, Seinfield TV. But I was interviewed on a really cool live stream web cast called ‘Down and Dirty’.
This web cast has 4.5 million listeners each week. Check out the video, they show a couple pictures of my basement under construction.
Yes, that was the first time I’ve been on any sort of broadcast. Except once when I was two, my Dad was a DJ and put me on the air for a few words. No, I don’t remember what I said.
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 do the drywall as well by 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.
Yes! 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 to 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!!! 20,000 people per month visit the website and I have countless emails from people telling me that they are well underway with finishing their basement on their own.
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 started 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 to 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.
