Hi all,
We just bought a new home and want to finish the basement. It has a concrete floor, a sump pump, a bath rough-in, and I am assuming insulation(behind some silver cover). The layout we want is similar to that of the model. The rec room will be about 23'x12' and the bedroom will be about 12'x14'.
I have no clue where to start. I am assuming we have to frame and the drywall? Is someone willing to hold my hand on this one?
You can see the diagram of the basement here: http://www.xdrive.com/share/96712983...AVlWKrH89erJR4

I don't think it's possible to guide you through a project of this magnitude on a web site. Get a book -- many excellent basement finishing books are available. Your library probably has several.

P.S. I just passed my basement finish final inspection yesterday after 3 months of planning, and more than 17 months of work! I did 100% of the work myself (framing, windows, heating, plumbing, electrical, insulation, drywall, shelving, doors, painting, tiling, flooring).
