Basement Finish

Dave and Anne Husted set aside $8,000 and target their small, improperly finished basement as an ideal area to add both value and multi-use space to their home. Will a properly finished basement be enough to raise the value of their $295,000 home? With general contractor Adam Berlin helping to maximize each dollar spent, the Husteds save even more money by doing most of the work themselves.
