Stepping Up the Basement

John and Colleen Rauscher's 1970s basement is holding their $265,000 house back. With an $8,000 budget and the help of host Amy Matthews, they roll up their sleeves and bring the basement back to the future. With their livable space doubled, how much will their home value increase?
