Insulation is the one basement project that can easily be done on your own. I can't claim that I helped much, but my handy husband finished in a few evenings (about 6-7 hours total work).
We wanted to create more of a sound barrier for the basement so we chose to insulate a big part of the ceiling as well. It ended up costing about $250, but we hope it will be well worth it!
Tomorrow I'll talk about our drywall and texturing! Talk about instantly creating bedrooms! It's a fun transformation and helps to visualize what the final space will look like!
