This was how our old basement looked like when we first bought the house. It was pretty rotten in some areas, especially the bathroom/shower area. We spent few of thousand dollars to fix it up and it was really worth the investment. (Will post the new look soon). It took several days to complete this project. My dad helped me with most of the back-breaking work and my wife and daughter helped with the rest. Below are some pics of what it used to look like before we remodeled.
