My basement is one of the most overlooked areas of the house in our Miami home. It’s also so small that the only way it can get big enough to house all the toys we own, pets we love, and things we have outgrown is via a remodel.
But that’s not all that’s happened recently, because we’ve gone through a major remodel in the basement and in the kitchen, and have moved everything in the house.
The biggest mistake people make when remodeling a room is moving everything in it. In fact, my most common mistake when remodeling a room is moving every last thing in it, because it takes too much time. That is especially true when the space you are remodeling is smaller than the rooms you are moving.
So we want to move everything in the house to a storage room, but we can’t because we need the space in the room to fit a bed. But in every remodeling project there is usually a time when a room will be too small for its new home. That’s when the homeowner will get rid of something that was there, and leave it on the floor. It’s a great way to make a room feel new and exciting.
I have done several remodeling projects where I decided to demolish an old room and replace it with a new one. I had built a beautiful room in the basement of a house I lived in for a long time. I decided to move it into the basement and start over. I tore the room down and built a new room in the same space. I am very happy with the results.
Here is the best part – the building is not only temporary, but it is also reversible.
There are a few downsides to this. It’s not easy to move a large old room and build a new one, and since this is my first time doing it, there is a chance I may have to do it again. Also, it is not just the remodel, but the new room that the new owner will have to deal with. In the end, this is not a bad idea, but I would like to see this idea implemented more.
It is more hassle, not to mention money. A single room is just not that easy to change, and it is even harder to deal with the fact that the new owner will have to deal with the same problem as the old owner. The building will be permanently occupied by the new owner (or renters like me) for one year until a new owner moves in. After that, it will be my responsibility to repair the leaks, repairs, and general upkeep of the space.
This idea comes from another Miami-based company, Miami House. They have a website with a lot of DIY ideas, including how to repurpose a basement. The idea is to repurpose the basement into the same type of space that you want to have as your main living area. It is not just a way to reuse a basement as an office or a home office. It is also a way to make money.
As we learned at the Miami House presentation last night, Miami House is a really cool company. Their philosophy is that in order to be successful, you have to make a product that is innovative and unique. They don’t charge a lot for their services (though they do charge a pretty steep $1,500 for their website), but they do charge for the space that they make available for you.
