I gotta get a bigger house with a full basement and 9' ceilings. :-)
Note how his woodshop is hidden behind the saw mill storefront, and the
hiding of his storage in hidden cabinets all over the storefronts.
BTW, Mike Rose (former host of "Dirty Jobs") looks funny all cleaned up. :-)
I have worked in a number of basement shops. They all were stone age caves
compared to what this guy did with his basement. Incredible! Obviously
skilled and motivated. With too much time on his hands! It is nice though.
I keep thinking of how it adds or subtracts from the value of his house.
About the time he gets it finished, he will be moving to that big workshop
in the sky. Not that it matters all that much. He did it because he
enjoyed it. That is good enough reason for anybody.
I would think that it adds to the value.
Imagine some prospective buyers checking out the house and going through
all the rooms upstairs with comments like, 'this room is too small', or
'these fixtures are old', etc., then going down to the basement.
The only real worry I would have is flooding, whether internal or external.
Isn't "Incredible Basements" on right after "Restful Bathrooms" on one
of the 500 outstanding, must-see channels on teevee?
No wonder the rest of the world thinks us nuts...
A sound mind in a sound body is a short but full description
of a happy state in this world.
