How do we do a self remodeling project on our basement?
This is our first home so we know nothing about remodeling or having a finished basement. We would love to do this ourselves because all of our funds have been exhausted pretty much, so hiring contractors would be out of the question. What would be the first thing to get to start the project. We just want to put up walls and partition off sections.

Check with your insurance company, as well. Some do not provide coverage for finished basements, in event of flooding, etc. Check with your municipality to make sure you aren't required to have a permit.
