What do you do with a large unfinished basement in your cabin? Finish it off with some stained pine siding with warm-colored carpet. This basement was to be used for the grand children and their friends when the adults were upstairs entertaining. The customer wanted the cold floors to be comfortable for the children playing with all their toys. The solution was to heat the floor.
We installed over the slab insulated panels with pex tubing channels. This was covered with a subfloor and then the carpet. This made for an extremely comfortable floor in the colder weather. The ceiling was insulated and the sound channel was used to keep the noise contained in the basement. We decided to go with a sheetrock ceiling to keep the area bright. The kids love to play in the basement now after sliding outside in the snow all day. The electric boiler was installed in a storage room to keep the finished area as open as possible.
