Make a long story short:…
End of Dec. 07 I made an offer on a short sale townhome. Great place! 24’x15’ unfinished walkout basement w/ 9ft ceilings! Oh yeah, the rest of the townhome was good too… I waited 16 weeks to hear back from Country Wide if the accepted my offer. Needless to say I didn’t hear back in time and the place got forclosed and sold to an REO. %^%^#%^%^# 16 fuckn weeks!
So, I’m back to square 1 looking for a place to buy. Ideally I’d like to find something with an unfinished basement to build a serious gym. But I’m now leaning towards a house VS townhome. Currently can’t find any homes in my area w/ unfinished basements that I’d be interested in buying. All the ones w/ unfinished basements are 30+ yrs old or having “TLC problems”.
Alot of places that interest me have finished basements. Not ideal for a gym IMHO, but better for home ownership and resale etc…
So Im curious on converting the garage to a gym. Living in MN it gets cold from Nov-April. And If I want to train comfortably I assume I would need to insulate and drywall the garage? And need some kind of heater?
Does anyone have any experiance with doing this? Difficulty level? Cost? And what kind of heater would I need? Just curious on the total cost to do this.
