My wife and I were really happy when we bought a home.
The basement wasn’t finished, but it had nice concrete flooring.
It was a little dirty, but we were able to clean it up pretty nicely. I was actually thinking about converting the basement into a nice man cave and it was so large and spacious. My wife said I could do that, so long as I left some space for her to do indoor gardening. I had no clue that she wanted to do that, but she did enjoy gardening a lot. She was outside at the start of every spring growing all kinds of things like peppers, carrots, tomatoes, and the list goes on. She also enjoys growing flowers a lot and we even planted a few rose bushes in the house. She told me that in order for her to do her indoor gardening, she would need a nice HVAC system hooked up in the basement. We ended up calling a local HVAC business and consulted with an HVAC expert. The guy said there were a few options we could go for. He personally recommended installing a boiler system and hooking up radiant heated floors in our home. He said some radiators could be installed in the basement, or we could finish the basement also with radiant heated floors. We ended up going for the boiler installation and had the radiators in the basement along with radiant heated floors on the main floors. I honestly can’t believe how cozy those radiant heated floors are and my wife has been doing great with her indoor gardening as the basement keeps nice and toasty now.
