Georgia Townhouse Gets Basement Makeover

In this episode, the Today’s Homeowner crew helps homeowner Martine Swain, who won our ‘Win Danny and His Crew 2019’ Contest.

Some of the projects we cover include:
• Waterproof two cinderblock walls
• Install drywall
• Build shelving unit
• Replace electrical outlets


  1. Danny, I need your help. We built a new house in 2006. We found a builder using our local family owned lumber company, however our builder took off before finishing the house.

    We need to insulate our cellar so that we can get a certificate of occupancy. My husband and I will be installing the insulation. A friend advised us that the easiest way to insulate our cellar is to use blanket insulation. What is this and where can I get it.

    Thank you,

    Marj Jones

    • Hi, Marj,
      Blanket is the most common type of insulation on the market.
      It’s the kind that comes in batts and rolls (hence its name).
      There are many varieties, but we recommend mineral wool insulation, which is available at your local home center.
      Thanks for your question!
