Just bought an old house. One half of the basement has a nice headroom. The floor is painted concrete, and is pretty uneven and ultimately slopes towards a floor drain.
I'd like a nice floor. Can I make a "frame" where I can lay perfectly level plywood on, so I can lay perfectly leveled laminate floors (or large tiles) on top?
What will happen to the concrete below? Will it condense, and if it does, should it matter because my floor is now "raised?"
Is it a practical idea, considering money and effort involved? Or are there better/easier options?
By the way, I live in Canada. We have Winter over here :)
