I would rather not spare the money when it comes to protecting the expensive equipment that will eventually be stored in the basement. I just want to keep moisture out, heat in and make it look nice. I need any advice I can get as I've never done this before. Thanks a lot!!!
You may want to look into a basement wall system, such as Owens Corning http://franchising.owenscorning.com/bfs/
, or similar. This way you have much easier access to the foundation wall, should you ever need it.
