    I want to finish my basement. Headroom is not an issue as it is ten
    feet from the dirt floor up to the bottom of my first floor joists.

    Would it be better (and or cheaper) to "build" a floor similar to my
    first floor floor (joists, sheathing, ...) or to pour a concrete slab.
    The floor covering will be carpet.

    The "wood" floor I would build myself, the concrete floor I would have
    to pay for labor and materials.

    The basement is approximately 25' x 12'. The basement walls are
    concrete block filled with concrete and rebar and coated with Quikwall
    surface bonding cement.
