I'm with Scott.

I was cleaning up an attic over one of my garages and I tried the "not 
removing everything" method.  I think I moved each item at least 3 times, 
plus, I didn't get it as perfectly organized as I should have.  If there 
is too much stuff to remove, then why worry about leveling it?  Chances 
are you can't see much of the floor! 8>)
I just helped a friend locate a 20X8 sea container at his house so he can 
empty one room at a time and clean and organize.  I'll more than likely 
buy the container from him when he is done.  I was impressed with how 
cheap they can be had for.

I did use some autoleveling concrete stuff a while back, it was expensive, 
but it is still perfect!

Re: [Shop-talk] Flooring for uneven basement?

It's probably not the answer you want, but I'd empty the basement and do 
it 'right'.  Grand down (or break up) the high spots and use 
self-leveler to do the rest.  That sounds like something that could very 
quickly turn bad if you don't bite the bullet and do it right the first
