Absolutly, It's exciting! Working from scratch theres alot of possibilities. I've really tried to think out and plan what would be best for us for the complete use of space aswell as what a future buyer would be happy with If I sold the house in 10 years.

I Just picked up a few Large Poster Frames and some smaller 8x10 and 11x14 frames to fill the walls with. I've Been going over artwork and picked up a few Posters off Ebay. I was going to print a few pics off for the smaller frames, Got 3 done and now my printer say's F'U' Buddy for recognizing the ink cartridge. So I have a new one coming in from Staples... But I may just print off what I want at Walmart.

Nice work!
Are you doing a subfloor? I know it ain't cheap but in our climate it is well worth it especially if you are laying down something other than carpet.

I was going to because I was originally going to do a rubber matting kinda floor for the exercise area, but then we decided to carpet the whole thing in case of resale we figured it might show better and also work well for a home office setup later on... So after talking to people I was a little concerned that if we had any kind of flooding that the sub floor would hide it and cause more damage in the long run. However we are getting a thick pile and heavy underlay so the temp should be fairly good all year round

Did a Popcorn ceiling yesterday, At first I wan't sure it was going to turn out very good but I went down today after it's dried and it turned out great. amazing what $40 in mud and a sprayer rental can do.

Finished cleaning the walls off from my incredible mess; and Fixed up some of the drywall joints that needed a bit more mud to smooth out. I need to fix my riser before doing anything else and then hopefully I can get all the painting done this weekend.

Nice choice, should be cozy in the winter and cool in the summer, perfect. You may have a hard time leaving the basement, I know I would.

Nice job so far, looking really good. You might want to think about a 50 oz or higher carpet in a basement. Most contractors recommend this. Just a tip i wanted to share.

Thanks, The carpet I ordered is a 35oz stainmaster with a 10 year wear warranty. It has a fairly descent pile, and was the thickest I was willing to get since I have allergies.

I am very very envious of this project. I guess Basements are hard to come by here in Oklahoma or I would be doing the exact same thing as you!

Keep at man. It's coming along great!

Had a chance to get my speakers installed for 7.1 setup also some of the other stuff with the ceiling done; plus I finished off the riser. Just swept up and cleaned my mess. Ready to paint this weekend... I also picked up 200' of Baseboards and a closet door for the under the stairs area. Hopefully Lowes gets the carpet done early next week still waiting to here for a booking.....

You're moving at a really great pace... good for you man. I like the textured ceiling, if that was DIY then I think you did a great job.

Yeah it was my first time doing it. like I mentioned earlier it was only $60 total for the mix and rental of the sprayer. I was covered in mixing compound. stuff get's everywhere. Before it dried I didn't think it was going to turn out well but now that it's cured I think it worked out.

Absolutely great progression. So wish I had a basement. Great job! Look forward to seeing more of your progress.

So I was able to get a lot done this weekend. got the majority of the painting done, installed most of the wall plates, I got the projector mounted. I'll need to fix up a bit around that glass.... The glass was 1/4" to big for my opening, either that or my opening was to small. Depends on how you look at it lol.. by the time I was done messing with it I decided to make it fit using thug method ( i.e. giant mallet ) I was also able to get the projector screen up, got my tv wall mounted for the workout area. The carpet is going in today if Lowes shows up anytime soon, 8-10am and it's 9:35am. just like the cable company. glad I got up super early on a day I'm off.



Swapped out a single light for this 3 light vanity set, thought it was a little more stylish and brighter for the stairway



used 25watt bulbs in the two lights that will sit behind the chairs to provide a low level of ambient lighting in case I don't want to be completely in the dark without being overpowering to the room.



I was able to find the glass I used for separating the two rooms from a reclaim building store for $30. I wasn't sure I liked the lined frosted area's when I was looking but it works I think.




I am going to be putting a white casing around both the glass area and around the media rack.






Wired in My 7.1, Glad I went with a full plate. Originally I was just going to feed all the wiring in threw an open plate and be lazy..







Giant 60" 250lb slab of granite waiting for the Cabinet to sit on and hopefully never move again lol....
