As promised, here is one pick of my starting point in the basement. We had a contractor do the framing and run the electric, a plumber do the bathroom stuff, and I did a bit of HVAC and am planning on doing everything else. I started drywalling Monday evening - it has become my evening job, spending 4-5 hours down there each night. We should be finished with the walls and ready to paint by the middle of next week.
After: (coming soon)
