Basement Remodel : Week 6

Basement Remodel : Week 2 | Deuce Cities Henhouse
Hey Guys! Sorry, I’ve been a little MIA lately. We were on a family vacay and I was very much phoning it in for the last few weeks. I haven’t been a good poster, or comment responder, or blogger in general – but don’t worry, those days are over.

Alright, so I went away for two weeks and got to come back to a drywalled basement! It is really starting to look so real. The excitement within me is brimming over.

I know a lot of this basement series has been pretty redundant, but the hanging of the sheetrock has been a real game changer. The pics are now changing from ugly dark basement shots to photos of actual real-deal spaces filled with light, and design, and all that good stuff.

So here’s a few kinda pretty pics of the progress:

Can you see it, guys? The guts of the room are now filled in. We have a designated TV area that was built out of from the nook that was there before. That nook is the foundation of our dining room bay window (for point of ref).

The bathroom is totally plumbed in! I’ll be tackling the bathroom as the budget allows throughout the winter. However, I did have to have a complete plan in place for the roughing in of the plumbing. I am most excited for that Brockway sink to be installed. Once our kids become pre-teens they will be using the bathroom on the daily. The double sink will work well for them when they are shaving their peach fuzz.

The “hallway” is becoming realized. All of this will be lined with built-in cabinetry that I will take-on installing later this summer.

Here’s the “hallway” again, this time you’re looking at it from the base of the stairs.

TV and media zones all wired for sounds and down with whatever. This will be the perfect hang spot for winter hibernaish.

    I’m trying not to ooze with too much jealousy but oh my goods. My basement is currently dark knotty pine, asbestos tile and general creepiness. Everytime I see your tree wall paper I swoon. Can’t wait to see the final product! Also…how are those flowers and plants doing? Are they recovering?

      Oh no, I feel your pain, ours was rough too. I can’t wait to see it all come together either!

    Thanks for keeping the basement updates coming! No detail is too small for me, I’m planning my own now and I love what you are doing. It’s really interesting to see the steps! Thx!

      I’m glad you like them! If this wasn’t my blog, and it was someone else’s, I would like to see them too.
