Basement Update #8675309

Family room looking at the wall where the entertainment center will go and where the 12' movie screen drops down.
 Other side of the family room where the kitchenette is going to be.
Cold storage room
 Hallway and stairs to main level.  Closet for under stairs.
 Hallway bathroom
Dan's office
Laundry/Craft/Flower room

Inspection done - crossing my fingers that drywall will be here next week!  Can you believe Dan has done this all by himself?  My dad has helped a lot too.  We were originally quoted about $45k to have this done.  We haven't even spent 1/4 of that!
(Which is great since we didn't have that kind of mula.)
I am one happy girl to have almost 1300 more square feet of house to live in!

It is looking so good! We have begun hanging drywall! Can't wait for our basement to be finished as well! :)

Thank goodness for Hubby's who are handy! Sounds like we have both saved some money!

Your husband is doing a FABULOUS job. Are you even having arched door ways? You are a lucky girl.

Now that's a basement. 12' drop down projection screen. Jealous! It's going to be so nice when it's done. Can't wait to see how it progresses.
