Now that the staircase is finished enough to make it easy to get up and down the stairs, we can now lug more drywall to the basement with ease.
I’m using mold and moisture resistant drywall down here. Not sure why, because the humidity level in the basement is no different that the rest of the house. I’m using 4X8 sheets for the walls – that’s because that’s the largest size I can handle by myself.
I had to make one more bulkhead by the electrical boxes to hide plumbing. I’ll figure out something to hide the breaker boxes.
Then continue along the walls and into the mechanical room and my little workshop. (I still have the 4 car garage to play in…so far). That mess of cat5e and coax cables are a job when my sawdust making period is over.
I use a raking light to check for drywall divots before the primer goes on.
Then the first coat of paint goes on – it’s BM Moonlight White – I think. The ceilings are being done by a drywall guy I know. They use 12′ sheets – it will save my back and will look better than I could do.
While I wait for the ceiling guy, I’ll finish up the framing for the whirlpool tub.
And the framing and Kerdi Board prep is done for the steam shower.
See? Some things are looking finished – well, if you don’t look up, that is.
Pay attention now, I’m sure something pretty will pop up sooner or later.
