It's been a long year and a half since I started my basement remodel aka HT v2.0 but things are finally starting to come together. Thought I'd share my progress as I finish it off.

Quick look back at the blank slate:



Looking back at the same general direction today. Just got done laying the backerboard for the tile we're putting in the bathroom and bar area:


Also got done with the laminet floor in my computer room and kids playroom:


Here is a quick look at the actual HT room, where the TV will be going (I've since primed the walls):



I'll post some more pics once I get the trim up and painting going. On so many levels I can't wait for this to be done. I've gone over 2 years now without a real HT.


For anyone bored you can see a lot more pictures of the progress here

Coming along nicely Ben. Slow and steady...
BTW, isn't it great having those engineered 'braced' style floor joists for running cable in the ceiling? No hole drilling, easy to change routing if needed etc

That's shaping up nicely. The way I paint, I'd have done the walls and trim before the finished floor went down. Hopefully, you're less clumsy than I am.


I started out with nothing & I've still got most of it left

I do like these joists thou finding spots for my recessed lighting was a challenge since all the HVAC is up in there.

The wife didn't want any quarter round so we decided it would just be easiest to install the floor before the trim. I completely covered/taped the laminemt flooring before we painted the two rooms. I'll definitely have all the painting done before I have the carpet installed.

I had submitted an application to refinance our mortgage to a lower rate, didn't think about the basement project... our credit union wants the basement done before they send out the appraiser. Ugh, while I think I could get this all done in 30days not sure I'd want to rush it.

Ben, looks quite reasonable; not at all inane.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

I wasn't charged for the refinance application so I just told them cancel it and I'll try again once I get this basement put together. I sorta rushed it at the end when I we remodeled the basement at our last house, promised myself I wouldn't this time.

That said I am itching to start utilizing some of the space. We got my computer room all painted, just waiting for my computer desk (really just a custom counter top) to get completed and I need to order our ceiling tiles. I think I'm going to move my current "computer desk" aka a folding table from the spare bedroom upstairs into it. The wife has turned my space into a storage room so I feel the need to flee!

Computer "desk" will go here


Playroom for our girls with a door for rear access to my equipment cabinet (I even prewired it for a TV):

I find the finishing work to be teadous... installing plugs and other outlets is slow and painful on the hands, but it's done in the computer room!



Also picked up all the tile for the bathroom & bar area (~170 sq ft). My knees are so gonna hate me.
