Almost Finished!

Since I have been sharing the ongoing condition of our basement project, I thought it was a good time to share another picture of where we are in the process. This is actually a nearly finished basement refinishing job. We have ordered carpet and it should be put in this week or early next. I painted the new stairs Monday and the only things left to be done are putting one inch corner molding under the stairs (See the white line of the dry wall? It's to cover that.), put the hand rail on, and we still have a small area in the back part that has to have a drop ceiling put in. Of course, I have to clean up some more before the carpet is put in and we won't put the floor molding in until the carpet is down too. So, we should still be on target to have it all finished within a week or so. Of course, both of the storerooms in the basement have everything in them covered in a white dry wall dust. Who knows how long it will be before we get that all cleaned up. But at least the rec-area will be usable when everyone is here for the play next week, and that's the reason we wanted to have it in the first place. More room for family and friends!

The next pictures should be of the totally finished basement. The carpet is a lighter brown than the stairs. Darker than tan but not like too dark. I think it's call toffee.

Wow, it looks great! I can't wait to see it in person. So, how exactly do you paint the steps without painting yourself into the basement? Do you have to paint from the bottom step up? That seems like it would be difficult.

COOL!! I must say, that's the cleanest worksite I've ever seen.

Mmmmm, toffee carpet...reminds me of coffee...and a piece of pie...(Wow, I think I'm ready to come and see you and Mom!!)
