Basement Update: Electrical Complete and Ceiling Lowered

February 10, 2012

Hurrah for today! As of 8:30AM this morning, all the electrical lines were run, the lights and switches are installed, and the ceiling has been lowered to hide the radiator pipes that run below the floor joists of the second floor. All of this means that: WE ARE READY FOR DRYWALL!!!!!

Check out all of the progress on the basement on the Basement Post Page.

After drywall, all that is left is carpet, finish trim, and details (well not really, but lets just pretend for now). We are so close to getting the basement finished I feel it! Some final decisions have come up, like “Should we wire the room for surround sound while we have the chance?” , “what color carpet to pick?”, “should the stair railing match the one upstairs”? I don’t mind all the uncertainty because this is the fun stuff. Designing and decorating the space is the best part. Geoff seems to agree….after I spent months orchestrating this whole project he asked if he could pick out the bathroom floor tile. GASP! Way to steal my thunder Geoff (don’t worry, I still love you). We can certainly pick it out together, but there’s no way I’m giving him full reigns.I deserve some retail therapy (in the form of paint chips and fabric swatches) after all of this work.

Updates next week on the carpet and tiles choices.

    wow, the framework was all done so nicely! I’m excited to see how it turns out πŸ™‚ looks like your basement is going to be a nice space πŸ™‚ and I think the lowered ceiling will be fine, especially since it’s not over the whole basement πŸ™‚

      Well, we did lower it over the whole basement, but we are short……so it’s OK? haha I’m not sure. It doesn’t see too low for me, but I’m only 5’3″.
