Update on my basement

Here's a view from the entry showing what the framers who came on Wednesday and the electrician who came yesterday accomplished. Very soon you won't be able to see the big gaping hole behind the wall because today the sheet rockers will be here. That's when the BIG difference will be obvious. See the "square" in the framing? This is so someone can easily get to the pipes should there be another problem in the future. I see it as potential space for keeping "stuff."

Here is most of the west wall, showing my two new electrical outlets and the new light switch.

Lo and behold!! There is now a light in the soffit where before there was none. This will really help to lighten the room when I'm working there.

See all the extra light I get from just one canister light? I'm jumping for joy because I didn't have this before.

A view from further back showing the north west corner of the room. Isn't this amazing? It really will be a new room.

this is a HUGE space!!!
even though you are going through quite the stress with the changes and cleanup
the new and improved setting will sure be very enjoyed
from this point the process can go kind of fast too...you are finishing...not building
how long do they estimate?

Awesome! You are going to have such a great workspace. That light makes a huge difference!
