This is what my basement looked like up to this past Wednesday, the day Fred started on it. The only difference is all of the stuff piled up in the corners, along with about 10 industrial sized garbage bags of stuff was piled in the middle of the floor. I went through the basement Tuesday night. Troy took all of the bulk trash to the garbage and I threw everything that I haven't seen in the past year in the garbage, hence the reason I had 10 extra big garbage bags. It felt so good to get rid of all of that clutter!!!
The ceiling will be a drop ceiling and with recessed lighting by the time everything is said and done.
You can get a glimpse of what will be the laundry room on the left and another storage area on the right.
This is what the staircase looked like- he started working on this first. They're going to be encased and the backs closed and then carpeted.
