I didn't even think about paneling, that's not a bad idea. I'm definitely going to consider that. When I start this job, i'll take before and after pictures

If the room is to be used for a bedroom, you need egress: http://www.aacounty.org/IP/Resources...ementGuide.pdf

The room also requires heat, natural light and ventilation. A 3' wide hallway is also the minimum safety code.

Luckily, the room was previously finished, but a drain backed up and the basement flooded and the dry wall and frame had to be ripped down. There is already natural lighting and we need to tap into the duct for heat. The hallway, we are planning will be 3' 7"
