Basement Finishing


Thanks for the ideas folks!

I think i will try a combination of them in some small areas and see if I can visualize how it will look.

I appreciate your thoughts!

Basement Finishing


I do not see any reason why you need to cut the Knotty Pine at all. Simply nail a 2x4 perpendicular to, and into the floor joists, with its front face flush with the Knotty Pine. Then put a decorative edge on one edge of a 1 x 8 or 1 x 10 or whatever you need to cover down, Pre-paint it semi-gloss whatever you want, and nail it up to the aforementioned 2 x 4 with mitered ends to hide the joints. and to the face of the Knotty pine. For more support, You can stack 2 2x4's. I would wash down that knotty pine with TSP to clean it up first. Finish the ceiling by Furring out the ceiling with 1 x 3's and drywall it, or put up acoustic tile. That is actual T&G Knotty Pine, not "Paneling" is it not?

Yes, it is roughly 3/4 inch thick knotty pine tongue and groove.
