Framing 2 concrete posts in middle of basement


To keep the CMU posts as small as possible and avoid future mold consider adding plaster directly to them.

That idea sounds good too. To add plaster.
But how nice would that look?

And could I get it to be real smooth?

Round this neck of the wood people do something called parging. Read obout that here.

Its not plaster but still can look nice and can be painted when completely dry.

Doing a good job. Ceiling up, soffit covered, walls about 30% done and moving quickly.

I'm jealous.

Will you be painting it yourself, and doing trim, etc.?
