Much progress was made over the last week and a half by my wife and I. Check out the pics! Time to take a week or so off to cool our heels.

Well there has been more progress on the basement project. I got the cabinets all set but not stained yet. I am saving for the slab on the counter tops so I am not in a huge hurry to get that part done. Since my last post I have all the doors stained and hung. They look rich in color and style. I still need to buy one more door for the small closet area. The bedroom is completed and it looks real nice I think. I will post pics. Now I am working on the theater room. It is now ready for sheet rock as all the cables and what not are run through the walls. More pics to come shortly

Here are a bunch of pictures of the final product. Well close to a final product. I still am going to build a fireplace under the screen that will also house the a/v equipment then topped off with a granite slab to match the other things. There are also a few odds and ins to do such as buy my hanging lights over the bar and the glass table, faucet and pump for the bar, projector mount etc. We were so ready to enjoy the space and catch up on the bills now! The total basement renovation was probably $10-$12,000. Not bad when you do the work yourself!

Special thank you to Scuba Dave and Oh'Mike for all their help on some of the different projects that caused me some grief. Once again thanks to all that gave great input on the project!

just found this thread. day-um that looks nice! starting my own basement project up right now but it isn't nearly as large in scope.

comment about the bar: did you consider a full-size fridge? in-laws have one and it sure is nice. plenty of room for beer/mixers and is handy during the holidays when you need that extra fridge space.

Wow that wood grain tile is really awesome looking, especially with the bright white grout. Nice choice on that and looks like a great tiling job too!
