Basement Finish with Projector and Media Cabinet


I had my house built about 1.5 years ago and the time has come to finish the basement. I started with the outside last summer (lawn, sprinkler, landscape, garden, etc). I wanted a basement that was useable all year long. I had a big projector screen in mind with a wet bar. I started this project in December 2008, and was on a pace to finish by early spring. With some extras I put in last minute, and a recent job layoff, progress has been minimal.

The basement will add 2 bedrooms (~11x12) and 1 bathroom, as well as the movie room with the eventual wet bar (funds providing). I had to add a sub-panel as my original panel did not accomodate the 6 circuits I added.

Hope you enjoy the pics. This is my first house and my first basement finish.

August 15th, 2009 - installing trim, doors, laminate flooring, and tile(heated) in bathroom.

This is what I started with:

Basement Finish with Projector and Media Cabinet


I dislike the tanish/brownish/yellowish carpet we have upstairs and coming down the stairs (no the blue rug does not belong there...just there to keep my dirty work shoes on and not scratch the floor). I needed something to break between the carpet upstaris and the new whiter/gray shag we are putting downstairs...thought the laminate made a nice flow. The screen is flat white without texture. I asked the tapers to not texture the 110" I drew out, but they decided to add 2 inches, so it is a 112" screen (I was devistated )
