Finally got the carpet installed today. Its finally almost done after nearly 2 years. The countertop for the bar and the beams will have to wait until I can find a job again which doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon. For the time being we are going ahead and moving in down here. I can just move the furniture when I get ready to cover the beams. I'm moving on to the master bathroom now, I've still got plenty in there I can do for free/cheap. Got plenty of studs left, so that should keep me busy. Its like we got a bigger house today. We have never even sat in this room since we moved in 2 years ago. Same goes for the master bath.

You do nice work. Does your area not require egress windows?

Thanks, not unless the room has a closet,which it doesn't, therefore it doesn't count as a bedroom. It's also a split level home.

I finally got the countertop looks pretty good but the sink had to be moved over, so now I have to remake the drawer. Pretty much done here except for the casing of the beams, and hooking up the internet/phone lines. Stay tuned for my master bath/bedroom remodel.

Excellent work! I wish my drywall mudding/taping looked that smooth.
