Thank you. I thought your basement was about half that size from the pictures. Keep at it!

Yeah that makes sense. I'm only working on half of it right now so I've only taken picture of half. Once we get that wall supported and the beam sized to make it a half wall it will really open things up.

Well Framing is underway. Here are some pictures of the progress from this weekend.

The framing against the concrete walls are they attached overhead? It looks like they are offset of the joists. What are your door plans? What are you doing for HVAC? Humidity control? Flooring?

Yeah in one spot the top plate was right under a joist. The other walls required some 2x4 blocking but they are all secured now.

Door plans - For now I have a 30" door going into the bathroom, 30" door going into that back room, and a 30" bifold door going into the closet.

HVAC - All of the HVAC was already down there. I do plan on cutting in at least one more cold air return just to get the air moving a little more down there. It tends to get warm a lot faster than upstairs. That coupled with the fact that it is very pleasant down there year round.

I haven't thought about humidity control. We are getting central A/C installed this summer so I'll probably get something installed when that happens.

Flooring for now will be carpet in the two back rooms, tile for the bathroom and engineered hardwood for the rest. We wanted to go with stained concrete but the glue from the carpet previous has proven pretty tough to get up entirely.

Thanks for looking and commenting on the remodel. Any and all ideas are welcome.

Here is a fence I built when we found out we'd be getting a new Lab puppy last summer. It was smart since he's now a 120# lab puppy now!
