Basement Remodel - July Update

Lots of progress was made on the space while we were on vacation. It's amazing to me how adding a few walls and drywall makes rooms look bigger than you thought they were.

The back wall is looking lovely. The drop ceiling is installed. The wiring for the projector is in place and the corner built in is looking fine.
The TV wall and closet are making progress. We won't have to buy a screen for the projector. Rob's master carpenter can make the wall look and act like a screen. That will be cool.
The fridge and counter top space are closed in. Now we need to find a fridge. We already have a sink.
Now, onto my favorite part of the remodel: my storage room. All of the cabinetry is custom built for me. I have one full wall of storage. These are part of the upper cabinets and open cubbies. There is one more cabinet to the right.
The lower part of the storage wall with a cabinet to the right that holds a sliding trash can.
Our "winter" closet for storing winter coats, boots, suitcases, etc.
And, one more cubby unit for holding stuff.
Other than a couple more coats of mudding and moving one light fixture, my storage room is done. Now I can begin unpacking the remaining boxes and deciding what will stay, what will be donated and what will be hit the dumpster. I will also be able to paint everything in there. I have some cool plans for the space so be sure to check back for updates.

Sweet P
