Basement Day 3

by Waterman981  

Yesterday the framing crew finished up. I did a walk though with the contractor and only found a handful of things to fix.

Then the HVAC crew came in and put in most of the vents. (We had to block them off as our upstairs wasn't cooling off properly in the afternoon... I'm guessing we'll be doing some type of zoning before sheetrock... yet more money.)

And they put in the returns, and in the process destroyed the sound wall between the bathroom and the theater.

At first I was just worried about the 4 gang box I'll need for the graphic eye I plan to install for the theater in the future. Then I thought more about it... I can't insulate it, so it's a hollow cavity, thus amplifying any sound. Then I realized with the whisper clips and channel to hang the drywall, it won't be a closed space anyway and completely pointless.

So they will end up fixing that wall back to a 2x6 staggered stud wall, until I'm happy. HVAC guys should finish the last vents today, and the plumber was supposed to start today as well, busting up concrete to move the drains, and possibly running the new lines for the water.

Also, we finally got our strawberries planted over the weekend!

Fencing, YAY!

No work on the basement today, but the fence returns installation was finished! Yay!

Thomas was awfully happy tonight... I don't think he realizes the fence is the end of his freedom! Bwahahahahaha!

And to better help you visualize it, here are the basic floor plans.

No idea when the basement crew comes back... When they do I'll post the progress!

Basement - Day 2

It looks like they kept going today.... until they ran out of studs. And woot, the staggered wall is coming along!

Basement construction - Day 1

by Waterman981  

Framing crew came in today and pounded out a bunch of the framing. One more day definitely to finish it. I'm excited with how big the closet for my office turned out... Although because it is so big I'm going to have to put a light in there. Darn.

Tommy is becoming such a big boy... and definitely a two year old.

Busy weekend

by Waterman981  

This was a crazy busy weekend... We had to finish emptying the basement before construction starts! We had a LOT of crap down there. We ended up loosely packing boxes just to get it done. Huge thanks to Katie's brothers Andrew and Patrick for coming over to help move the heavy stuff (and the rest of the stuff...) Here it is mostly empty... Fun starts in the morning.

Best interaction ever!

Katie:
"Tommo, I think you made me fat."
Thomas:
"Nope"

Fence time!

by Waterman981  

So time to finally get the fence returns done. The guys came out and got the posts in... Now just need to wait a week for the concrete to cure a bit and they'll put up the gates and fence.

(The other side just has a single post against the house, so it's kinda boring.)
