    The basement theatre room is well underway with the framing. Once I know about possible additional built in cabinets and bulkhead for dry bar I will be able to finish the wall framing. Everything is moving along well. The bulkheads will be started next week now that all the ductwork has been  moved. The finish ceiling will look much better.

    Today I finished framing in the 3pc. bathroom and part of the storage / furnace room. I have also re-jigged the central vac piping so that I can install my wall and bulkhead without having to build the bulkhead larger. Tomorrow I will continue framing in the theatre room.

    Here I have started to frame the basement with 2×4 wood studs. I also installed the wood cross bracing as I always do to strengthen the walls seeing as we’re not spray insulating this basement.  I don’t normally frame in front of the insulation but this is what the homeowner has requested to make costs more manageable.

    Here you can see some of the nasty ductwork in this basement. This ductwork runs right in front of the window along with the HRV (heat recovery ventilator pipe). Numerous pipes will be moved to reduce the number of bulkheads required and shrink the ones I cannot eliminate.

    Today I brought in the first load of 2×4 studs for framing. The owners have decided to leave the wrap insulation up in this basement to reduce costs. Numerous hvac venting pipes in the ceiling will be moved to reduce the number and size of the bulkheads.
