The framing is complete in this basement 3pc. bathroom along with the rough in plumbing and the electrical. Today I installed the Permabase cement board in the shower area for future tiling which will be completed at some later date. Notice I always build a base over the shower pan to protect it during the taping stage so there is [...]
The framing along with all the bulkheads are comple ready for drywall. This view shows the nice wide hallway looking towards the gym and theatre area.
All the framing and bulkheads are complete. I am ready to start the drywall this weekend. The theatre room looks great and gives the client a good idea of what the finished area will look like. All the electrical is complete and data cables run.
By Rick on November 5, 2017The 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.
By Rick on November 2, 2017Today 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.
By Rick on November 1, 2017Here 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.
By Rick on October 31, 2017Here 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.
By Rick on October 30, 2017Today 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.
