My super husband – who had no drywall experience prior to tackling this project – has done an amazing job with our in progress basement transformation, which we’ve been in various stages of planning/starting for FIVE YEARS!
The good news… is we’re done drywalling, taping and mudding! Thanks to his hard work, figure-it-out-idness (yep that’s a word) and helpful friends/family, we can finish up sanding and be ready to prime and paint.
This (disclaimer: taken a week before finishing mudding – I promise its done!) is looking into the future family room and the doorway in the back will be to our storage room. Both helpers are included with the room – thank God, they have a lot of work to do!
I’m hoping for a built in bookcase/secret passage door. Like this:
But for now, there are a bunch of random things in the middle of the room blocking any good photos of the doorway.
Of course there is SO much more to do… however, I’m grateful that we have ANY progress to report.
I’m so excited about my future “cloffice” – no that’s not me making up words again, it’s a “thing” where you put your office in a closet.
I’m happy to at least have up rough drywall!
This will be in the future guest room (giving us flexibility to make it a room if we need to).
Here… imagine a barn wood or salvage wood accent wall.
For now, I’ve got some drywall dust to clean up. And sawdust.
