Basement Progress

Our basement is now now mudded and tapped. Next step.. lots of primer and paint. 

To be followed by doors, tile, carpet, trim, cabinetry, furniture and on and on... We are so excited for the end result and the added 1,100 sq feet of living space!
 

And just in case anyone is wondering.. yes we are going to box in the red support poles. That will happen when we get to the trim and detail.
When I need reminding how far we have already come, I look at the BEFORE pics...

This is awesome!!! What is the section behind the half walls/pillars going to be? An exercize section?

Good luck as you move into the next phase!

Hi There!
I was coming over to thank you for being my newest follower and found your amazing basement! You have come SO far! I long for a basement, but live on a slab. We really didn't have time to look for a house with a basement...we had something like 24 hours to find our home. (long drawn out story...urgh!) Oh well, we love our home, but I still crave basement space. :) Yours looks like it's going to be a great place to hang out...can't wait to see more. :)
Thanks again for being a follower!
Missy :)
