Quick update time. I didn't know what to do with myself with someone else working in the basement so my wife and I have been on a spending spree. We picked out carpet and tile for the bar/bathroom, bought light fixtures, picking up a craigslist fridge this evening, and I am renting a trailer to pick up doors and baseboards tomorrow.
The walls are looking great. The first coat of primer is going up now and color is going up tomorrow. I'm taking some vacation time and my father in law is coming into town to help get to the finish line. Doors, baseboards, and tile going in this weekend and carpet next week if everything goes well.
I'll post some pics tomorrow after the walls are done
