'Hallelujah, Holy $hit!' I'm DONE, I'M done, i'm dONe, done, did someway done? (oh, I still need to put in a shower door, but someone else is going to do that for me, but) I'M DONE!!!!
4 years, 3 kids and 1,000 square-feet later I have finally completed my basement project! I've been watching this thread anxious to make my mark and here I am. I did everything but the drywall finish and the main sewer stack relocation.
I hope my pics aren't too big, but I don't care because I'm done. Hopefully you can tell which ones are the before & after

Looking towards the bar on the left and Lounge area in the back:

I had a lot better finishes in mind when I started, but the cost & time got in the way. I was going to have plusher carpet, a rock wall instead of an acid-stained concrete wall, better light fixtures, remote lighting control, and a knock-down plaster finish on the walls. Oh, well - I love it the same.
And now the kicker...... I didn't construct the riser for the second row because we are moving. Our home is to go on the market in about a week.
