Re: Finished Basement


I might know a guy who could whip up something awesome for that lonely corner, And something special in between the two columns...

Re: Finished Basement


Finally got a chance to install the trim and doors on the project, The best part of this is the majority of the condos do not have finished basements yet...Iím working on it.

The sending of the drywall I decided to use the porter cable and men that ended up being a huge mistake since I donít own one and had to rent it... The head unit had a slight wobble and messed up one of my walls , Three hours today doing my touchups to fix it and do one more lap around the room for the painters with the halogen lamp.

Hey Leo I know you’re busy but if you could rotate the pictures back to where they belong that would be a big help.

Re: Finished Basement


Ceiling tiles are done, started working on the tile for the bathroom floor, I also have to do a 3 x 6 entranceway at the sliding glass door, and a 3 x 3 area for the refrigerator in the hallway ( Because if the refrigerators is next to Leo’s cabinet it then becomes A kitchen and that is illegal)

Re: Finished Basement


What would be illegal about a kitchen in a basement? I'm very confused about this as I do them quite often.
