Finished Basement


Finished basement.

Due to the economy I haven’t had a big job like this in a long time, I’m finishing a basement for a long time client in her condo.

When I get a chance I’ll be posting more photos.

All the condos have unfinished basement .unless it was ordered during the construction, so all exterior walls and ceiling are insulated.

Curved wall down there? Looks like a good one. Basements are among my favorites for enjoyable work

Re: Finished Basement


Considering the temperatures around here are hovering around 20, I’m very happy to be in a comfortable basement, Surrounded by 50 or 60 unfinished basements$$$$.

Hopefully I can convince Leo to build the cabinets for the bar......leo??

I gave him a bunch of money to help me trim out a house. Now I have to work for him to get it back. I recorded the serial numbers to make sure I get the right bills back....

That's how it works, Leo. But it ain't so much about the serial numbers as the denominations...

Slow process waiting for the customer to make a few decisions.
I was able to get the rest of the soffit work done.
