This was a Problem Basement to start with ,Low ceilings, heating ducts, foundation problems - you name it I had it But how do you eat an Elephant?? One bite at a time.   And that's how I approached this job, other then Elect and plumbing I did all the work by myself.

    Sno - WTF! That is incredible! Nice work! Your design? If so (even if it isn't) I'm stealing ideas my friend. Does that ceiling have a curve in it? I love the posts! give us some detailed info on them. Need more info to steal properly!

    Very creative (two thumbs up).

    ugh def been there before with the horror basements. they are a lot of work and for some reason at least where i am from the basement stairs are always 28" or less. god bless bilco doors. good job on ur work. im guessing you curve cut 5/8 ply and used 5/4 cats for ur curve ceiling spots. recessed ceilings in a basement are a lot of work for the electricians and plumber but well worth it for getting the desired ceiling heights. keep on trucking snobnd
