Default Basement Progress Pictures

I intended, once upon a time, to document the process of finishing my basement. Unfortunately with kids and other commitments, I wasn't able to do a very good job of documenting the project online.

I'm now ready for paint so I took a few pics last night and went back in and grabbed some older pics from a few months ago.

This house is a "Bristol" model by Tamarack, and the recessed box area you see is going to be a bench. This follows the fairly typical design of what Tamarack does in their Bristol basements, but I went a bit more "Mike Holmes'y".

The basement floor is the Barricade subfloor (installed by me), the framing is Bluwood (installed by me), the spray foam is by a company here in Kingston called EcoComfort, and the drywall and mudding were done by friends of friends who are in the trade of hanging/mudding. Needless to say the drywall was put up in a day and the mud was done by a pro, so both were done faster and better than anything I would have attempted.

This is my second basement, and I obtained permits this time. I'm not a pro, but I would say a more than capable DIY'er. If anyone has any questions about anything or can borrow an idea or two please feel free to ask and borrow!

Oh, the spray foam only runs from the bottom of the steps around to the furnace room covering 99% of the finished area. Only the wall the bench is on (the garage wall) is stuck with the builder junk
