The trim work is the basement is nearly finished. The bathroom tile has yet to be finished as not enough decorative tiles were ordered for the design in the floor. So the bathroom floor is on hold until the additional tiles arrive – hopefully next week sometime. In the meantime, the lower cabinets have been set. The entertainment center cabinets are set and holes were drilled in the top of each cabinet as well as a connector hole between the two cabinets to allow for wire passage. Each shelf was also modified by drilling a 2.5 ” hole in the shelf to allow for wire and cabling.
The fusebox and water meter area have been trimmed out with nice doors. The shadow box trim area was completed. Finally the railing for the lower stairs was added.
This weekend the acoustical ceiling is being installed. Then the upper cabinets can be mounted. Carpeting has been delayed until Oct. 5th to hopefully allow the bathroom floor and plumbing to be completed before the carpet arrives. Painting should start sometime next week as well.
The screen will be installed October 15th and by that date everything should be up and running – Hopefully!!
Here are some pictures of the latest improvements.

View of the shadowbox area and the small hall closet door on the left. I am not sure I am crazy by the railing on the stairs – maybe it will grow on me?

The windows have been trimmed out and the fusebox covered. The cabinets on the floor are the upper cabinets that will be mounted once the acoustical ceiling is installed. The box to the left covers the sump pump and provides an access panel to it.
The mounted lower cabinets. The countertop will be measured this Thursday. It will be Silstone Mahogany. The whirlpool refrigerator will be installed to the right of the cabinets.
