    It has been a long, long journey. I started the basement three years ago. This is the final room.

    Trim taped and painted:





    removing tape:



    One place needed a bit more attention:



    We have 2 furballs. I hid the litterbox behind a wall covering the heater. I could have mounted the door higher, but then it would have been too much of a stepover for the cats... It was easiyh enough to cope the baseboard and finish with caulk.

    The finished window:



    The closet getting a shelf. You can see the laser level which was very useful for many parts of the project, like getting a level ceiling hung.







    Lots of room to spare

    The door through the wall for the cat's pan way my squeeze's idea. I have to say it is one of the coolest little extras the basement has seen.

    Consider this post a heads up for some new pics soon of the finished room with stuff in it. I'm arranging and re-arranging amps and drums and desk parts. I started with a pretty big room and it suddenly shrunk!

    I had to raise the drop ceiling 1 inch to get enough clearance for the shelf and guitars on top. It took me 20 minutes to get the "drop in" fluorescent fixture in there because that 1" gobbled up all of my ceiling wiggle room.

    And while there is room in the closet, I'm finding that room in the room itself is at a premium with all the things I want to stuff in there... pics soon

    Yeah - I'm going to get a couple more of the runners I used on the shelf to protect the floor as I slide cases in and out...

    You need the obligatory Persian rug for the main part of the room.

    I'm sure you've already thought of it, but just in case, a battery back up to the sump pump might be a good insurance policy for all the work you have done.

    I have a wacky rug from IKEA that looks like a cross between a waveform and a Jackson Pollock painting....

    Fortunately our lot is kinda hilltop and well graded. The major action for the sump is the condensation tube from the air conditioner. The next thing I really do have to put in there is a fan for radon. There already is an exit pipe to the roof. Why the builder didn't install the fan is a mystery since he did put in the pipe to vent the fan...

    Looks great... Just one question ... Pink walls????

    I spent a night in a "Pepto Bismol" pink holding cell in Boston once - long story, not very exciting. But to this day I get weirded out by pink walls.

    Crisis averted. No soundbees were harmed during the painting of this room...
