The last 'room' in the basement...

 Here's the room Dave has been working on, building a closet in it for his work clothes, putting insulation and osb on the walls....

 Inside the closet while I was painting it (a couple of weeks ago)

 You can see the newly built closet in these pics...

 OSB on all of the walls...
 including up the stairs.
 A peek inside the closet.  Don't hate, those are all his clothes and shoes, except for one rod on the bottom left for my summer shirts.

 This picture gives you an idea of where we are working.  You can see the door to this room leads into our bathroom, and living area.
 And I've been using the pantry. 
 We both spent the last two days priming and painting this room.

 TA DAAA the painting is finished.
Next we need to put trim up around the door and along the floor.  It's a basement, it's not a room we'll ever really use, but I have some ideas of what I want to do with it once we get moved upstairs.  And guess what....when we get this done, and finish with the molding and trim on the stairs, we will be working upstairs!  I am SO excited.


  1. Okay; me and mr foresterman were talking about this room - we have questions...why osb? how do you prime it so its smooth enough to paint? do you skim a coat of joint compound over it? do you worry about moisture at all, or is it a different duck in that regard? inquiring minds want to know!

  2. I bet you go through a lot of paint with the OSB... I also think it may be an rather unpleasant task!

  3. WEll it does look nice and very liveable:::downthere:::someday somebody just might live down there when you move upstairs:::can't wait to see progress upstairs::::
    good luck
