Basement Project - Part 1 of 2steemCreated with Sketch.

in diy •  22 days ago  (edited)

Since moving into our new home a little over a year ago, I've been wanting to redo our basement. After several quotes, I opted to save the money and attempt it all myself. I've estimated about $6,000 in savings by doing it myself. Anyway, this is by far the largest project that I've ever tried to tackle on my own and I figured I'd share my progress.

Things left to do - run more electrical, drywall, and install vinyl flooring.

Excited of how it is turning out and I'd be happy to share or elaborate on any of the process so far. Let me know what you think!
