Like a 6 mil plastic, in those cases it’s so important to put a vapor barrier up first.
Really like that or a basement wall, when you’re covering masonry with drywall, usually you’re dealing with an outside wall.
Here, we have alternative situation. We’re planning to use a trick to attach the drywall that a drywall finisher showed me a few years ago that works perfect in a situation just like this. We carried on preparing to with a midrange brand our contractor recommended.
Light enough that you wouldn’t see all the dog hair, our contractor also recommended we go a shade darker than I wanted to to a decent option for high traffic areas! We had a large rec space and while the ceilings were high, pipes make the space feel small and cavelike.
Therefore the room was divided into four small rooms, when we moved in. Our mechanical equipment, that was in excellent shape, was taking up a bunch of valuable space. That said, this post is part of a series called WD Renovates. We’ll walk you through the ups and downs of our Floor Basement renovation project with McDonald Remodeling. Then, look for the series to continue through the end of 2016 and into 2017! Welcome to the most important part of our remodel. It’s not the most glamorous part of our home,but it’s the part of our remodel that turned this house intoour home. It’s the design decision that made this 1500 sq ft home more than enough spacefor our growing family.
I am sure that the ceilings are the single reason the basement feels more like a family room and less like a basement rec area.
We added a big leather sectional from Article down here for lounging.
The majority of floor pillows make the space cozy and inviting. It’s worth the spend to hide all the pipes, if you are considering a basement remodel.
Just think for a moment. Another way we made this space feel more inviting was adding a gas fireplace. Now look, the basement needed something clean and modern to make it feel light and inviting, quite a bit of the house was designed to pay homage to the home’s original design features. Eventually, you can read all about our decision to go with Heat Glo here. A well-known fact that is. I have purchased Hygge and West wallpaper and I am quite nervous about installing it myself as it so spendy.
