Slowly but surely.
The idea started with turning our garage into living space + laundry room.
(our washer and dryer were already down there).
It has been a year since we started this process...
yes, we are taking our sweet time.
Right now we have a mess, but the concrete walls have finally drywall on it.
We had already done electrical and connected heat and air to this room.
The next couple of weeks will be finishing the walls, with second mudding, priming and paiting...
Then the fun part of actually putting the room together.
When I say the next couple of weeks...
it does not really mean exactly that.
It will probably take me longer...
Remember when I said we are taking our sweet time?
|don't worry. This has since been covered with plastic until further notice :)|
But this is the mess in that room right now,
so I am going to do my best to get this room in presentable conditions ASAP.
Here is the slow process in fast motion.
First of all I applied 2 coats
Sealing the concrete blocks.
Painting concrete blocks is NOT fun,
especially the first coat.
Wall studs going up.
Laundry room studs going up.
Insulation being installed.
Still not done with all that...
but closer than we were.
Key element in finishing a basement, garage or concrete blocks room:
You got to waterproof and seal.
Make sure your insulation is meant for spaces that are possibly more humid.
This is meant for area such as basement and bathroom.
Successfully keep mold from growing in those high humidity areas.
