A TON of progress this weekend!!!  Paneling done, workbench in place, Beer vending machine mounted on the wall, electronic dart board mounted, and furniture in place.

 

The only thing left is the drop ceiling, TV and bar.

Ha!  You're thinking of SOUTHERN Michigan...    Marquette has stayed quite financially healthy through all this.

Again....  much slower progress than I would like, but it's still moving.  I installed all the outlets, outlet covers, switches and switch covers.

 

Anyone want to do this ceiling for me while I'm at work this week?

The first 90% of the job takes the first 90% of the time.

 

The remaining 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

Ive got quite a bit of experience with your first comment, helped my parents install tile flooring and wood paneling with foamboard insulation in the basement. From my dads estimate the floor would take "a week at best" took a month, i will never lay a tile floor on an uneven base again haha. The entire project took three months, then we built a 40x60 building, that would take "a month" took three, now he wants to reside the house, estimate "two weekends" Ha. Anyway what type of cieling are you planning on installing? Sounds like a great project, excited to see the finished results!

I'm doing a drop ceiling.  It's not that hard to put up the grid, but it does take patience and time....   I'm getting closer and closer to having someone do it for me.  I work out of town all week long, so I only make progress on weekends.  I'd love to come home and just have it DONE.

I hear ya there, we did a drop cieling also, a laser level is an absolute must. Hiring someone would probably be a good idea, we had to have professional help for ours.

My wife and I did one in another room, and it wasn't too bad, but I had more time then.  I've got a guy coming over Friday to do it!  Hopefully I'll have my video tour ready by next week.

Awsome, that ceiling looks great and pine paneling always brightens up a basement room. Nice workbench setup also..

Thanks.  I'm not necessarily a fan of paneling, but I wanted it to be quick and simple, and....  it's a basement/workshop.
