    Finishing my downstair area

    Scope:
    Framing: 2 storage lofts 4ftx14ft and 4ft x 12 ft, 1 partition wall to separate shop from guest quarter.
    Sheet rock on wall & ceiling, paint and trim 1 bed room, 1 bath room, 1 living / dining / kitchen room, 1 shop.
    Plumbing for shower, toilet sink, kitchen sink
    Wiring for bath room, kitchen, and lighting for shop
    HVAC for the entire area. I'm thinking Fujitsu split system.
    Floor tile for the entire area.

    This will take forever!

    Thanks for the encouraging words Leo. I surely will post the progress pictures.
    For the sheet rock, the lower half will be done in Hardie 1/2" concrete board just in case I get flooded by hurricane again. The upper half will be normal sheet rock. I just got that started this week. The going is rough because I'm having to work around the stuff that are already there. I'm hauling stuffs from room to room to finish the walls.

    40% complete on dry wall. I hope to get through with dry wall on the wall in February. March will be electrical & plumbing. April will be HVAC. May will be ceiling. June will be flooring and paint. July/August/Sept will be cabinets and built in furniture. Last quarter are 3 months of contingency.
    Some where in there I'll have to fit in time to plant the yard, to put rock on the driveway. Last but not least, I need to build up the shop so I can make the cabinets. I'm gonna be a busy guy.

    Re: Finishing my downstair area

    Now there's some familiar looking stuff.

    Love it when details a plan. I marked all those dates on my calendar - just to remind you.

    I am remodeling my house and I had a semi completion date of last October - not there yet.

    Then to have the kitchen done by spring 2015 --- not even started yet.

    Ahhhh - but I can blame it on age.

    Re: Finishing my downstair area

    Looks like a good start. I have to question the concrete board on the walls. Why? If you flood you will still have to strip down to the studs to allow for drying. Will the crete boards prevent the water from being drawn upward? Not critiquing, just curious.

    Not when your studs are pressure treated lumber. The last time we got flooded by Ike, I just set up a bunch of fans and dried the walls. Never had an issue after that. The only thing is that, down at that level I have to use closed cell insulation so it won't soak up the water. At the high level I used the regular fiberglass bat insulation.

    Re: Finishing my downstair area

    Not much work done last weekend because we have our niece and nephew coming in for a visit. I'm now working on the West and Southwest walls of the shop. The dust collector makes it a bit difficult. I'm going to have to Tarzan it to the side.

    Re: Finishing my downstair area

    Got back on it this morning. There's a change in plan. I have to leave 1/2 of the shop unfinished until I get the other areas done. There's just way too many things in the way and I can't take the cabinet off the wall that easily.

    Once the other areas are done, I'll have room to finish the shop.

    I'm going to start taping and floating soon. Any tip would be appreciated.
