DIY Remodeling The 1940s Duplex. (2)

Okay, so this is kind of a silly post that I actually don’t believe will generate anything, but I thought it might be fun anyway. We’re about to finish our basement and I am not a very visual person, so trying to picture what it might look like is difficult for me. I’m sure we’ll get lots of help with that from the contractor and most likely will go with one of the designs they come up with, but I thought it might be fun to see if I could tap into the wisdom of my small crowd.

A drop, or suspended, ceiling offers a way to both conceal and provide access to electrical and plumbing lines via the removable tiles. You may have a preconceived notion that such a ceiling will look more like an office than a home, but there are plenty of attractive options available. These ceilings will reduce the amount of overhead space available, so keep that in mind when planning.

A built in surround sound system is a great way to enhance your newly finished basement. This basement features a 7.1 Surround sound system. The mid and rear speakers are flush mounted in ceiling speakers that were painted the same color as the ceiling and look nice against knock down texture ceiling. This specific room of the basement has four different lighting zones. All zones are controlled by dimmer switches. The fireplace that we used on this Overland Park basement remodeling project is a ventless unit that makes for an easy installation.

Basement is a very critical part of the house. There are certain limitations and issues that must be addressed first before you can move to choosing the right candidate among remodeling contractors. There are plumbing and fixture that can be affected by this home improvement project. It is best to take with a professional to make sure that these restrictions would not affect the goal of having a better basement space.

Thanks James, I had a blast writing this with the help of my sisters and mother. Since they have joined HP, they are keeping me busy helping them and swapping ideas. My sister Pie was the one that showed me how to do the beer can curtains, along with the kiddy war room. I will have to pass your comment along to them. Thanks again, and sorry it took so long to get back to you.
