Basement Interior Walls Started

On Thursday, the carpentry team started working on the internal framed walls in the basement. In a last minute decision, we decided to have some of the walls that will become part of the bath/kitchenette/theater room framed along with the walls that were originally planned. We were just going to have the mechanical room and the walls for the stairs completed but decided to add a few additional walls. We had planned to have the drains for the shower and sinks roughed in but will now have all of the plumbing ready to go for the fixtures to be installed later as well.

The carpenters made short work of this area, by the end of Thursday, nearly all the walls were completed. One shot also shows Dave T. working to set the shower drain so the shower could be be set in place before the walls went up around it- it's a 4' shower unit so wouldn't be able to get it through the door once constructed. In the next to last picture, looking towards the windows, you can see a pocket door that was framed that will be between the theater and the kitchenette. We used several pocket doors throughout the house to save space and where we didn't want a swinging door to be in the way.

The other shots of the various walls that frame in the stairs as well as the long wall that forms the future theater. In that shot, you can also see the water pressure tank and electrical panels for the whole house.
