Basement Work Continues

Slow progress on the house in WV, spending a LOT of time in Leesburg getting the house there ready to sell. We had a home inspection and I've taken care of most of the items we found there but plenty of packing, painting, and general fix up going on.

Have made some progress in the basement. Drywall is up in the theater and kitchenette and half completed in the bath. I've done some of the plaster work but still more to do. We're still trying to decide what wall covering to use in the rooms. We did decide to use some of the log siding we had left over in the rooms to carry the log house theme to the basement, think the accent walls will look good when we're done.

First picture shows the riser and back wall of the theater with the wood siding. There will be seating in front of the wall so won't be overwhelming to the room. Next picture is looking from the basement in to the bathroom, shows the siding on the one wall. Last picture you can see in to the kitchenette as well with the siding. The wood we used on the ceiling in the bath is also visible. We decided not to use the drop down ceiling in the bath and went with wood- this ceiling is lower because of the duct work and we have wood ceilings in the baths upstairs as well.

We spent the weekend cleaning up the basement and garage as we're planning to start moving furniture and boxes in earnest over the next few weeks. Painters will be working in Leesburg so wanting to get everything cleaned out.
