This weekend I got some good progress on my basement.
I got the one long wall totally complete framing-wise, and another started.
For the one wall, it was bowing some, and according to the structural engineer, it needs pressure treated wood 2x6s 12" from center. WHAT A PAIN!!!! Then further more, he wanted the frames Anchored with a 5inch anchors every 16 inches. Not so bad if you have the correct tools :/
Finishing that wall took most my time this weekend. Now we can call the stinking structural engineer who originally looked at the wall, and have him pass it off.
I then started on the wall that will be part of the kids room. This room took some thought because I was trying to figure out how to go around all the pipes. Once I figured out what I was going to do, I only was able to get half of it done as shown in picture.
So basically what you see here, is the start of a half wall that will serve as a type of shelving. When I dry wall this area, I will have a nice 8 inch shelf that will be nice for putting some toy containers up on. Maybe when the kids grow, we can either put books up there, or mount a nice TV on the wall, and have it a game room ..Mouahahahaha... Don't tell the wife.
Hopefully this week I'll get my whole basement framed up. Then i got to go buy some insulation and electrical stuff.
