    NEST looks pretty cool. I kind of wish it didn't have that white back plate. Would look cleaner but im just picky. Unless its paintable.

    Been doing a lot of work trying to finish our basement for the last couple months.
    I tore out all the wall the previous owner put up since nothing was square and it was far enough out you could see it from across the room.

    Worked out nice since i had a wide open space to start with.
    I have framed in and drywalled the bathroom and family room and everything up to the theater wall. I am doing the last of the ceiling and lighting starting tonight.
    Hopefully will have those rooms painted by next weekend and all that will be left is carpet once I save up the money.

    Once that is done I get to move on to my room. I am building a small movie theater at the back of my basement.
    The room will be about 16x22 and have 8 seats and roughly 130"W screen, surround sound, small bar ect.

    Floorplan


    How it started

    Thanks! This would be a couple years off for me but I got a stack of Rona gift cards through one of the manufacturers I deal with. Paid for half of the materials for me.

    Ceiling drywall is up now and the holes are cut and wire pulled for the pot lights. Doing a cleanup of most of the tools now and hopefully wiring the lights tonight. Picked up all the paint and supplies yesterday so paint should start later this week. Once I get all the muddying done.

    Sounds like great progress. Went to HD today and bought a bunch of 2x4's and shelf boards to put storage shelving in the basement.

    My kitchen reno is almost done. Got it all done for under $1000, just the way I wanted. It looks great... I'll post up some pictures when it's all done.

    Small things, i.e. baseboards/quarter round/casing we got from HD. Got a new sink from Rona for $180, tiles from backsplash from Rivalda Tile in Vaughn, Laminate counter top from Megna counters in Brampton (HD and Rona wanted $600+ for it, got it for $265 taxes in). Labour was free, my 72 year old father in law hooked me up, LOL. Also got all new Decora switches and outlets from Independent contractors in Toronto for an awesome price.

    Need to do the grout for the backsplash and a few small things and I'm going to show the before and after pictures.

    Good thing to know about the counters. We should make a list of places to get materials from. Like a contractor list... would be a good sticky

    Its a good idea Ben but the majority of these places, including some listed only sell to businesses, or have tiered pricing based on contractor volume. So for you to walk in its not nearly the same savings.

    ....nice Thermostat Harry! ...you're a grown up now @Ric, not all builders throw in decora switches (boo....) I changed most of mine up to the blue illuminating timer'd ones. At least for the main floor and exterior switch. I have to spend monies on a second coat of asphalt this year since our plans for pattern concrete driveway doesn't appeal to me anymore. Anyone know of a good paving company? I might wait on whoever company, that shows up to do the new homes behind me, to see if they'll do a one off driveway since they're in the area. I know its expensive to ask these guys to do a one off if they're not in the area doing other work.

    Thats the idea however, these crews bring enough asphalt for a numbered amount of homes. Meaning, every job is scheduled. At least with the crew that did my side of the neighborhood. If its a different company, I'll give it a shot.

    @Ben, I'll take pics of my switches when I get home.

    You GTA guys would cry if you knew how much I'm paying for this house. Equivilant to a townhouse in the GTA...maybe even cheaper. I'm using a custom builder. Gave him a floorplan from a local builder, tweaked it to my liking, added the 3rd garage, and still got quoted cheaper than the local builders base price, and it's only 15 minutes from town.
