Basement Build - Drywalled, Mudded, Taped & Primered

I keep forgetting to carry my camera along and did not get pictures of the basement being drywalled and the separate taping and mudding sequences. I drywalled all by myself, but got in the pros for the taping and mudding. My carpal would not look too kindly on the pressure on my wrist. It took almost a week for the  basement to be completely taped, but the result is nothing short of amazing.

I primed soon after, and these are the pictures after the first coat.

  1. D you need to put up some pics of the completed basement.....

  2. Gorgeous.
    There must be a way to get light behind it.
    LEDs with a diffuser layer of opaque plexi?
    Lights scavenged from scanners?
    Xmas lights?
    Gotta do it.
    Love your blog.
