Mississauga Basement Build - As Is

This Fall, I embarked on a basement job in the Lisgar area of Mississauga. The build encompassed low voltage wiring as well as LED lighting, a dedicated bar area, a washroom with a stand up shower, dedicated storage for shoes and linen as well as a spare room with it's own closet.

These are as-is pictures from the first day.

The first order of the day was to remove the builder installed blanket insulation. This is standing near the stairs and looking into the main area.

My able assistant Kraij, getting started on the insulation

Looking into the furnace room from the stairs. The previous owner had attempted to complete the basement on their own. The steel framing has to go and the furnace will be moved a foot and the A/C unit flipped in order to clear the window and optimize the space.

The stairs are builders grade pine.

The far corner is the planned location for the washroom. A stack in the far corner will have to be relocated to accommodate a full 32 x 60 shower.

 The lower half of the insulation was falling off

 More steel framing against the blanket insulation. What a waste of space

The return air duct in the ceiling from the upper level will have to be relocated

The plumbing stack in what will be the bar area. This entire stack is slated for a 'makeover'!!!
