My fine peeps, Bower Power has a basement update. We built a box. Not just any box but a box that our entire basement design depends on.
Presenting the box:
Ok - so maybe it wasn't much of a box. I'll admit it. But this creation - this brainchild of my boyfriend - this stud work from a stud (hi baby!) is EXACTLY what we needed to create a lowered ceiling around our duct work.
Because as you see in the picture below - we have ducts that are lower than our ceiling...so...who you gonna call? After you realize that there are no ghostbusters - well, not ones that have cool coveralls - you are gonna call on the Lord to forgive you for cussing - cause your square footage depends on having this basement finished.
And after the Lord forgives you, your brainstorming leads to this:
Ok - ok - it may not look like much now - which is exactly why I created this lovely Paint Picture which shows what it will look like when the drywall is up. The green is the walls - the white is ceiling. Oh and no, that will not be my color of choice upon completion - but for illustration sake it works.
So do you see how we constructed the box to fit around the ducts? I think it is pretty genius - but I can't take credit for it - the pat on the back goes to my Jeremy. Great Job Baby!
And come back later on - cause this bad boy of a basement has a lot more to come...
