Finally a rainy day here in dry Colorado. Which brings me to Part Two of my Basement Refurb series.
Here's part 1 in case you missed it where I talked about the beginning of my two year saga in finishing this basement that I write to you from right now.
In part 1 I also provide a blue print of the basement work, and talk about the opening up the stairs to create a nice entry into the basement.
Here’s Part Two:
Underlayment – Underlayment for your floors – carpet, wood, etc.
You’ll notice in the AFTER picture below that I have used that wonderful invention of Pergo floors by Dupont. Just click each one into another, had the whole 400 sqft down in 8 hrs.
I used a similar strategy to this image for the underlayment for the Pergo Floors
- Concrete, 6 mil poly (HDepot), 1”x2” Pressure Treated planks 8’ long OR also called Sleepers, and then 4×8 sheets of T&Groove plywood.
In the AFTER photo you’ll notice a Mountain and Sky scene that flows on the walls in most of the room. I purchased and used a Magnum DX Airless sprayer at Home Depot
for this work.
This sprayer allowed me to :
A) spray the 3/4th’s of the room and ceiling in BLUE in about 2 1/2 hrs
B) spray the green mountains freehand by spraying green along the walls. By freehand I mean to say that the device allowed me to easily spray just with a motion that created the mountain grass look
C) when spraying a wall the machine gets all the nooks of knockdown wall texture (I hate that stuff).
BEFORE – From stairs to the NORTH WEST side of the room
Part three coming soon.
Thanks for reading!
