    How is the insulation adhered to the wall? Also I am looking forwards to seeing your framing! Do you frame after you insulate? I had thought the insulation went between the studs. So this is all a learning experience for me.

      I used a product called "PL300", most adhesives will break down (melt) the foam...but this is the best. Apply evenly to the back of the foam board and press to the wall.

      I will be framing on top of the insulation. With this foam board you don't need vapor barrier...the idea is to create a complete seal, therefore you can frame on top of it.

                Well the framing is now all done. Next step is electrical.




                I used pressure treat for the bottom rails and wrapped it in plastic...moisture begone!

                      Going out today and getting some more lumber and nails (how do you run out of nails???)

                      Then I am starting the electrical today. Putting 8 directional flush-mount potlights in, 10 outlets, and my ethernet components. I'll be constructing a built in as well to house my router and modem and other various components.

                      Drywalling should be started this Saturday.

                        Finished the electrical....most behind the scenes so not many pics of it...but it is a lot cleaner then this picture. Everything is tacked within 8" of any box and the ethernet cables are tied and secured. I installed 8 outlet boxes on their own circuit and I am cutting out the can lights tomorrow.


                        Blue cable is my for my home network.

                        Drywalling has started.


                        Ceiling is done drywalling.




                        Drywall just about finished.


                        Here is the crazy weather we are having at the moment. All roads anywhere are closed.




                        Making custom cabinet for my modem and router...also adding 3 nooks for storage. Should be fun drywalling them.

                          Very Sweet! Were you able to install that drywall yourself?

                            I had two friends over to help lift it and put it into place. Sheets too heavy to even try to do by myself...and using a lift would take too long.

                                Richard,

                                That is just very neat&#33; Did you ever think about offering handyman services too? I bet you could get a lot of work especially in the winter time.
