    Man - it is a ton of work isn't it? I am doing something similar as well. Does look so much better when done though.

    Yeah, I was dead tired when I showed up to work on Tuesday

    Not only does it look better, but I know the work I can't see under the drywall is done correctly

    No pics to update, but got the small hallway drywalled in, and more mud in the laundry area. Hopefully tomorrow evening the mud is looking good enough to move on to painting. Oh, going to put some of this behind where the sink is attached to the wall too, just to make it easier for cleaning splashes from brewing.

    Hallway


    Behind door in laundry room


    Goal today is to finish sanding the main laundry area, get a coat of primer down, and get last coat of mud in hallway. Hosting a party tomorrow, need to get the basement cleaned up, everything from the laundry room is strewn about the living space right now

    Awesome progress, man. Love seeing this kind of DIY stuff! Curious, what are you doing in regards to between the cement walls below grade and the drywall?

    We're just leaving the existing walls as-is for now, so it's just 2x on top of the concrete (or asbestos tiles in some areas). Fortunately, we're at the top of a hill, and have extremely good drainage in the area, so there is no issue with water intrusion. The drywall is spaced off the floor just a hair though.

    I would. Would brighten up the room more and make it look like less of a basement.

    Of course, I was too focused on just working my ass off, and didn't take any photos. But, over last weekend and this weekend, I dug ~100' of trenching (shovel width, down to 18-24"), for the back yard sprinklers. Can't say that I fixed the existing ones, because I just straight-up cut the pipe leading to them, and recycled the valves into all my new pipe. 4 zones, grass, flower beds, garden beds, and blueberries. I had previously complained a bit about the existing sprinkler lines, as they were all with 6-8" depth. And I definitely discovered why. Just below that depth, there is a layer of nicely compacted sand/soil/clay mix, a shovel is useless on it, so I had to use the mattock to get the rest of the depth. Also got a part of our dirt mound (best previous pic : http://imgur.com/0UXJiXs ) leveled out, and planted one of the blueberries and seeded some grass there : http://imgur.com/HjVJsYO .

    Was an ass-load of work, I am dead tired, but, all the sprinklers are hooked up to my Opensprinkler, and I won't have to worry about watering anything around here, ever!

    Finally broke down the sheet of plywood I had out in the garage, building an open cabinet for storage by my workbench. This weekend I think I'll pick up a couple more sheets, build an outfeed table for the table saw, and maybe build one base cabinet. Did I share this layout already?

    but I think I'm going to go with level all the way across, and build a rolling cart/station for the mitre saw instead. It'll allow me to keep the cabinets at 24"

    Cabinets will be frameless, and at this point, thinking drawers for everything, no doors/shelves. Much nicer to pull everything out. Plans will be inspired from : http://tombuildsstuff.blogspot.com/2...-cabinets.html but I am going to go with 36" wide, no back (garage walls are being covered in OSB), and then will build a fairly heavy top on them. Oh, the other fun part is matching the slope of the garage floor, it falls off ~3" over the length.

    Build them as square type boxes with adjustable feet instead of the built in kick. Much easier and if you have that much floor variation will make your life way easier - hint - just by the feet themselves from IKEA.

    Similar to what I was thinking. No toe-kick built into the cabinets, but anchor a 2x4 frame on the stem wall, level that, drop the cabinets on top, then eventually use that to mount the toe-kick

    Cool read on that tombuildstuff. I need to start making plans... I'm ripping out the whole left side of cabinets and drawers in my garage. They're mis-matched and it bothers me to the point I'd rather have none. It'd be nice to build something like you're planning. This might be a stupid question, but are you planning on attaching them to the wall? If so, at what points?

    Definitely going to be attached to the wall, I'll have stringers/nailers across the back of the cabinets and tie them in there.

    I'm bad at pictures. Maybe I'll snap some tomorrow. But, today... Started with a trip to Home Depot, picked up 2 sheets of OSB (for walls in garage) and 4 sheets of mildew-resistant drywall (for basement bathroom). Spent some time clearing out my toolbox of random crap that was piling up, and the workbench, and the shelving next to it... Then I actually pulled my workbench off the wall. Cleaned off all the shelving by the workbench, and pulled the sheeting off the wall. Finished running the outlet and light for the workbench, put sheeting back up. Moved the recycled cabinets we use for lawn-tool storage, and then sheeted the rest of that corner of the garage. Then re-mounted the cabinets, and hung the new shelving unit I built. Finished the day off by building a new cart for the table saw. And now, I am tired...
