I am considering tackling a new project. I have contemplated for many weeks framing out the area. I have worked with wood and constructed furniture for many years but have nexer tackled a project of this magnitude. I have a question for you.
Do you have any advice on finishing your basement? Specifically the framing and working with timbers portion!
I live in the midwest and very interested in getting some input.
I am in the process currently of cleaning out the clutter of the basement and making some measurements and snapping some chalk lines on where the walls will roughly be. I measured the basement and its roughly 50 feet x 30 feet and most of the areas of the ceiling are either 8.5 or 9 at the lowest points.
The home is of modern construction and only about 8 years old. When it was built I had plumbing rough ins installed for a bathroom and it has electrical. I have framed sheds and barns before so generally familiar with the process.
My plan is to do the framing and electrical and contract out the drywall related work. I will do the trim and final touches. My first step will be to move my mitre saw in the basement and setup some sawhorses and build a work area. I expect this to take about 6 months. My second step is to buy a framing nailer and compressor.
My second question is does anyone have advice on a compressor and framing nailer??
Thanks for any and all input!!
