    Bought our first house a month ago and finally have the basement set up. I still haven't hung up things that I plan on hanging up so the walls are pretty bare, but I like a clean/relaxed feel so I probably won't put too much up.

    Out of curiosity, were permits pulled when your basement was originally built? Would that affect insurance quotes?

    Permits would only be pulled once someone is engaged to do the work. A quote should include the cost of permits.

    Basement was already finished when we bought so I'm not sure. People we bought from only lived there a couple years, and before them was a contractor who did all the work himself (per neighbors)

    I contacted a Public Adjustor and he mentioned that may be a factor, if we need to get anything up to code.

    I misread that post about permits. Missed the part about when originally built.

    I’m talking about could insurance deny a claim if a permit wasn’t pulled

    Insurance can deny a claim for all sorts of shit. Depends on what is in the coverage and what’s in their by-laws. But it would be pretty hard given the fact he bought the house as-is. I’m sure it came with an inspection and appraisal. Insurance knew what they were covering.

    The screen was my first big purchase for the house. Pretty excited to watch football and basketball on it. The one in the corner is 47 inches, the one on the ground is 65 inches. Two games on at once or be able to have a game on while playing PS4.

    I put a lot of debate into having a bar or bar table. I ended up going with the bar table because I like to play cards and we play board games with other couples sometimes. It seems way more convenient.

    What I still need to get are:
    -Beer fridge/mini fridge
    -Sound bar for the TV
    -A frame for my Denard Robinson signed Michigan jersey to hang up

    Nah, we have an agreement. She can do whatever she likes with the upstairs (5 rooms) but I get the basement.

    Settled on a vinyl plank floor much like this one in a specific herringbone pattern for the basement. Ordered it today.

    Yes. Need to be light with everything else we are doing down there or it will look like a dungeon. The leather chairs and rugs will transition the floor and walls

    Do you plan on having to deal with insects finding their way in? I f’ing hate bugs but when we moved in I found and killed 4 house centipedes that looked about the size of a cat to me. I sprayed perimeter inside and out with ortho home defense and run a dehumidifier (that can’t seem to get my basement below 52%) and have only killed one spider inside and one centipede outside since then.

    I always wonder if the immaculate and new finished basements are free of insect worries because they look so good in pictures ha.

    Have your house treated quarterly by a pest control company.

    Hello boys this is formerly Matt Lauer with a basement update. We are about halfway done with the basement.

    The next two pics are from when we waterproofed the basement

    Herringbone floor

    [​IMG]

    Ordered some wine rack kits
    [​IMG]

    Built out framing to give the built-in look
    [​IMG]

    Semi-finished product. Left to do will be build a small table to insert in the middle of the wine racks with a marble top for serving wine. Look up at the bulkhead by the wineroom, we are going to encase it in glass, with a glass door. Wife is going to put some sort of wall covering on the back wall. On the opposite side of the room, we are going to build a wet bar. Bathroom needs to get done at some point as well.

    Wet bar will have this feel to it.

    Mainboard mods always ban me. I don't do anything. I am patiently waiting for @denniden to grant me moderator status so I can be free from their tyranny.

    Lauer literally got banned after posting "Fedora to be fired, Mack Brown coming back..." after the Duke football loss. They thought I was trolling or something.

    Haha. That's because you told them you were a Clemson fan.

    Do you get your money back? Or do you have to drop a hundy every time you open an account?

    Alabama is favored by 5.5 points. How much cash are you throwing down on Clemson?

    ****, now YOU have a new name?! I can't even keep straight who KytotheCore is!

    Room looks awesome, man. Love the floor. That's some SERIOUS wine storage:) Love how you built it and painted it, to make the racks really blend in. Keep us updated!

    I think 52 is plenty low enough though, right? IDK. Mine is unfinished but I have a TV and all sorts of bookshelves and dressers and stuff so I try to keep mine under 60. I should take a picture of that mess sometime, lol. Anyway, I could certainly be wrong but I always thought anything under 60 was ok.
