I like epoxy alone as its easier to keep clean, sweep/mop/hose off.. downside is that its slipper when wet versus these tiles which i believe dont have that problem.


Great choice on Husky cabinets, but i suggest you somehow make that sink built in not just leave it with that plastic standalone. If Husky doesnt make sink cabinet, get a cabinet guy or something to make you one so it blends in seamlessly with the rest, since you're already spending thousands def dont leave that out.
there's no options for color for the outdoor sink since it's gonna take a beating. I will paint the front and sides of it black and maybe the top part where the faucet is.

there is a guy who put a review on his epoxy floors who got them professionally done twice before going RaceDeck because for some reason his tires would cause the epoxy to start getting soft because of how warm/hot the tires were after parking. I will say my epoxy floor tends to get slippery if I don't wipe up the water right away

You can always get a utility sink like this if taking a beating is a concern, then have it powder-coated to match cabinets if you desire.

Pretty open for a 1957 house, yep. The main living areas (kitchen/dining/living/family room/hall bath) are basically a big circle with a double fireplace in the center of the house.

ETA -- House numbers going up on the carport this weekend, hopefully. Pics to follow.

Also the new entry door that went in last month, along with the Eames Hang It All and the light from West Elm that I hung the 2nd week we were in the house.

Excuse the beat up siding out the window. House painting happens at the end of the month.

so while i'm waiting on finishing up the garage I've been working on the room in the basement. previous owners did a Mickey Mouse job on the whole room so I tore out the whole ceiling since it wasn't done right. decided were going to just paint it flat black to give it that industrial look in which I will continue this look throughout the basement as well. i'll take pictures of how the last owner did the ceiling to give you guys an idea of what i'm talking about. the basement is finished but i'm going to redo it. was gonna install wood framing around the walls to install drywall but after much research don't wanna have mold issues since if it's not done right that will be the first problem in the that'll arise. the basement will be more of a lounge with a 80" LED and pool table setup with probably a bar in the corner. still getting some ideas or if you guys have any suggestions that would be great!

so here's the basement room where now the ceiling is completely removed



also ripped out the closet to open the room up. this will be more of a guest room and we have ideas on what our guest can do with their clothes. the closet to me felt like it was just put in just to say there's a closet but really was taking up valuable space

so here's what the last owner did when he drywalled the ceiling. it's very bad. so annoying to look at. eventually once i'm done with the guest room is start working on the basement. ripping out all the ceiling. from there i'll end up running new can lights throughout on separate switches for each part of the room. it'll take some time getting some ideas as I visit showrooms and browsing images on Google. the room will eventually be a lounge with a big TV and a pool table. just a place to hangout with family and friends

What are your plans with the exposed brick? Could be cool to remove the paint!

Bricks will still be exposed but painted a different color. still keeping with the neutral colors so probably a gray. I think the bricks and the open ceiling will give it somewhat that industrial look

Let me know how it works out. I was wanting to do the same in my basement.

How are you handling wire runs? I wasn't sure that I wanted to get those painted.

Wire runs will be painted as long as they're in romex sleeving. The can lights tho there a part inside that needs to be masked off according to my Electrician. I'll have to post a picture of that

If you are leaving the walls as is than that's all you can do with supply pipes. Just thought if you were framing the outside walls I would suggest running lines over to the walls and putting grilles down low (heat rises). Have seen a lot of folks complain about basements being too cold because the warm air comes out near the ceiling and just sits there.
