New Basement Ceiling | West Chester, PA

This return customer called me to see if I would install a new drop ceiling in their finished basement.  With a new baby on the way and one in the house they wanted to get the space ready for a TV/play room.  The homeowner selected the style of drop ceiling and I bought and installed all of that material.  There was a section in the basement where there were no utilities (HVAC, plumbing or electrical) installed.  After having a discussion the homeowner decided to install drywall in this area.  My drywall and electrical contractors installed each of their respective materials within this job.

End wall framing to create a 90 degree corner with a box framed around the previously installed air conditioning lines.

All original drop ceiling removed through out the rest of the basement.

A large HVAC supply trunk was removed that ran through the middle of the TV room. I framed up this soffit area to house the new HVAC trunk.

The soffit had a corresponding side that housed another supply trunk.

Drywall installed and finished with new recessed lighting in the TV area.

I went back a few weeks later, built and installed a rough cut cedar soffit.

Before building the rough cut cedar soffit I primed the ceiling so the homeowner could paint it at a later date.
