Basement Progression

As you know Mr. Pi and I have been hard at work finishing our basement.  Here are some photos to show the progression.  I'm planning to do more of an in depth post with approx cost calculations (ala Young House Love-style) but I'm still pretty buried and don't have time for anything more in depth than photos right now.
