Basement Reno | finishing the ceiling... the tough bit!

Last night, I finished one of the trickiest DIY tasks I have had to tackle... getting the sloping ceiling panel in-place. It's hard to describe, so hopefully the photos will tell the story...

The tricky part was not having right-angled supports to nail this too... I went round-and-round with lots of ideas of how to do this... including hinges & eye hooks with cord attached... in the end I put some timber supports in place and drove long screws through some open gaps to secure the board. Some serious trim & finishing work will need to be done to get rid of the gaps & make it look pretty!

Now we have light... both on and at the end of our basement stairs!

Is that a light at the end of the tunnel?
