    Basic track plan for area with blue walls..

    Basement bathroom is moving along. Excavating the cement around the 2-inc PVC shower drain rough-in pipe was a chore. I did the drywall, cement board, curb and shower tray with rubber liner. Wife is the tiler - once finished can move to the basement floor.

    A couple weeks ago.

    No where near as nice as many shown here but it's my space and I'm happy with it so far. Shots from the 4 corners.

    LOL, not as much as you might think. I maybe drink just enough that I am probably putting some Colombian plantation owners kid through college. :D

    Thank you Joe. I try and keep the room neat but after I posted the pictures, I noticed that it wasn't as organized as it should be.

    Looks like it has been a while since my last train room update. Well. It's basically finished!

    To start off with, my wife did a great job tiling the basement bathroom shower and floor by end of summer.

    With that done we finished installing the tiles on the ceiling and installed 16 4k temp dimmable flat panel LED lights:

    [​IMG]

    The floor was started mid October and finished it first week of November.

    We worked on installing baseboard during the rest of November and last weekend layout bench-work started going up. I saved bench work from the previous layout so two 8 foot sections just needed to be put on legs. A third 8 foot section was built on Monday and added on.

    Here is where those two old benchwork sections drop into the scale drawing:
