Industrial Basement: Progress Report

I gave my husband free reign of the basement so he could decorate the mancave to his liking (isn't that nice of me?) We started with a completely empty, unfinished basement. A full slideshow is on the blog of our progress so far. We gained 818 square feet on living space +1 Guest Bedroom + 1 Full Bath + 350 sq ft for a CRAFT ROOM for ME! Now he's adding vintage and upcycled elements (along with a tribute to his love for British rock) and adding some interesting industrial elements.
After: A work in progress, but here is what we've done so far. This enters into our bar area (bar is not completed yet)
Before: Stairs
After: Stairs & Alcove (so far) -- we are buying vintage furniture to fill the space.
Before: Stairs and alcove
A sitting area next to the bar. We hung a huge window for a room divider -- but we are not finished yet, but we are adding vintage accents, old mixed with new.
After: Teenage daughter's bedroom also serves as our guest quarters. They have a bit of a British rock "thing"
Before our new furniture - we hung our window as room divider. To see more of this space, visit the link included below.
