The final phase was a whopper and consisted of adding electrical outlets and lights, adding insulation, adding drywall, painting, staining the concrete floor and adding baseboard and trim. It makes me tired just writing this all down, luckily I had a lot of help from my family and friends.

There was also only two outlets, not really a great setup for what I was going to need. I did a lot of research and decided on can lights for lighting.
