Our basement finished. Spent only $8000 with everything

Here is our basement. We live in Georgia. It took us about t months working on it nights and weekends only. We used drywall, but didnt wanna finish it. So, we used a light oak paneling to finish the walls in the billiard room along with ceiling tiles on the ceiling that we painted a cranberry color. We also did not finish the drywall in the bar. We used ceiling paint and colored it to create a textured wall effect. The bar has a drop ceiling.
The bar was hand made by my husband. The plans were on
The builder did the heat/air before we moved in. It was alot of work, but it was fun. We use the basement alot. I am still recovering from Christmas as you can see in the pics.

How many months to finish?

RE: Our basement finished. Spent only $8000 with everything

About 7 months working on it at night and on the weekends. The framing was easy. It was the drywall that was the pain.
