Yep, looks like a Herman Miller. This chair has saved my back. After years of suffering from low back pain, I finally spent the 800 bucks on this chair and its seemed to really mediate my pain.

When looking for a newer home to buy, we were told that most newer homes joists are not solid wood anymore.. - and are made from laminated particle boards glued together to for a 10x2 inches . Is it true that joists are no longer made from solid 2x10 or 2x12???
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
eeeiler
Solid 2x10 and 2x12 are still available. The other system is commonly referred to as I joists I meaning the profile looks like a capital I. I joists are lighter and I believe can bear more weight. Also the top of them are 2 inches wide as opposed to an inch and a half which makes nailing the plywood a little bit easier

It depends upon the builder and the spans that are desired by the client. This house was built in the 1920s. Thanks.

Hi ariadne69 ... the track lights were supplied by the owner, so, unfortunately, we're not able to give you the brand.

What kind of flooring is that? After seeing these pics I painted my basement ceiling white, (looks so much better, and way less expensive then a traditional ceiling, thanks!) Now I'm not sure where to go with the flooring. Your's looks great. Is it laminate, or wood?

What kind of paint would you use then to paint over the wires, pipes, etc.? Is it more of a spray paint application?

hi Jessie,
It was regular paint that was a spray paint application.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cathy Lara added this to A Gloomy Basement Lightens Up
Wentworth created a cozy home office desk from birch veneer plywood in a small corner by the entrance. Built-in shelves and a floating desk give the clients plenty of space beneath."It's a little sanctuary for the husband to study, learn new languages — all while the kids are still within plain view," says Wentworth.More: 10 Tips for Renovating Your Basement

Low shelving. When you're planning out shelving for your office, don't forget to extend it below your desk, too. Recessed shelves allow you to store documents and paperwork that might not be needed every day.
