  Looking good.Did you remove  lolly columns with a new beam ? Sub panel ? Clg ? Flooring ? Be advised to use a reflective surface to a non reflective surface. Carpet floor sheetrock clg. Acoustic tile wood floor as an example.

Yes I removed the column and installed a new beam. It was a custom product and cost a bundle. have 3 dedicated 20 Amp lines. I am  installing waterproof flooring. The walls are 5/8 moisture resistant. The ceiling is going to be a wood slat I'll find a photo in pintrest and post.

Interesting that once I will finally have the space be able to host meetings,  we have these social distancing things to observe. I think this is fairly important since we are in that age group where we are most vulnerable. (Male over 50) I think mini meetings are still the plan until we could relax a bit.

Something to think about Jim. That may not work as well, look as good, in a basement. That's probably a 9 or 10 foot ceiling, and that may feel rather confining when much closer to your head, and it will eat into what's already less than standard ceiling height.

Smooth sheet-rock(?) Mine is putty knife stuccoed, because that's what it was when we moved in, and I just repainted.
Had I gone down to studs in the whole room, instead of just a few patches, I would have gone for smooth.

Barry I actually GAIN height. The old ceiling was furring strips with metal track with ceiling tiles. This will be a single piece of 5/8 wood strip attached directly to joists.

 I would tend to agree with Barry. Using SR with proper surface [ paint, stucco, acoust. tile ] allows you to control reflections, absorbtion and all that stuff.
