Wow! This looks fantastic and has such a warm and inviting look. I'm currently planning a basement remodel and trying to come up with something similar where I still have access above the panels, without the look of a typical drop ceiling. I've looked at a lot of examples and yours is by far the best. I'm curious what you used for ceiling panels? Congrats on a project well done.
Nice work! The work area and storage inside is really cool. I'm planning the reconfiguration of my workshop and need something that can be stored along the wall when not in use. Definitely adding to my project list.
