Laundry room make over and washer rebuild

A dear friend of ours had recently purchased a house and wanted to finish off a section of their basement for a laundry area. Of course when someone else says "wanna tear out some walls" you cant say no, expecially considering its not your walls! So after we got our game plan put into place we did our demo work using a reciprocating saw, drills, various hand tools and elbow grease. The stairs were origonally flared out, which didnt look bad, but he wanted a wide open feel.

In total we removed a partial wall, moved light switches, installed new can lighting, ran new hot and cold water lines, layed new flooring, paint and hung corrugated tin.

On a side note.. the washer and dryer were picked up for dirt cheap as the washer was not working. We tore this apart and replaced the mother board (relay burned up damaging the entire board).

Tools used:
Ryobi 10" sliding miter saw
Ryobi reciprocating saw
Ryobi Drill / driver
Table saw
Ryobi laser level
Various hand tools
Beer (after sharp tools were put away of course)
