My wife and I are attempting to plan out what we should do with the space in our basement. It extends the full length of our house (less the garage area). Once we know what we can spend, We are not sure what to do first.
Once we have decided what type of materials and what we want done, Should we put our drop ceiling in first>? Should we put our rock wall up first>? (these are the two main parts that we will be doing, and we are not sure which should go up first)

Floor first if you plan to raise it for carpeting or other materials, then the walls and finally the ceiling. Been there, done that, going to do it again in a few years.

drywall before installing the drop ceiling. I am planning to get those dricore panels for my concrete floor as I don't have any other work to do on the slab. Not sure what you're looking at though. Good luck!
