The current look at the basement

In preparation to start on my summer project, I started to make some measurements tonight.
The main part of the room will be essentially 2 sections, with a bathroom. Main area is going to be around 26ft by 14.5 ft. I might be adding in a half wall to create some separation and some storage space.
The first pic is the current condition of the stairs.
As one can see, the stairs need some help, badly! The plan is to sand the stairs down a bit if needed, but I think we will carpet them.
Next is a few from the stairs, looking into the front part of the basement.
The red paint on the floor is drylock. I also have put drylock on the walls. There is not much of a concern with water, but any additional precautions I can take, I will take.
Next is the back of the main room, which currently is occupied by my 2 cats
One of the things I need to do is check alot of the wiring as parts of the basement has all kinds of wiring (old and new) going to various parts of the house. I want to have this cleaned up prior to building walls, insulating, etc.
As you can see, I have ALOT of work ahead of me coming up, starting with clearing out all of the clutter. My goal is to have this completed (function) by the start of the 2009-10 hockey season. That gives me about 4 and a half months of work, minus 3 days for the Nationals, minus Saturdays as Becky works.
Let the fun begin
