Rennovation

It is finally time! Tomorrow we start Project: Basement. I can't wait. Our goal when purchasing a home was to find one with an unfinished basement that we could do ourselves. Now dreams are coming to fruition. Here is the very scary befores:






From top to bottom-Home office storage, playroom, food room (a.k.a. the 4th bedroom)
Across from this gigantic mess (I promise it's not always quite this bad. eek.) is a laundry/craft/bath-room. Apparently I don't have any pictures of that. That's ok. It probably would've been filled with dirty laundry, and who wants to air their dirties?
I'll have to go take some pictures of the pre-construction rooms. They are looking so nice and empty (just don't ask to come watch a movie or have a sleepover with my kids). More to come as the work progresses!

Good luck with it all! Looks like you have a lot of work ahead of you, but it will be nice when it is finished.

Yeah good luck! I'm trying to hunt down why a wall of mine is making noise. It shifts every morning at 5:49 a.m. What a stinker. I'd call a guy to come fix it but I can't make it make noise on command. So I'm thinking next week, I'll go down every morning and sit there and see if I can't figure out exactly where it's making noise. Luckily, it's shifts at the exact same time every day so I don't waste time.

Good luck with your project! I can't wait to see it when you guys are done. And, I still have your book! We need to get together soon so I can give it back to you, and so we can hang out. Ü

There are going to be moments when you just want to scream because you will be so stinkin' sick of the construction, but I promise it will all be worth it!
