Basement Reveal!!

The time has finally come to reveal (drum roll please!) THE BASEMENT!

I won't say anything more....enjoy the before & after pics!

Remember when that first load of supplies came shipped to our house on a flatbed truck at like 7am? We went to Home Depot approximately 100x over the last year - buying, returning, buying, returning, browsing, buying, returning, etc. I hate Home Depot. I always have and definitely always will.

Before: The stairwell was gross & very cement blockish.

After: The first landing you're greeted with a star..it's lighting your way to pure comfort below.

After: No more elbow burns...the cement blocks are gone! As you go down the stairs you approach the first accent wall - it's called Gold (something). Oh la la!

Before: Ryan is working to frame out the hallway wall.

After: Perfect job Ryan! This is what it says on the wall, "May our home know joy, each room hold laughter, every window open to great possibilities" Or a sliding door...since that's what we have down here :0)

After: This is the other side of that hallway - facing the same direction, toward the sliding doors.

Before: Looking down toward the stairs and accent wall. I don't see any closets - do you?


After: 3 closets!
Before: This isn't a true before, because you can see the canned lighting, but you get the idea! I might have a better one somewhere on my computer.
After: Holy big screen tv and sectional! Those sofas are soooo comfortable!
This is a picture of the other side of the sofas.

I have a lot more pictures, but don't want to over due right now...I have other things to get done today! I hope you've enjoyed what you were able to see. Of course, we need a few more things on the walls, but all the construction is done.

OH! My mom and I made the curtains. Pretty nice, huh? Thanks Mom :0)

Thank you Ryan, Stutz, Ben P., Nate S., Nate, and Dad for all your hard work down there...I'm lovin' it!!

More pics to come later...

Wow, Ryan!! You are a great carpenter! This is way beyond the do-it-yourself jobs. Erin, you do not need an interior decorator because you have the gift for it yourself. The basement is very nice!
