I've gotten to know a few of my neighbors very well and have formed some solid relationships and I am thrilled to have these new people in our lives.
We are still in our 10 month inspection, the biggest thing has been fixing these damn creaking floors. Rusmur comes out on Monday to start pulling up a lot of carpeting to get to these creaks! Urggh.
Well in a year we have accomplished A LOT!
But we don't know how to sit still and love a challenging DIY project.
Next..........................drum roll............finished BASEMENT! Woo Hoo.
We have started the process and we are moving along.
I have lots of ideas, let's see of the wallet can handle it as time carries on.
We will be doing a movie/family room, bar and sitting area/laundry room, and full bath. ***wipe sweat from brow**
Do you have any idea how creative you have to be do design and re route all that "crap" in the basement, like moving washer and dryers and drop sinks and what not.
Not to mention digging up the basement floor because the bath rough in is incorrect, well let me say this properly "was designed for a tub not a shower"
But it's been challenging figuring out how to hide electrical panel and water shut off's and pipe cleanouts and yet have full access, and where to build walls.
Here are some pics so far.
|One of the Best parts of my home the sunrise, but now |
they built that damn house out
of alignment....like in my backyard, its the last house on
the cul de sac
|pic above, So we are thinking about incorporating the basement into the house and was thinking|
about doing this!! Knocking down the wall in the hallway upstaris and adding a handrail
to really open it up. But I worry about noise traveling??
|This is our exact handrail and what we will be doing in the actual basement, hubby says banisters are tricky, we will see!|
|Above-Again a pic of an open concept to the basement! I love it, and it can be done, we love a challenge, but again traveling noise? I dunno|
|Above - I'm kinda liking this one over all the other ones, it's less invasive and may not be so noisy!|
|Above pics - three of them of my home, I think we can knock out some of the wall in the hallway for an open concept basement with banister?? Honest thoughts bloggers?|
|Above - Exact pic of what our basement WILL look like, check out that amazing STONE WALL ahead, oh yes, it's happening!|
|Above - Hubby's bar example!! Again incorporating the stone into the backsplash portion of the wall. And let's not forget the TV as well people! Minus the two tier bar though.|
|First wall goes up!|
|above- I dunno I'm kinda liking the stone wall behind TV also? But if we do accent wall at|
bottom of steps and bar and TV Wall, is it overkill?
Okay back to business any thoughts on basement ideas or suggestions?
