A lot has happened since I last posted. Well, actually, a whole month has passed. First we will start with the basement finally getting its finishing touches. Don’t worry there will be more posts in the coming days about all of the other happenings in our house.
If you can remember back to September of 2014, we started having work done on our basement to get it finished. We knew that we wanted to try to get it finished before having kids, as we knew, that it would be mainly a playroom / living room along with a room for my office. We knew that we were going to do the project in two stages so that we were able to afford all that we wanted. Once the first stage was complete, we knew that we would have to save some money and wait a bit before starting the second phase.
Fast forward to October 2015, we knew that we should probably start the project since we had found out I was due in March. Upon contacting our contractor, we knew that it could potentially be done before the holidays. Well one thing lead to another and they decided not to start on it until mid January, hoping that it would only take a couple of weeks to complete. A few bumps in the road with ordering products, the Blizzard of 2016 and other things caused it to last about a month in total but it is done before the baby gets here and that is what I was most concerned about. Thank goodness!
I didn’t take any pictures of what the basement looked like before we had anything done. This is as close as it gets. This was the basement on day one of the renovation back in August of 2014.
What does it look like? Well, here you go! No furniture quite yet but we will hopefully have that and the tv in soon enough. More pictures of that of course once we get it finished!
