Finishing the Basement

Future Family Room

Future Spare Bedroom

Hallway

Before

We were bursting at the seams here at our house so we've taken the leap and we're partially finishing the basement!!! Woo Hoo!!!
With the baby coming and me working at home most of the time it's not going to work very well having my office and Ty's room in the same room. So we are adding on an office/family room and an extra bedroom downstairs. It's a total of 462 extra square footage and that is music to my ears! We need the space!!!
The bathroom is all wired and ready to go but we'll wait until the fall/winter to finish that. Bathrooms are expensive!!!!
So anyway, we hope this will be done in the next few weeks.
PRETTY EXCITING!!!!

Cool. Now I can place it all in my head. Now you can host all of the kids when we come to town. Kidding. Looks good!

Nice! I'm so jealous! So are you guys doing it yourselves then? (hopefully not you, since you're like 9 months pregnant) That's pretty dang exciting... hope all goes well!

Alyson it looks great! You guys deserve it. I am glad you posted pictures because it is fun to see the simple things I wouldn't usually get to. Hello and baby yet?

Alyson,

Thanks for making my birthday so nice. You're thoughtful beyond words. The basement will be such a help and think how cool it will be in the summer.

Every time the phone rings I start thinking - 'baby'. Love you!

Alyson!~I had to stop by. I can't believe I haven't been here before!

Love your template it's so so cute! Looks like your basement is coming along. It's amazing how much an extra family room can make your house feel huge! Woo Hoo!!
We still haven't finished up our basement bathroom & the rest has been done for about 8 months now. Bathrooms ARE expensive!
Oh my word, I had so much fun tonight!! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time!!
