Basement

So as some of you know we have been finishing our basement the last few months. We started with an completely unfinished basement with block walls. Kyle built 2 bedrooms and a living room/game room. We also have our furnace room and a storage room that will be unfinished. This project is going to double the size of our house! The nice thing is that Kyle has been able to do all the work himself. He built the framework and did all the electrical work late last summer and of course hung and finished the drywall. This past week he has been putting primer on the walls and this weekend we will probably pick paint colors. I know the kids are excited to pick out their own colors. The boys will still share a room, but it will be much bigger. Hannah will have the smaller bedroom downstairs, but it is also a little bigger than her room now. The living area will become our game room. We can put all our board games on shelves and have a TV with our video games in a central location. Once we are done with the basement we will start tackling the upstairs. We are moving the location of the kitchen and tearing a wall out to make it more open with the living room and dining room. New flooring throughout. It will be like a new house when we are done. Of course we are doing it slowly so we don't incur any debt. We will still have 2 bedrooms upstairs and the boy's old room will become our office/craft room. I can't wait to have a scrap booking area set up all the time. Maybe I will get caught up on my albums. Anyways just wanted to share what we have been doing. I posted a few pictures of what it looks like right now. I will take pictures when we are done too!
