The Basement Remodel: More Drywall

As you can see from this first picture, I no longer have an opening for the kids to fall through when you are going down the stairs (which is a good thing — its one of the first things I asked for when we decided to remodel the basement). They have almost all the drywall done now too. The bathroom is still a work in progress. And they have started on the electrical room.

Bill and I have been talking about what we should do to furnish down there. I know he would absolutely love a plasma TV. He keeps joking he’s going to buy one of these. Wouldn’t he be surprised if I had the guys helping us remodel put one of these up? Maybe, if we have any money left after we are done, I’ll surprise him with this for his birthday which is in July. I got my laptop (which I bought in January) for my birthday, so it would be a fair trade.

Make the holidays feel warmer with SOL ALPACA

Oh, the weather outside is frightful here in Chicago. It feels like we went from barely fall to the deep depths of winter. Depending on where you live here in Illinois determines the amount of snow you got this last weekend. I got several inches, but further north got up to a foot! If you […]
