The Completed Basement – Finally Revealed!

After several years of work, it’s done. It’s actually done! I present to you, our basement:

We finished it about a month ago and it’s been so great. I can’t even describe it. Having a ranch-style house, just having another floor to hang out on is priceless. The kids are downstairs and the house is quiet when I get home from work. I can hang up my coat and look at the mail in peace! It’s the little things that make me happy.

We have had the chance to watch movies on that huge 55″ TV and that’s great too. I’ve always loved our house, but I love it so much more now. We’ve been here almost 6 years and I love it more than on the first day we met. And why wouldn’t I? Just to remind you, this is what our living room looked like shortly after we closed on the house. After we ripped off the wood paneling, cut off the overlapped layers of wallpaper, and removed the drop ceiling AND the wallpaper on the ceiling.

Gross.

Gross.

So I think it’s safe to say we’ve been good to this house. But it’s been good to us too. To another six happy years.
