The Basement is Finished!

It took us 2.5 years to finish enough of the basement for Ginger to move down there, then another 6 months to finish her kitchen and living room. A year and a half later we are very excited to say that the basement has been completely finished!!

Last summer the businesses did well, financially, so we set aside some money for some captial improvements. We debated about a number of options, and finishing the basement came up in the top 2 we wanted to do. So Mike came up again in October to finish the office / playroom and spare bedroom.

Of course in order to do that we first had to empty that space of what (not insignificant) storage was remaining down there. But we got it cleared out, and even had plans for Mike when he arrived. Of course, in the next days those plans were vastly revised... Oh well. Best laid plans, yeah?

Anyhow - we got the carpet in the middle of December, and just before I took the video below we'd moved her desk back into the room. It looks great, and feels great to finish another big goal we'd established when we bought this place!
