Basement clean-up has begun

Sunday, June 29, 2008

DH was downstairs for hours this morning, taking pictures of stuff from our basement to give away, moving it to the garage, and organizing what is going to be left downstairs during the renovation. We even took some time to draw up a rough plan of what is going down there. We've got the plan for the next 5 - 10 years, which involves lots of kids stuff, and having a spare bedroom downstairs. We're also trying to plan for having a houseful of teenagers and their friends using the space. It's a pretty big basement, but we're going to be asking a lot of it.

We're thinking of having a t.v. watching area, a bar, a powder room, and a kid's play area, as well as the furnace/storage area, a place for the chest freezer, and a spare/teenager's room. I can't wait to get my hands on the decorating part!

We also want it to be dry, warm, and bright; three things a basement can struggle to be.

I've taken these photos to show the horrid condition of the basement now. One day, I'll look at these photos and have a hard time remembering how bad it was. I hope.
