Finishing Our Basement

Well, since Tom had so much time on his hands while he waited for his board scores.. we decided to finish our basement.. it's been good because he'll never have this much time to do it again.. once he becomes a working man!! He had to frame walls, closets.. him and his brother in-law who is an electrician wired it. Then he hung the sheet rock with some help from his uncle. We hired someone to help tape and texture.. and once that was done it took Tom 2 days to prime and paint the whole thing!! With a small amount of my help painting the corners. It's been so fun to see what it has turned into!! Not at all what it looked like when we built it.. we had a custome cabinet made for the bathroom. Now we are hanging doors. The tile guy is coming the 23rd to lay tile..Oh we had all the trim and doors and shelving delivered, we are going to start painting and hanging that!! Most the lights are in.. We are doing good for not having a whole lot of help and for not really having any idea or experience in the matter.. so here are some picts.. more to come later!!


Well, here I am it's almost valentine's day and I am barely blogging about christmas.. we had a great christmas at tommy's parents.. then we went to the cabin for new years, which was fun and we had a great time snowmobiling.
