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!!

Wow that is looking good! We are still slowly working on our basement. We're not nearly as far along as you guys. Nice work Tommy.

The basement will be great a place to party! Holden looks like a little boy now and McKenley is so much bigger and really cute. Way to put Tommy to work.

How exciting, your going to have so much room you won't know what to do!

My sleeping bag will fit nicely in that corner there! I am skeptical that Tom did all that, I'm sure most of it was done by Tom's little friend Jonny.... Man that dude was freaky, as much as I miss living by you guys, I don't miss Jonny, that kid would stare at me for hours.
