Hands down, the most common question I get asked is “What’s your next project?” and sadly, I always have an answer to this, as I’m addicted to projects. At least I can admit it:)?
So, to answer this question, our next big project in 2014 is renovating the basement. I’ve been slowly gathering ideas for some time now, and I *think* things are coming together (at least in my head). We’re lucky that our basement is already semi-finished, meaning we currently have electrical and plumbing already in place. All we need is insulation, sheet rock, and flooring, and we’ll be in business. It also has great light-it’s a true “daylight” basement.
What will this project exactly entail? The basement renovation will include a family room (with a fireplace that also needs some serious love), a closet laundry area, a full bathroom, and a large bedroom. So there’s lots of nooks and crannies to pay attention to, and it will all be tackled at once. Whew. To get a feel for the layout of the basement (which will stay the same) check out out “before” house tour here.
Again, we’re just in the research phase of all this right now, but it’s certainly a project we want to tackle this Spring. A few design boards are coming soon:)!
