Finishing our basement

4:18 PM Saturday, March 22, 2008

We have been working on our basement for about a year. I think I am safe saying that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I took some pictures to show off the progress being made. The trim is just about finished and that leaves caulking, paint, and carpet!! If any of you know someone who likes to do caulk, let me know. I will post with more!

This is Emily's room. John built in a window seat, built in bookshelves and a built in desk.
Lucky Girl!

Here is Emily's nice large closet with a built in dresser.

The bathroom downstairs is nicer than the bathrooms upstairs! We had it tiled and it

looks SO good!

Here is the main room with all of the mess and tools.
The finish guy made our fireplace mantel. It still needs to be stained, but it is very pretty and very well made.


  1. Wow! What an improvement from when we were there in December. You guys have really been working hard! Great job!


  2. It looks amazing. I can't wait to see the finished project. Emily's never going to want to come upstairs after she moves down there!
