Basement Update (finally!)

All the way back in June I posted about us finishing the basement. At that point Erik had begun hanging drywall...and then cross country began and I don't think he worked on it much more after that. He was able to get about half of the drywall hung, but it turned out to be too much work for one person who already had a full time job and a coaching position (not to mention responsibilities as a dad and husband!).

So, last week we FINALLY decided it was time to hire someone to get it done. They finished hanging the drywall today and will be back tomorrow to begin the taping/mudding/sanding process. By this time next week I'm hoping to have my paint roller out!

How exciting! You will get so much use out of that extra space.

It is going to be an awesome addition. Good luck through the process. Can't wait to see what you do with it. You always come up with the greatest design.
