Basement Renovations

When we moved into our house two years ago, a huge bonus/selling point was the huge unfinished basement. Not really knowing what all it entailed we thought how easy it would be to finish the basement down the road. It did not take long with Ella to realize how nice it would be to have the basement finished to have a place for her to play. Then when Miller arrived and we lost our guest room we quickly saw the necessity of having an extra bedroom downstairs! So, we are finishing our basement!!!! However, after talking with several builders, Murray realized it was going to be a little more involved than we thought. He had originally thought that he would do it with the help of his dad, my dad and some friends. But now that construction has started, we are soooo thankful that Murray is not doing the work. It would have taken years! We are just thrilled and cannot wait to have the extra space. These pictures are actually after the first day that the work was started. Construction began mid Feb and is supposed to be finished May 1! Stay tuned for progress pictures.
