Joe came to visit this week to help us with the framing of the basement. We plan on having an extra room down there along with a "man cave" for Braydon where he can go play. Here are some pictures of our progress so far...
This is before we got started. The white stuff on the walls is insulation.
Wall where the stairs are.
This picture was taken standing where the first picture is looking.
Starting the framing...
This picture shows the new closet (to the left) and the doorway that will lead to the storage area. Later, that will be made into a hallway which will lead to a storage area and a bathroom. We aren't going to do that until we need it. Which is not now. :)
This picture is taken standing at the bottom of the stairs. It shows the wall that will separate the two rooms.
View looking toward the stairs.
Braydon and Joe made a storage area under the stairs that will house all of Braydon's electronics which will be connected to his TV. That way I don't have to look at all the cords or the consoles!!! YEA!! :) It will be enclosed with a door.
You can see the doorway in this picture that will lead to under the stairs where all of Braydon's electronics will be. He also put in some extra support for when he hangs his TV on the wall.
This is the cubby under the stairs. I tried to utilize all the space down there for different types of storage.
It's so amazing how different it looks already! We're really excited to get it finished and have a little more room to enjoy. My dad will be coming out next week to do our electrical stuff for us (outlets and lights). I'll keep you updated with our progress! :)
