Remodeling Our Basement

Ok so Mr. Clean and I have been in proud home owners for almost 5 years now. In July it will be 5 years. We have been remodeling our basement for 3 years now. To give my husband the benefit of the doubt...he did build a 2 car garage during that time as well.

To give you a better idea of how much we need this to be done... we have a 2 bedroom 1 bath house. There are 2 adults and little ones. We need more room. Don't get me wrong sharing my bedroom with NoNo was great at first but now I need my privacy!

Do Mr. Clean is making our master bedroom down there with 2 walk in closet and a bathroom. As well as a family/theater room, kids play area and laundry room with a craft area for me and the kiddos.

So here are some pics of our work in progress...

Before...Not really a before since we studded out the entire thing ourselves but we aren't good at before shots...we never remember!


During... This is the kids area

During...this is my future bathroom

This the future master

This is Mr. Clean's custom built entertainment center with book cases for me on either side

You can also see my back lawn is in need of some TLC...

Well well...that's some great work there.

Are y'all doing the work yourselves?

I'd love to have a basement that we could make into a usable space...

Yes we are doing all the work ourselves and it has saved us a ton of money. I thank God that I have a husband that knows how to otherwise we wouldn't have half of what we have now.

Wow, that is so awesome! I knew you were remodeling, but I didn't know it was such a big project. That's so great that he knows how to do everything!

Congrats - it all looks amazing. I love watching projects happen. I'm on the final leg of the decorative re-do of our living room. A long time coming :)

Totally...if y'all need any help - let me know.

Not only can I draw a house - I know how to build them too. :)

Hopefully - I'll have some before/after shots of our dining room. (my wife's been posting pics on facebook).
