This is what the basement looked like the day before we moved in, August 2005. A big empty space. The slider is where our dining room will be and the window to the far right… our kitchen. The original plan was to have it done by Christmas 2005. We’re only a year off…

Framing was complete in July 2006 and insulation is in (Aug 06). My hubby lived in the basement every moment he had to spare. This photo in front of the sliders aiming through the kitchen towards the basement stairs. That’s a bedroom behind the far right wall.

This is the sound proofing stuff I talked about the other day. I had fine green dust all over the upper floors for days… This is taken from the dining room looking into the living room space.

Finally there’s some drywall on ‘dem walls! This photo was taken today. It’s from the small window in the dining area towards the living room and that’s the bedroom in the back. (The bedroom will be used by our border from Jamaica) My hubby has to make a box for that post, we’re going to house the sound equipment in sometype of shelving.

This is the drama that is my house.
