The Home S-t-r-e-t-c-h

This is our family blog - so I decided (with some encouragement) that I should make my annual contribution (Ryan speaking).

I apologize in advance to any of you who were eagerly anticipating one of Destinee's witty, inspiring and endearing posts. Not today folks, not today.

It's been a while since we've posted a status update on the basement progress... so long, in fact, that we have pretty much been able to wrap it up. It's finally done (well, 99.37% done - still have an outlet cover and a couple of speaker connection boxes to hook up). We have taken some photos of the finished room, but I thought it would be more fun to build the anticipation a little more and post a few progress pics from a couple weeks ago first. So here ya go...

Our new closet and framework for the railing along the stair well.

a shot of the play room and newly textured ceiling

you can never have too many ceiling texture shots - this one's looking towards the TV nook and other end of the room

So there you have it. We will try to get some photos of the finished room up this weekend so stay tuned (they will be much better -Dest took the finished photos as opposed to my feeble attempts above). Until next year, -Ryan
