The Basement Addition Update

Jan 27th, 2009 Posted in Home Improvement | 4 comments »

Brian and I (well, mostly Brian) designed and built our home in Sherwood almost 5 years ago.  We left the basement unfinished and, over the last several years, have been slowly adding on to the house and completing the “downstairs.”  It’s turning out sooo well. I’m actually glad that we waited. Our design has grown better over time — and so has the square footage we added 🙂  Soon we will have a reading/study room on the main floor, stairs and a new bathroom, bar and entertainment room downstairs. 

The most progress recently has been on the bar and the bathroom vanity/sink. Brian installed some gorgeous cabinets from IKEA and tiled the countertops and back splash. It’s still in need of a little grout, but it already looks AWESOME!  Take a look…
