Once upon a time, in an unfinished basement far away...

It's getting exciting around here! At least for me.

I have a full-time job where I am fortunate to work from home about 70% of my time. Before we moved, I had a great home office that was PERFECT. In the new house, there have been so many MUST DO and REALLY MAKES MORE SENSE TO DO projects that we kept putting off finishing a space for the office. And, because of my work, I need to be behind closed doors; thus, I have been working in different parts of the Unfinished basement.

Right now I am shoved into the room with the Furnace and Hot Water Heater. It's MAYBE 4 1/2 feet deep, so I keep banging into the door knob behind me. Here! I just swiveled around in my chair and took pictures to the left and right, front and rear.

Go ahead Fergie, say it! It's G-L-A-M-O-R-OUS! But not much longer!

What was Unfinished basement became this:

Then THIS!

Pete (our FABULOUS mud and tape guy) completed the drywall finish today and Harper and Savannah volunteered to help me with some painting. These wonderful ladies did almost ALL of the Wall priming. Thanks, ladies!

It shouldn't be much longer!
