Now that we have put our house hunting on hold, we have decided to renovate another of the rooms in our basement.
Last year we renovated half the basement, but left the other as we just did not know what to do with it. Well, the other day Chris had the great idea of turning one of the rooms into a home cinema room. We had considered this option before but never got around to it, so we are going to do it now.
We should get a lot of enjoyment out of it as we like watching films and if or when we do decide to sell it should be a selling feature to the buyer – particularly the man. The woman will hopefully like the kitchen and the man the home cinema – there’s marketing for you!
So, that is our new project – did I say “our”?
Currently the room looks like this…Stay tuned for updates!
We have both had rotten colds so not felt all that great, but had to work like the clappers to get the basement finished. I am pleased to say that is now the case.
We had finished the sunroom first and then completed the office. On Wednesday the carpet fitters came and fitted to carpet down the stairs and in the lobby part of the basement – we don’t know what to call this bit!
It really looks great now. On Saturday we went shopping and bought bits to finish everything off. Things like pictures, plants etc. We are going to order a large bookcase to put my collection of books. I have updated some pics in the album. We are really pleased with the whole thing. I have to say that my husband is quite brilliant at DIY and has done an excellent job. My painting skills obviously played a part too!
Today the granite man came to take our new sink away with him so he can get the hole cut out. We had got the fitting of the counter top in for 19th Dec, but he said he can fit us in on Tuesday afternoon, so I am getting my granite much sooner than anticipated.
We pick the girls up tomorrow for their two week visit, so we will be busy from now till Christmas. We have trips to Toronto and New York planned, so we hope the weather stays good.
