I can hardly believe that it was 2 weeks ago today that we started construction on our basement and addition. If you have ever been through a home remodel or lived in a construction zone, you know what I'm saying when I'm talking about the noise and the dust and dirt. Since there was only a crawl space under part of our house, there was a bunch of excavating that needed to be done. But let me tell you how worth it the dust and noise here in the house has been! In 2 weeks time we have come from this.....
Pretty impressive considering that there is also a full, brand new basement under our 117 year old home.
Last night was the first time I was in the basement since the floor was poured on Friday and I got a first hand look at where my new quilting home will be. Too bad someone didn't have a camera to capture the moment. I JUST COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW GREAT IT WAS!!! I didn't have my camera with me, but I do have a picture of what it looked like from above on Friday.
Can you believe this is ALL MINE?????? Am I the luckiest person in the world or what?! So during my visit to my quilt cave last night I found myself laying things out in my head and it was BEAUTIFUL! Hubby even surprised me a week ago and told me that he was putting a window in there for me. Now it's below ground, but at least when I'm down there working there will a bit of natural light and I'll know whether it day or night. You know how it is when you're working on something and next thing you know 3 or 4 hours have passed.
The upstairs will have to be finished before I get to move into my space, but that will give me even more time to decide exactly how I want Nina's new home to be. I want her to have the nicest room she could possibly have. She deserves it.
I'll keep you updated on progress. Keep your ideas coming!
