I don't think I mentioned this! Big news!
Not long before Christmas we finally decided to bite the bullet and contact some contractors to get our basement finished. We've had the money for some time but were dragging our feet for no good reason. I was finally able to convince The Husband that a finished basement is the only way our teenager will invite his friends over to the house and since he's currently in 8th grade and high school will come later this year, it's time.
We had grand plans of contacting three contractors but after we met with the first company, we decided we would not do any better price-wise. They are an established company and more or less guarantee the work will be completed in 4-6 weeks from the start date. SOLD!
We've been busy readying the basement for this process and we're still waiting on the township to issue the permits. We hope that work will start later this month and be finished right around our teen's 14th birthday (with any luck).
I am very excited to know that soon all of The Husband's car models will finally live in the basement forevermore. It will most definitely be a man cave and I'm fine with that. Just leave the upper floors to me and the dogs! Ha!
I will of course document the process in pictures. It's so nice to know someone else will be doing all of the hard work! (We will paint and do the flooring ourselves)
I've been waiting a very, very long time to have a finished basement and 2016 will finally be the year it gets done!
