Basement Dec. 13, 2011 – Day One (+ “pre-game”)

So, I’m on Christmas break (woo hoo!).

As usual I didn’t use much vacation this year, so I’m off (except Sundays) for the rest of the year.

So what relaxing and rejuvenating activity can will I be doing? I’m finishing part of my basement…

Actually it will be fun. It’s a good challenge, makes me think, and best of all, I’ll get some “alone time.” I guess the real “best of all” is when I’m done, I’ll have a legitimate office at home! (though I’m not doing the flooring or finish work (like texture or painting) yet, and one wall will be built-in book shelves, that will wait until later… But, it will be a “mostly finished” room 😉

This is the “Pre-Game” getting ready (Friday Dec. 9)… (I’ll add pictures daily):
