Hey there! How ya doin'? Me? I'm fine. Been up since 3:30 a.m. this morning, since my brain apparently was just done with that whole "sleep" thing for the night, but otherwise, I'm cool.
Wanna see what we've got going on over here at the Smith house? You KNOW you do! So here we go...we're starting a new remodel project today. The basement is being de-90'd, and brought into a current style that isn't full of light-stained oak and shitty windows that let in cold air.
So I'm starting with the "before" pics today, and then later this week, there will be progress pics of the demo (or what I also like to refer to as the "destruction"), and the new framing and all that cool stuff.
This is what the current view is when you walk into the basement. The bar is handy...it's got a sink, and originally had a dishwasher that was awesome for all the glassware, but that stopped working about a year ago, or so. Which made me sad. But really, having a full bar down there has been super handy. So we'll keep that element, of course, but it'll be moving to an entirely new space.
Aaannyyywayy...we're donating these cabinets.
This is the current TV/entertainment area of the room. There are nooks and crannies that would be much better used as dart board areas, and locations for the pin ball machine we wanna get. So that's why we're moving the couch over to the other side of the room. And also...
See? So pretty! ;) THIS is where a shuffleboard table will go, and is also where the bar will be moving to. We'll build a wall to close off the utilities, and that water heater will be removed and replaced with a tank less unit, and all will be happy and fun.
It won't be done until the end of April, if we're lucky. Might be longer...not sure. But you can be sure that I'll be documenting the fun right here on this blog. And I'll link to Facebook each time I update, too. Wish us luck!
