Basement Update #4604

Y'all know we are Dan is finishing our basement, right?
Closet in office framed - check!
We are adding a downstairs office for Dan since he works from home about once a week, a laundry room, a storage room, a kitchen and a huge family room.  We'll have approximately 1250 more square feet of living space when done.
Archway and columns to match upstairs - check!
We started this last March my friends.   My house has been in disarray since that time.  But I see drywall going up in the next few weeks and a light at the end of the arched hallway that Dan built.
 
 Vents framed out - check!
  
 Big mess from hanging all the can lights and getting kitchen plumbing ready - check and check!
 
Tub surround insulated and framed - check!
Still a huge ole mess in my cold storage - check check check!

So proud of Dan - he has done this all by himself (and a little of my Dad's help) and has saved us THOUSANDS of dollars!  Way to go Babe!

I am so there with you!

My upstairs is a mess. My little boy has a corner of my husband's office to call his own. My master bedroom is stuffed beyond stuffed to the point I can hardly walk around.

It has been over a year.

I am more then frustrated.

I am SOOOO envious of you right now. Seriously. I think it will get in the way of our friendship.
