Not About a Dog

We are so spoiled in this family: now we each have our own office. After school hours, I have the schoolroom all to myself, Panda has taken over the little 3rd bedroom upstairs, and now Mr. D*S has his own handy space right off the driveway and garage. It's actually what I refer to as the "first basement" room. When we bought the house this is what it looked like. (The boxes and furniture belong to the previous owners of the house.)In this first photo, you can see that the stairs were open and you can see right into the lower basement level.
There is a nice big window, but some nonsensical framing that only went half-way up the wall. The floor was bare cement with scraps of carpet over it. Typical unfinished basement.

Mr. D*S and our friend Peter have just spent the last 4 or 5 weeks putting in a subfloor, framing, insulating, drywalling, etc. Like all renos, it took more time and money than planned, but what a great addition to our useable living space. And now they have replaced the doors to the garage and driveway, a much warmer and safer space as well.
Can you tell that the ceiling is green? And that lovely light on the floor is from the window in the new door to the driveway.
If only it could stay so calm, but we do have to use this room:
Mr. D*S finally has a room of his own to service his sound equipment, play guitar and spread out a little, and he's learned quite a bit about renos in the process. Which is a good thing, because I have designs on the guest bathroom.

  1. I thought I'd left a comment here, but now I see that I didn't, lol.

    That is really impressive work. Maybe S can teach R a thing or two when next you visit. We have a room in the basement that is DYING for attention.
