Coming together!

Things are finally getting finished in the basement and nursery...and none too soon. These pictures are bit "old" as we finished the flooring and wiring of the outlets about 3 weeks ago.  In fact I'm even working in the new sewing room finishing curtains for the nursery.

Final flooring


The laminate went down sorta quick, but the directions lied.  We still had to improvise and hammer each joint in to make sure they locked properly before moving to the next row.  It was not a "one person" job especially in the beginning, but slow and steady wins the race.


The major stuff is done, minus the drop ceiling we plan to install a bit later this year with new lighting, base molding around the floor edge and the windows being framed out.  We just needed to finish it enough to move everything around.  Hooray for goals being met!  Chris' man cave is still a WIP (work in progress) though.  We're still, rather HE is still working on getting his final top coat of drywall mud on.  I hope he can manage to get that done and sanded before the baby arrives.  The finishing coat of drywall mud is always the most annoying stage imo but once you get past that it's a cake walk to paint, floor and wire the rest of the room.

Keep your fingers crossed he feels motivated this week!  I need to take a few shots of the new room even though it's a bit in shambles with things still in boxes and tubs.  I was able to keep the same layout for my tables.  I hope to get a closet and a few other storage odds and ends in a few months once things settle back down.
