Oh how I wish I had taken "before" pictures of our basement when we first moved in. Let's see if I can describe it for you; new and bare, block walls, cement floor, open joist ceiling, a furnace unit dead center of it all. That pretty much describes it. I do have some photos of it "in progress" but I'm not going to post those till it's all done. Except for the one I'm posting today because my Mom wants to see what the new floor looks like. Even though the floor is not completely done (as you can tell by the tools and what not all over the place) there is only about a 5 foot wide strip along the far wall left to go in.
More to come as the project progresses. By the way, it may be a while. We've only been working on this for the last 2 1/2 years :)
