The process begins!!

Oh boy! Here we go! We started framing the basement tonight. (I really shouldn't say "we", but rather my brother-in-law.) We changed some doorways, and made new closets in the bedrooms tonight. It's so much fun to see it starting to look how we want it.
My poor dad was trying to figure out which wires had power in them just as I flashed this picture. It about gave him a heart attack when he saw the light from the flash. It was hilarious!

Carter was so tuckered out from all of the fun at the reunion, that he fell asleep laying on the bed in the unfinished room. He slept through the nail gun, hammering, sawing, the whole bit.

All my efforts to clean my basement turned into a gigantic pile on the floor. So sad, but it will be so worth it!

Emily and Bryon brought their dogs over with them. I just thought this was a cute shot of Alyssa and Trigger. He thinks he's a lap dog, but he's HUGE! He's a funny dog.

Look at you go! Impressive. I can't wait to see how quickly this comes together.

I love home improvements, but I hate the act of home improving. Good luck-- a basement is a lot of work! You guys will do a great job, I'm sure-- as long as your poor dad doesn't get electrocuted, that is! :)
