So, the first step in getting the basement finished, otherwise known as, the "mancave with girlie parts", is to CLEAN OUT THE BASEMENT.
Which I actually did over Memorial Day weekend. But a few things have delayed the start - fire, family reunion/vacation, family visiting, delays with the bank loan, you name it! Meanwhile, my house as been a mess (it looks like I'm moving with the boxes and stuff out of place).
THE GOOD NEWS IS THEY FINALLY STARTED YESTERDAY!!!
