So far nothing has been done in the basement. We did have 3 different contractors come and look at the space and give us quotes on what it will cost to turn this space into additional living area. So here is a quick BEFORE tour....
This huge space will be our home school room! I'm over-the-moon excited about our new classroom! In the nearest right hand corner is where we are considering adding a 3/4 bath as well.
I did not want to waste any space, this spot under the stairs will be made into a little storage space.
This shot would be if you are standing in the school room and turn around this is what you see. The waall on the right will continue across this space (minus the lattice) with a doorway and this will be storage for canned goods, chest freezer and many other things I suppose.
