Our basement is screaming...

for an Extreme Makeover!!!
So my brother Dave is up to the task & these following pictures are for him & the disclaimer he must agree to, is that he can't back out after viewing... here is the door to the bottom in between the dining room & the kitchen. The doorway on the right is the (tiny) laundry room that also leads out to the garage.
Here we go...

down into the dark and dreary basement

at the bottom of the stairs on your right is a room framed out with lovely paneling that needs to be removed

to your left is where we want to keep the future storage room

the storage wall continued...

on the right of the basement is where we want the big bedroom with a walk in closet that will fit the needs of four girls (with built in shoe racks like the ones on the movie Overboard, he he)
Dave said if we don't clear out all unnecessary junk by the time he gets here he will organize it for us by removing it all & putting it out on the curb (he's real sweet like that)
So I'll be sure to have it done soon!

This will be a hall heading toward this doorway & on the right we are thinking is where the bathroom will go

Here is the bEAutiful plumbing line that we have to plan around

We + you will remove this odd closet that has remained empty since we've moved in & that may be the bath/shower area

Here is a room they used as an office so the ceiling has to go bu-bye

Now we do have some good working benefits around here such as
1. Treats & snacks between the hours of 8am to 9pm
2. Two naps a day (not from the results of working your buns off downstairs but for the entertainment you will have to provide upstairs to four little girls) just kidding, no not really.
3. You'll get to enjoy the feeling of being the funniest, weirdest, can do no wrong, coolest Uncle ever!
4. Conversations that may not make too much sense but still have entertainment value.
5. You'll get to listen to the soundtrack of Enchanted & dance for hours.

So what do you think Uncle Dave do you still want the job???
