Budz! Things are really happening over here at la casa Allen. The basement is feeling more and more realized every day, and I can’t wait to see the finished results. I seriously dream about it every night, I am beyond excited.
Lots has been happening over the last week and a half, the biggest of these is the framing of the walls and columns and window installation. It is such a game changer to have new windows, I can already tell that it will do huge things for the space. Guys, I don’t know if you know this about windows, but these ones actually open and close, let in light, and aren’t made of glass block – we are so fancy! The framing is nearly done, and I am beginning to see all the hours I put into planning and measuring (and remeasuring) pay off. I can’t wait for sheetrock to happen in mid July!
So here’s a few not so pretty pics of the progress:
Also notice the new copper piping along the support beam. Those copper pipes used to be steel pipes that you could easily bang your head on last week.
Insulated Exterior Walls
Dug Out Egress Window
Retaining Wall For Egress Built
Radiator Pipes Recessed into Ceiling
Vents installed for Dryer and Bathroom
Coming next week, final framing and electricity!!!
It’s going to look (and work) fantastic! I love seeing the progress like this, even though it’s not pretty, it’s really cool to see that vision come to life and be real.
Love your blog, but think about your hand injury way too often. I have a 4 and 2 yo and don’t know what I would do if that happened to me. Hope you are healing well!
