Stairway to Basement

On our trip out to Oak Haven Wednesday we spotted doors in the garage. Not as exciting as functional doors, but at least we could still get in the house. They do show promise for having an enclosed, secure building soon.

We have a temporary stairway to the basement now. An important next step so the plumber, electrician, and other workers can get up and down. The final stairs will be oak to match the hardwood floor.

Jay is standing in the great room in the picture above. I'm trying to figure out how the color flow would work if we paint the great room wall behind Jay in Kensington Blue. The stairwell window is the same wall without a break.

The picture below was taken from the great room. I'm printing it off to take to our meeting Monday so Kelli, the amazing lady who helps us know what we want, can explain how the walls will flow when things are finished.

Down into the basement I almost go. I stayed on the bottom step not knowing if the cement was totally dry or not.

Looking down the half of the basement that is going to be finished. At the far end is the guest bedroom with an egress window. The plumbing sticking up is for the guest bathroom. The rest of the area is going to be a rec room.

We're thinking we need a pool table. We most definitely need lights.

This is not a good picture of the other half of the basement because, as mentioned above, I did not leave the bottom step. This is the mechanical and storage area and is huge. We will have plenty of room to collect amazing amounts of things we will forget we have. (No, whoever you are who is thinking of bringing stuff over to store in our basement!)

Looking back up the top half of the stairs from the landing.
