Wow I can’t believe it is finally done. As always this took a lot longer than I expected. The one thing I can say is that I am so glad we tackled this project. Again our house is very small, so having a basement we can use makes a world of difference. We can now take some of the toys and keep them downstairs. Our goal was three things:
- Have a place for the kids to play
- Since space is limited in our house, we wanted to be more organized and have things along the wall
- I wanted a place to store most of my tools
Okay, the million dollar question, did we stay under $750?
- Paint – $338
- Paint Supplies – $32
- Lumber – $213
- Rugs (Front of white board, washer dryer) – $27
- Kids play Rug – $21
- Whiteboard – $14
- New Dryer Exhaust – $17
- New Drain Cover – $14
- Curtains – $22
Well, we are finally done. In fact we had a small little pizza party down there. Well actually it was pretty much the kids watching me hog down a pizza. We now have a place for all my tools and the kids have a pretty cool play area. Nothing like mixing kids with a concrete floor and power tools?
