I'm very excited to report our basement is finished. We put down flooring, added recessed lighting, painted the wood panels, and added trim. And by we I mean http://www.jacobreid.com/index.php . The next step will be to put up some curtains and hook up a TV. The hard part is done and now we just need to decorate. Nate is much happier to keep his desk down there now that it doesn't feel like a dungeon.
