installing a basement window.

while this post is not technically a do-it-yourself, i am still classifying it under diy.

why diy? because even though the physical labour wasn’t, the idea was completely my own! ;-)

dc97f043-4302-4c7c-b676-a642586baaf1_zps299702c2when we bought our home last summer,  the basement was unfinished and without windows. 

352cbed5-7f03-46fd-b13c-aebc420a0be7_zps777477c5our goal this summer was to hire a contractor to build a bedroom in our basement, thus beginning our quest to finish it off. (i just hate the idea of wasted space in a small home to begin with.)

first task, install a bedroom window. check!

second task, frame, drywall, lay flooring, add electrical, and paint a bedroom. stay tuned … 

here are the after photos, friends!

  • Early morning post (before I start painting our living room walls). We viewed our first acreage in four years last month. While the outside of the property was one hundred times more appealing than the interior, it’s inspired us to see more. We’re country folk at heart- both being raised on farms and acreages. We probably will not stop until we find that piece of prairie land that whispers our names. 🌾💛 Happy birthday, husband. I’m sorry that your birthday doesn’t always go as planned. Also, transitioning from you being gone for weeks, to then being home for a few hours, only to leave again is anything but smooth at first. But know that Remy and I do love and appreciate you so much. I hope that you have a wonderful year (since we’ll probably be spending much of it apart), wherever you now are.
