    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers." Keith Meldahl Happy one week anniversary, you cuties.

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!
