Looks like someone's been gaming down there already!

i still don't understand how there's what looks to be a full window in a basement.  i thought you were deep underground.

Thx.. so much work left, but the really hard parts are over.

That window you see is a window well and there are two of them. I'll hang blinds over them when the painting is done.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... a window well.  That makes sense.  So you have secret entrances too?!?!!?!?   That's awesome.
Do you put a fence around that or something so the kids don't fall in?

They have grates on top to keep critters out, but yeah, if there was a tornado or something, it's a way to get out...

Yeah, I tried to setup a game space down there, it was just so dingy and uncomfortable, I knew I had to do it right.

Nice updates! hdinred, your basement looks almost like my best bud's man cave. He's not a big video gamer but he has old school stuff connected up (NES, Atari 2600, PS2 and PS3). His place is awesome since it's our prime poker spot, darts, pool table and a full fledged bar. You're gonna love yours once you are done

Hopefully this year I'll finally own a home of my own. Some of you might remember that back in 2007/2008 I started looking and my last company sent me off to Italy. Because of that whole ordeal and the massive corporate fuckups botching my taxes for years, I couldn't purchase a home (nor travel to Italy without getting arrested for tax evasion lmao). Now that is all resolved, got my a full time new gig and am ready to start house hunting.

Tough week..

Hired an out-of-work relative to do some painting for us. He showed up late, was drinking beer by 11 AM, did an awful job, got paint on the carpet and left before finishing the job..

Put down a laminate floor, which I promptly had to pull up and put down again..

Plumbing connections, to hook up the sink in the bathroom, are both leaking..

Just frustrating!
