it's done!!!

These pictures are lousy, but our basement is finally and totally done! The carpet went in this morning, so now everything smells a little like carpet glue. The kids have already enjoyed a good romp and game of tag on the lush, soft floor, and soon we'll start to move our stuff downstairs. I want to enjoy just a few hours of clean, empty space first.

Tag on the new carpet:



Nice big window:



Built-in cupboards for toys and some crafty stuff:



Built-in shelves at the half-wall:



Now we have a week to get all our stuff in order before Stuart's parents come for a nice, long visit. They just retired and are taking a giant road trip across the country to see family. This summer is really flying by.
