Basement updates Part 2

Continuing on with the basement changes …. Aubrey built the new wall with plywood. We knew we were going to be installing shiplap (in stock, available at Lowes although go to a bigger Lowes as not all of them have it) so we didn’t worry about needing to add drywall here, which would have been the nicer choice had you just been painting the wall. We also didn’t install it ALL the way to the floor because a cabinet was going in front, and it saved us some money in materials.

We got a BESTA cabinet from Ikea, to act as the built in for the base.

This is in in place, You can see we have extra room on either side, which Aubrey will add in some trim to make it look more built in

The shiplap is starting to be applied and it looks AMAZING.

More to come!

So windows have sat naked for years. (And, potentially why my neighbours may have seen ME naked for years) Continue Reading →
