Nana's Day - Building the Basement

Is anybody there?

I know it's been almost a month since I have posted and I am not sure any one is still out there!!
Whether you are or not I am posting anyways!!

Life has been harder than usual lately and it seems faster than usual too.
I have been pushing myself to get more work done on a special new project that I will post about another time. I have also been focused on me and my family and how best to balance it all.  I have spent a lot of time talking with my Heavenly Father and reading my scriptures. I'm not sure I have it all figured out, but I am sure I have the right adviser!

We are steadily working on Nana's house; remember here when I showed you our last project at her house?  
Today I want to show you some of our progress.
Let's check out all the beautiful taped and textured walls and ceilings. This is the point where you can really see what the size and feel of the room will be.

See how hard I'm working?

 Nana worked on the basement and painted a lot of it herself!!! Each week we would come and she would show us everything she painted!!
(If you look close you may see the special aquarium window!!)

Once all the painting was done, we installed and painted all the trim.  
See how I get my kids to do all the tedious jobs? Like nail setting!!!
 Thanks Ashlee!!

Finally, the carpet guys came. We just sat around all day while they worked.
   It was awesome!!
There wasn't enough room to be in the basement while they laid the carpet and
it drove me crazy not being able to watch everything; well I kind'a watched through a basement window!!  
(I know I am soooo weird!!)

We had a great pad put in that was rubberized, so it won't mildew if it gets wet and
the carpet is super soft. She totally loves it!!
Here's a picture plus a sneak peak at the amazing sectional she bought for the basement.
  Ashlee is modeling how to use it or should I say sleep in it!!!

I promise to be back soon this time with more on this basement!!
Thanks for stopping by.
