My fancy tool belt

Here I am with my fancy tool belt.  I thought I would add a feminine touch to my tool belt.

When we renovated our home approx. 7 years ago, we never renovated the basement, so one day I asked myself, "now how difficult can it be to renovate this basement?"  Wow, the beauty of not knowing what you are getting

So, I got a table saw as a gift from my aunt who felt sorry for me, when I told her that I was going to cut wood with a hand saw.

I wanted a space for my 2 girls to hang out in with their friends.  So, open concept with an area for them to watch TV, and basically lounge.

Here are some pictures of the process.


  1. Wow, you are ambitious!! What a huge process, and congratulations for doing the project! What I can see so far looks very professional...and kudos to you...I would be telling my husband to do this.

  2. Thanks very much Debbie. It was a HUGE process. The beauty of not knowing what I was getting into when I said to myself, "now how difficult can it be to renovate a basement?" Ignorance is

    It took me a while as I did it a little at a time, between, work, kids, house, I could not do it all at once. I sure learned a lot though. I now look at home building in a whole new way. My husband is not handy whatsoever. He kept telling me, "just call someone and have them do it"
    I said, now what fun would that I got a real sense of accomplishment at the end. My girls love hanging downs there with their friends. Thanks again for following me. I am following you too.
