Today, I met with our contractor and several subs. This house renovation thing is becoming more real. I am ready!
Here's what we have planned:
- Finishing our basement to add an additional bath, two more bedrooms and a kids 'hang out' space
- A two-level addition. The upper level will be a great room and a dining room. The lower level will be a new laundry room, a workshop and, most exciting to me, a below-ground cold storage room! This will be home to root vegetables, my home canned goods and, at long last, a deep freezer.
- Enlarged decking for entertaining space
- Regrading of our yard
- Clearing trees for additional parking as well as for more sunlight for vegetable gardening. Dare I hope that a chicken coop is in my future?! :)
