Basement Renovation



We have affiliate links inside this recap.  

Watch out Chip and Joanna, the Proctor team is coming one room at a time.  When we were house hunting a basement was a must, it didn't need to be finished we just needed one.  The house we bought had a huge one, broken into two parts.  We had a plan and it was the first thing we started when we moved in.  Unfortunately, we came across a major water problem, that put a halt on the work inside and we moved outside.  We put in curtain drains and we resealed two of the outside walls the front right and right side when looking at the house.  This was also done between Tim working his job and running his business.  Full plate without a doubt.

A playroom is born.  I have always envisioned a playroom for the kids t have all their toys. A TV for the video games and this room being about to grow with them; from kids to tween to teen hang out.  We were able to start from scratch and add our own touches.  Outlets are everywhere, we even added them to the support beams we then built out.  Recessed lighting was another must for us, so they can fade or be off for movie nights plus two sections, TV and toy side.  Even the playhouse has a light.
