About Me

Don't Let Your Basement Become Wasted Space

My wife and I recently had a new home built, and while we had few stressful decisions to make, we greatly enjoyed the process and love our new home. Due to budget concerns, we decided to leave our basement unfinished at first. We figured that since we have so much "stuff" that we need to store, like off-season clothing and seasonal decorations, we would just use it for storage. However, we soon regretted not having it finished and felt like we had "wasted space" in our new house that wasn't being put to good use. We turned it into a "mini apartment" with its own entrance that we now rent out to a friend for a little extra income. I love sharing what we learned during the home building process, so I am excited to share our experiences and tips on our new blog! Come back for more construction tips!
