Remodel recap: Two months ago we hired Piper Construction to finish our basement. They were to complete a bedroom with egress window, a bathroom and a family room with a new gas fireplace. Here are a few before pictures.
Then the wizards from Piper Construction, Ben and Phil, went to work and we now have something that we could not be more pleased with.
Here is a list of my favorite things about the remodel.
- The boys hanging out with Phil everyday. Phil being so kind and gentle with them and including them in his work.
- Getting to know Ben and Phil.
- The fireplace
- The details--puppet window, the two extra inches Ben bought us coming down the stairs, the clean and interesting lines.
We are now excited to begin to share our new space. If you're interested, drop in and see it. We are thinking about other ways for us to open this space and work on our hospitality. Amanda and I both love having people in our home, but are not "naturals." I am praying that God will use this new space to push us to growth in this area.
