How to up your square footage by 30%

It took us over two years, but the basement is finally finished! Okay, my compulsion toward absolute accuracy forces me to admit there are still a few little things we have to do yet. But if I let that stop me from posting photos, none of you would ever have seen pictures of the upstairs of our house, either.
And so, without further ado (and without furniture or anything else) I present--The Basement!
The big girls' room.


The Family Room


Underland from the back hallway


All this open space just makes you want to run . . .


or wrestle.


Underland from the little door.


All the other photos are from a week and a half ago. Since then we have tastefully decorated our new TV room with vintage furniture, including Casey's grandmother's antique TV stand. We are well on our way to making the basement the nicest part of our house.

I'm not quite sure what Underland is (my first thought was that it had something to do with underwear, but I quickly ruled that out), but I think I want to live there. It looks fantabulous!

All visitors are welcome! Come out and play with me. And bring your kiddies three (or four.) Lie on the carpet with me. Slide down my back stairs into my basement door and we'll be jolly friends forever more.
