To take the plunge into our basement renovation! After interviewing a couple of contractors, we've decided mid November is a good time to start finishing our basement. I like the idea of wrapping a timeframe around a project, and have all the people work towards a deadline. In this case, timeline is a no-brainer -- Christmas! Who doesn't like to get things done before Christmas and call it a wonderful year?!
The most exciting part of the basement renovation for me ought to be the bathroom. See, I wasn't just talking the talk...I actually drew up a design board again (love this exercise). And yes, I did just order the Hutton vanity from Restoration Hardware.
And after consulting with the Feng & Shui, and thanks to the honest feedback from Shannon at 8Foot6, I've decided to go with straight walls around the utility room. Toilet is also relocated as supposedly it's bad Fengshui to have it directly face the door. So here you have it, our final basement design plan that's Fengshui-blessed and also signed off by our contractor. Three more weeks to go before the project starts...can't wait!
