You have really worked well to give lovely finishing touch to the basement, where every corner has its own story, but a modern pool table would have given the required sparkle added with sporty look to the basement.

We have had wood paneling in our basement for over 15 years and have decided that it is time for a change. I like what was said about how the basement is the heart of your homes mechanical systems. Thinking ahead would be a good thing to to install extra electrical circuits if you might need them in the future. I will talk to my husband about this before we start the project.

I also thought this was a great idea to think ahead.. why should we stop at this one project? It's our home, we should shoot for the stars, right? From Stephanie and Michael in Virginia! My son Michael has Cerebral Palsy and we have what is called an "accessible home", like wide doorways and a wide hallway. But there is so many more ways to give him more Independence! It's just about having motivation and the means to pay for it! Be blessed, everyone! We all can dream!
