swap and basement

Last weekend went to xplains for the annual bike swap. Ronkos put up the bartz bros and we all had a marvelous time. Except for saturday morning when we felt like hell and smelled of fermented sugars. Went to the swap with a pocket full of cash and left with a pocketful of cash. No splurging for me this year. Really I have all I need/want and more. Lucky me! Lucky all of us, it was a theme... or looking for parts we needed hurt our head to much.

All together though it was a fantastic weekend with the ronko fam, seeing the hoenish fam, and sharing a few with Samio.

Got a jump on the basement. Closed in wall to the bar for a pass through. Framed a closed wall for the bathroom, and got all my nailing surfaces ready for the 15 foot bedroom wall, aka "cb's room".

Next its get cbs wall done and get the bathroom and closet walls up.

Its Go Time

A while back I showed a picture of my bikes lined up in the basement. In the back ground were bare walls and cement floors. Now picture a basement with just bare walls and cement floors. I could show that again as the before picture but you are smart enough to get the idea. What is ahead of me... a basement remodel. Specifically a bedroom, a bathroom, a large rec room, a bar, an office, and a sauna. 1250 sq feet of additional home for my family and friends to come visit and stay. The intent is more like a mother in law suit or little appt.

So tonight I started. I hauled 100 2x4's in a variety of lengths down to the basement. I have all my tools, saws, guns, and compressor ready to go. Tomorrow I start building walls and doorways to make my rooms.

Right now I am excited to start. We will see how long that lasts.

Pics to come as progress happens.
