Gated Community

One of the first things we needed to put up was a baby gate. Luckily Evenflo makes a nice looking gate to contain our craziness to one level at a time.


I Love This Bar

Our basement bar is complete, and it has been quality control tested by a few of us to ensure it is fully functional. The bar has a small sink and an opening for a mini-refrigerator. We went with a faux bronze tin ceiling above the bar area. These are a lightweight vinyl tile that look like tin, but they lay in a regular 2′ x 2′ drop ceiling grid. To finish it off we went with some Tiffany style pendants.

Take Off Your Shoes

Carpet is finished! We went with Dreamweaver Stratosphere carpet in the color Leather. The carpet also has a 5/8″ pad with a moisture barrier.

Making a Splash

Our backsplash is installed! We went with 13″ ceramic tiles set on a diagonal with 2″ aged bronze accents in between tiles. The under-cabinet LED lighting really lights up the countertop.
