MY BASEMENT RENOVATION


Role: Design, Construction, Visualization



WHY AM I SHOWING YOU THIS PROJECT? 

Because working with your hands is an important learning tool.  


What is it about: This project was labor of love.  My wife and I decided to use our basement for more than a giant storage... mess. I designed and rendered our space to be functional - in two halves.  One half with storage & mechanical systems and the other a multi purpose room for TV watching, small play space and some general exercising. Pretty standard.  I did all the work myself, save for some plumbing and electrical that definitely needed professionals.  

The Key Learning: There is nothing as satisfying and all consuming than making something with your own hands. I loved the slow, methodical progress as each stud, screw, and layer...and layer... and layer... of drywall mud went on.
