Unfortunately we were not immune to the ice storm of last weekend despite having effectively no ice at our house. The power to the sump pump was out long enough to ruin effectively the entire subfloor downstairs. To add to the fun, we were informed by the insurance co. that nothing is covered. Just a sampling of the damage:
Oh well... back to the drawing board. We're not sure yet if we're going to redo the whole thing the same way or maybe just do carpet direct on concrete. We'll see how it goes.

So believe it or not the dining room is done (sort of). I still have some decorating to do and I need to get a couple other things done before I get to that, but it really is done. The kitchen now looks huge because it's mostly empty. That's a good thing... dead space is something we haven't had much of in a long time. Next phase of the house projects has also been kicked off. I'll leave that a surprise for now. Pictures of the dining room will go up soon (really... honestly... I think...)

Paint is now complete in the used-to-be playroom and soon-to-be living room. We're not really much for interior decorating which is why our house has typically just been white (walls and ceilings). I think we're starting to care a little more or something as you can tell from all the color choices. We still have lots of setup to do in the room like moving furniture and such, but we are making some progress...

To avoid the beatings that were being threatened by both readers here, I decided to take the 5 minutes to post a few pictures of the nearly complete basement. As you can see, we're big fans in this house :) The boys love it. We have basketball (in that far dark corner) and foosball as promised. Now if I could just finish cleaning out the last couple of remnants of the basement storage room and the construction project, we could call it done and move onto phase 2. The next round of pictures and commentary here is likely to be the near empty playroom waiting for paint. Enjoy (and go Pats!)
