Since sometimes the process takes so long it’s hard to remember how ‘bad’ a space was before you started. That’s what makes Before & Afters so exciting to me! This wasn’t a “full remodel’ in the sense that no walls were moved, no major construction, didn’t change trim/doors/windows (for now), it was basic aesthetics and… Continue reading …Final Basement Before and AFTER!
Build weekend came and went in a flash! The Easy Murphy Bed hardware I purchased had an entire book series dedicated to the build…one specifically for making all the board cuts.
