Sooooo, our basement was not really what sold me on the house! It was kinda scary. Truthfully it was a maze down there. With rooms leading off of rooms, it felt like everywhere you turned there was another door. So we took away the door to the main family room and opened it up taller and wider. There was also a small room off the family room. We knocked down that wall and door and opened it right up. There was a support beam that needed to stay so we used that space in the ceiling and added monkey bars and a ladder up to the bars. The kids LOVE it. Attached to the monkey bars are some rings that the kids also love to swing on. Daylan did some built-ins along the wall for all the toys and games. And finally the carpet is now something the kids can play on without me worrying about them getting skinned knees! So no more paneling, or orange carpet or fluorescent lighting...lol. wow. Thank you for all your hard work Day! I am so lucky to have you. This is now one of our favorite rooms.
