Basement: New Windows & Paint on the walls.

At last, every single window in this house is new and air leak free! Horay!

They put in the new basement windows and started painting the same day. They got a first coat on almost everything, just not the stairway and part of the family room.

I just flew through quick when I was on my way out the door, so I only got a few shots worth showing...

I went over choosing colors in this recent post.

Up first is the Spearmint Stick in the laundry room. I like, but I'm not sure...

Here is the family room with one of the new windows. The wall straight ahead and to the left have the White Clay color on them. The walls on the left are white primer. I'm hoping that once there is trim up with a stark white that it will show better. I may not every be able to capture it well on camera though.

Here is that window close up. I'm not sure why the walls ended up looking orange... But we have three of these. Two in the family room (one at each end) and one in the laundry room. They are a few inches taller then the previous windows. And the one shown above, we will for sure need to add a window well once it warms up. Below you can see some dirt and snow just outside of it.

 Finally the bedroom/office. The window makes such a huge difference. The image without the egress window shows the room with just primer and the left shows the Silver Drop gray I went with with the egress window. Again, the color is hard to show at the moment, there is also no light fixture, so I had to work with the natural light that was there.

It's not the best view, but that extra light is great!

Up next will probably be trim and things like touch ups before the carpet arrives. Bill and I plan to tile the laundry room ourselves, so we need to squeeze that in somewhere too. We're also going to put in some cabinetry, so we have to get that purchased, assembled, and installed as well.
