The finished product isn't fancy, but the kids are thrilled. We surprised them with the basement room yesterday afternoon and they've been playing down there nonstop ever since. The dinner table was abandoned a couple of times last night so that they could go down and "make sure the basement is still there" and they both headed straight downstairs when they woke up this morning. We ran into a few problems along the way including three holes accidentally drilled in the furnace ducts, discovering after applying sealant to the window that it needs to dry for several days before we can paint it, and being one square short on floor covering, but all the effort was worth it. Success!
