I look forward to the time when bank holidays are all about long walks and catching up with friends and family but at the moment they are mainly used for DIY and this weekend has been no exception. The Husband’s dad came a few weeks ago and started to help make some fitted bookcases for the basement and he’s been back this weekend to move them along.
The basement had been finished to a point where we were using it daily and The Husband had a nice office down there but unfortunately it is currently back to being a building site. As with all the rooms in this house it seems to be one step forward and then ten steps back but we’re getting close to another big transformation down there.
I’m always going on about the lack of storage in this house but I won’t be able to moan for much longer! We have boxes of books located all around the house so it will be great to finally unpack them. Not only that but it will also mean we can start clearing out the two rooms that are currently full of things that don’t have a permanent home (mainly kitchen equipment, DIY tools, books and our bikes).
The new bookcases are all in the ‘main’ room down in the basement (not the Husband’s office) and there are three units that have been built…
