Coming right along, and the owners hope to be in around the new year. The contractor is doing a great job, and the project is one to be proud of. The interior finishes are really setting up nicely, and I can’t wait for the family to move in and make it home.

The basement becomes a solution for the grade as well as a fantastic base to attach to. If my backyard looked like this, I’d love this little studio. Here is […]
