Charles, Niki and I are putting finishes touches on the basement. Charles and I picked up a coffee table and two end tables at Pier 1 and a rug at Kohl's. It really is the room I envisioned. There is an area to relax and watch tv or read.

We are sports fanatics. The Orioles, Ravens and Terps are welcome at our house anytime. We have given them each their own wall. There is a hallway we are working on for our family sports photographs. My daughter, Niki, has played basketball, lacrosse, soccer, and softball. Sean, my son loves baseball, softball, football and rugby.

We are hoping to purchase a couple of Raven's photographs. Training camp is here is Westminster and my daughter has a photographer friend who has taken some good pictures. Hopefully, we can get a few of those to add to the Ravens wall.
The dogs also love the basement. It is always the coolest room in the house in the summer and the warmest in the winter. We are all pleased with the results so far.

I'm jealous. Our house is about 110 years old and the basement can get a bit moist after a heavy rain. We have put a pool table down there but that's about it.
Anyhow, go O's - although they are not faring much better than the lowly Indians for the first half of the season.

My basement is pretty awful. I am jealous too. I always love to read blog entries about home projects.

Very nice!!!
Our office is located in our basement, I call it my exercise room since I am up and down the stairs a hundred times a day.
