holy fudge that's fast from slabbed poured to framing done! Looks great wotta - love seeing the pics.

Like Piper said, I can't imagine not having a basement; makes life so much easier (until you move and you realize how much junk you've hoarded in the basement! :D )

The one regret that I have with my current home is not having a basement. Next home(3-5 years from now), will 100% have a basement.

Its also the perfect place to banish children too, lol. Ours is not really finished, but the walls are painted with white cement paint, it's dry and well lit, so we have a semi-finished area with a rug that's basically a living room consisting of our old furniture and tv for gaming, have an air hockey table, etc.

I'd like to eventually finish it, but my kids are already in their teens and once they're out of the house for college, not sure I'll need the space finished.

I have a 300 sq/ft room that I need to split into a bedroom and an office. Also have bathroom I need to redo.


We're thinking about doing the same thing.

We went new construction due to out of control Seattle area home prices. First time home buyers. Looking forward to being done with renting.

Sheetrock just went up along with the exterior paint. Closing next month.

Love the colour scheme!


Our portico was framed yesterday. Think gutter and fascia will be done today.

Does anyone here have a whole home water filter on the service line coming into their home? If so, any recommendations?

They also sell whole house systems if you want to go that route.
