Hidden Room Under The Stairs - The Before

Truth is I am so behind that a lot has happened since these photos. Tim has been trucking right along on the progress putting in late hours after work. The best part? This is the first time he has done anything like this and you would never guess! It has been a great experience for him getting to know drywall, electrical, mud + tape,  and more in a small hidden space where a little trial and error is ok.

We were pleasantly surprised when got in there how much actual space there was and how nicely finished off it was. There is enough useable space that even I can comfortably sit in there and Stella can stand up at most points.

Since these "before" photos happened we bought all of the flooring, drywall, and beadboard. We flipped a electrical outlet around from the living room, put in most of the drywall, and are now just getting ready to mud and tape. Oh! Tim also widened the door to accommodate adults and building materials a little better. That threw a little wrench in the bookcase door plans so it is back to the drawing board on what will and won't work for that.

So stay tuned in the next week or so for some more photos of the transformation!
