We lived here for 4 years and rarely used the basement. But with a kid. I'm so glad we have that extra space.
Here are some before and after pics.
Baby k loves the extra space to run and play. Even better when I get laundry done while we play too ha!
Baby k will be starting daycare next week and our plan is to play in the basement every day after dinner before bedtime so we get to play together everyday!
