The Underbelly

The underbelly of our home is a dark, cinderblock, unfinished basement.

It sounds scary (and kind of looks scary, too), but the space is great for storage — and at 1300 square feet, it has amazing potential for additional living space one day.

The hubs spent the better (or worse, depending on how you look at it) part of today organizing our bicycles, Christmas ornaments, tools, wedding gifts, extra framed photos, etc. in our basement.

Now we can actually see the floor (it's been invisible for the last two months) and the space is so much more functional. I think my favorite part, however, is that Dan uncovered many wedding gifts we hadn't used and I forgot we had! It's like Christmas in May!

Wedding presents stacked in the basement. Also note the TP. To quote our neighbor Adam, "Now we know where to go for toilet paper when the apocalypse comes..."

1300 sq ft?! Just the basement?! Girl, in NYC they would make that into 2 1-bedroom apartments and call it spacious!

When we have some money one day, we look forward to pimping out that square footage!

Steffi, I love my wardrobe, too. I wish there were a good place for it upstairs. :)
