My living room is featured on Remodelaholic today! I'm so excited, so hop on over to let them know how much you love it. Plus, they even called it an "Immaculate Living Room", which is just awesome for me. I'm grinning from ear to ear:)
Building into a hill meant we had to build up and up in order to have the main floor take full advantage of the view, which you can see on display in the kitchen and from the deck. In the process we wound up with an *extra* floor. You could call it a basement, except it has twelve foot ceilings and huge windows. One of the rooms we gained was an empty shell until we decided to make it into a home gym, although with all of the stairs, we could have just used them for a workout.
These lead from the mudroom and garage to the playroom and gym.
The stairs between our "basement" and the main floor.
Our entry with the new piano, and stairs leading up to the bedrooms (butterfly girl's room, master, nursery, orange and navy bedroom, and guest)
The stars between the bedroom floor (you can see a bit of the loft decal in the background) and my husband's office.
We were lucky enough to get my dad's exercise equipment from storage and to buy a secondhand treadmill from my sister's neighbors. Our old TV and stereo found a home down here (our new TV and stereo are upstairs in the living room), which is prefect since I pretty much just want to be on the treadmill watching bad reality TV or watching an on demand video. The floor is made up of rubber-backed carpet squares to absorb more impact than traditional carpet.
Thanks for stopping by!
