My new favorite tool from Google: Google SketchUp! Aside from the water issues mentioned in the previous post, I have a vision for what our basement could become. I think I might get a side gig as an architect.

Thoughts? Comments? Feedback? I've got lots of time before we're ready to build this.

***And just for the record, the TV was Justin's idea.

i think you'd be really happy with a 1/2 bath in the basement. Especially with the bedroom down there.

Yes I totally agree. We are planning a 1/2 bath--it's that small room sandwiched in the upper center part of the drawing between the laundry room and storage room. I think we could accommodate a shower down the road by punching into the storage room but we aren't thinking it is super necessary for our needs--maybe the next owner will want to take on that project. We have 2 showers in the house already and it's just the two of us.

We definately want to keep the bathroom over in the vicinity of where it is drawn because all of the sewer and water lines are right there.

I came across your basement layout through a google image search. It looks great, looks like you've got a real knack for SketchUp! Your total dimensions are really close to the dimensions of my basement so I'm going to adapt your sketch to fit my needs. Thanks for the ideas! Good luck with your renovations!
