Simple, rustic, nothing extraordinary in any way really.
But it always held the potential as the easiest spot to add onto our home.
So the machines rolled in....
Actually a 30 by 30 3foot deep hole for our foundation.
I have visions of sugar plums and closets and bathrooms dancing in my head.
Let the Craziness begin!!

Well no point in getting upset, chaulk it up to reno costs.
What to do with 48 inches or garbage?
Yes recycle, but it also turnout to be an excellent lesson in electronics for the girls.
I even had a few goes at it.
Sort of satisfying in a rebellious kind of way.
The innards proved to be too tiny to mess with in the yard, so that ended all that.
Not very often you get to do something like this.
After 8 years, adding 2 little people and a families worth of stuff those perks have started to wear off.
I have stretched my vertical space to lengths that would make Martha Stewart jealously proud.
I have been savvy with processions/furniture and most have a dual purpose, like our ottoman that also houses the vacuum (because there are no closets in this place).
But all that has started to change.
Startin with a false ceiling we had put in.
Now we'll have 2 bedrooms upstairs, one for each girl.
I can't tell you how excited they are.
This is the right time too, they are definitely needing their own space.
What!!?? no more losing heat to a 25 foot open dead space??
I have never been happier with a decision in this place.
Now we have a new room.
We painted all the walls white, getting rid of the hideous orange toned stain and have put in pocket lights every 3 feet downstairs, which will brighten up the dark gloominess of a log home.
I feel like we've stepped into the 20th century.
What a difference a day and a half makes.
Feels like we're moving up!!

Oh we had so much fun.
I had it all wonderfully set up with skulls, rats, bugs, bones and such.
But of course my camera was on the counter, so I only captured a few sad courtesy snapshots of the night and all the action.
By far my favourite part was the Fear Factor game I set up.
We had mini maggots, troll scabs, stuffed cockroaches, witches nails, goblins teeth and more.
I saw these on.....yup you guessed it Pinterest, so had to try them.
Too cute heh?
Boy I really dropped the ball on the photos tonight.
I think Halloweeny fun was had by all, well except maybe the parents not so much, having to clean the kids faces afterwards!!
