I wasn't looking forward to moving into a new home without a finished basement. So in our search I was pulling for one that was finished. After looking at 70 homes we decided on one and wouldn't you know it the darn basement wasn't finished. I was hoping this one wouldn't take me 18 years like the last one. I started 9 months ago and just finished tonight. It was grueling and frustrating sometimes but I'm happy with the outcome. Now it's time to hunt! Good huntin'
