It was decent sized, probably about 12 by 20. So not bad, but when you consider that we want a bar, and a sectional and a big screen and a hotdog cooker, there's not a lot of room. And of course it had paneling, because what family room is complete without paneling.
There was also a bedroom, the "Coca Cola" room, with wallpaper and border and cement floors, and paneling on two of the walls. This was one of the 5 bedrooms. But these are all the "BEFORE" pictures! Because.....
We tore down the paneling (just for full disclosure-this was actually done probably about 5 months ago.)
We tore out the ceiling in the bedroom (again like 5 months ago).
And then this weekend the real fun was had. This is everyone punching, kicking, and karate chopping through the walls.
Oh yes, good times were had by all.
This is why they come to hang out with us, we do typically put them to work......but it usually involves demolition. And what almost 10-year old and 14-year old don't like destruction!
