I think it’s time for another basement room reveal! How about it?
If you’re new here, I’m slowly working my way around to posting pictures of our house. It’s nothing fancy, hence the name – The Krampy Shanty. In fact, it’s like the opposite of ‘fancy’ since we bought this house as a foreclosure for $49k in 2014. It was (surprisingly) move in ready, but we did some changes upstairs to add value, along with finishing out most of the basement! We’ve put about $19k into these renovations and doubled our finished square footage.
I revealed our new playroom a few weeks ago. By far the biggest and best addition to our new space! And now it’s time for our master bedroom reveal!
Again, nothing fancy. We like to keep things super simple over here. In our eyes, bedrooms are for sleeping and that’s about it. We love the idea of big common spaces and small bedrooms. We want to promote unity and hospitality in our home. Not that large bedrooms always work against that idea, but when you have a small space to begin with, you need to maximize your square footage to help reach those goals!
So all that to say, sorry this is a boring “reveal” because… it’s a (king) bed. And a shelf. And a lamp. And that’s about it!
It was exciting to be able to put in an egress window into this space, so now we feel safe having people sleep downstairs and having a fire escape. And we can also list this as a bedroom when we sell the house down the road. All our work is to code, we’ve got the stickers to prove it! If we were going to do it, we wanted it done right.
You might notice our closet is… sparse. This closet space is actually more for being able to call this a bedroom when we list our house one day, and it will be a future ‘nursery’ for newborn Kramps down the road (Lord willing). It’s also a spare napping room now if someone is sick or having bedtime issues and needs their own space. We have another space for our clothes – more on that another day. But for now… PICTURES!
