Basement Banter: Man Cave Vs. Family Room

There has been a lot of talk about what exactly to do with the basement, whether it should be a dedicated shit hole man cave or if we should set it up as more of a family room.  I have been on the fence since we spend little to no time down there now but that could just be because it was uninhabitable. 

The wall is hideous we know, feel free to laugh or cry

After much debate Shawn and I have decided to split the room into 2 sections.  You can see in the picture that there is a wooden pillar
on the rock wall and that is where we are going to split the room. 

The window side will be the family room side, the other side will be a semi man cave.

I am going to be taking some measurements and some floor plans so I don’t do a lot of moving items in vain.

Other side of the room

We still have some organizing and sorting to do before we start to move things around.  We need to go through Peyton’s toys and find what can be used for the new baby and what can be donated or thrown out. 

What you can’t see in this picture is the 7 garbage bags full of baby clothes I have piled on the stairs, that we also have to sort through.  Just waiting until the weekend to do that dirty work since Friday we find out if we are having a boy or a girl, who knows, we might be chucking all the clothes right back into storage.

Now onto the obvious elephant in the room, the infamous Rock Wall.  Yes, it gets its own caps because this wall has become like another pain in my ass person in my family.  I just have no idea what it is, who’s great idea it was, what it’s made of?  I think I have decided to just paint over it and ignore it for the rest of my life.
