The Reveal

Here, finally, is the reveal of our renovated great room. Gone are the broken fireplace, the multiple layers of cheap old carpet, the heinous plaster “decoration” that used to mar two walls, and the basement-y smell. All the structural issues have been fixed, and now we have a home theater (here you can see the projector in the upper left corner of the picture and the rolled-up movie screen on the opposite wall). There are speakers in various places, including the one to the left of the fireplace. The sound quality is awesome. The fireplace facade was created from real stone by a real mason. We debated over the carpet color for eons, but finally selected this shade of gray for its combination of neutrality and relaxing coolness, and for the moment the room has that wonderful new carpet smell. One more building inspector has to sign off on the room. Then we have to buy furniture. Eventually, there will be a mantel over the fireplace and shelves to both sides. But, as of now, the room is essentially done and soon to be used!
