    Yes, I did, although there were some suggestions along the way from the companies that came in to do the quotes that were incorporated. And I read a lot of posts on this board to see what other people had in their sewing rooms and how they were configured. Although, Murphy's Law, I am sure that once I start using it, I will realize that I forgot some fundamental thing! I've already realized that I am going to have to raise the TV higher so that I can see it through the window. I'll probably have to mount it on the wall as opposed to leaving it on the stand where it is now. I'll show everyone that stuff when it's all done.

He hid them under his bed, lol.... The plumber did retrieve all of his tools before he left....Sooooo funny! ! !
    Patti, that is hillarious! Sounds like your pooch was quite a character! :-)

    Wow, it's been great watching the progress. You must be so very excited at the prospect of getting all your stuff back in there and being able to actually enjoy your new space. Looks wonderful.

    Helen, it's a beige berber, and I have it in the rest of my basement as well as on the stairs and in the kid's bedrooms. The main floor and the master bedroom have hardwood. I've been doing all my sewing and scrapbooking in the dining room (hardwood) and I hate cleaning up the little bits of paper and thread on the wood floor. My dog walks through the dining room, or I do, and the little bits scatter everywhere, into the living room, kitchen, etc., and I end up having to vaccum the entire main floor. So this was the primary reason that I opted for carpet in the new sewing room - little bits will stick to the carpet and stay in one place! Also, I live in Canada, and it gets cold here in the winter, and the hardwood floors get cold. So carpet in the basement is a lot warmer. If I ever build another new house or renovate one, I'll put heating under the ceramic in the kitchen. OMG it gets cold in the winter!!!

    My poodle hid his Oreos in my sleeping bag until one night. I went to slip my feet in and felt something cold and wet. Sure enough, he'd hid his treat in there. When I screamed, he came up looked at me tilted his his head and proceeded to pull out the cookie. I slept in a northfacing bedroom (in the Midwest) so in the cold late 70's winters I'd sleep in my sleeping blanket (flannel lining) with quilts on top. My family treated the dog as well as me....he even had to have his tonsils out to cure his winter hacky cough.
