The Shelves

There is a nook-shaped room in the basement. It is too small to be much of a bedroom - though it'd be a cute nursery. We, however, have more need for book storage, than baby paraphernalia storage. In addition to the shape, this room has odd ledges and a low ceiling along one edge of the room. Michael decided to build a bookshelf the width of the one wall, just the right size to fit under the ledge. The other shelves are full and were too tall, anyway.

We need the shelves to finish unpacking this room. I downsized our books to 3 shelves. I kept 4 bookshelves, but Michal has an office which migrated to our home when he retired. It will be nice to have the shelves up so we can finish the room. It's another project I'm trying to finish before it gets nice enough to garden and build outside.

Michael thought he may have to build the shelves in the room. He made some alterations and he and Jamin worked on it in the garage - much nicer for new babies trying to nap. CoRielle's room is down there. There was always going to be a day when the noise and shelf would have to move into the basement. 

They took over the common area - which is pretty much CoRielle's living room and kitchen area. 

They cleared boxes out of the study, moved the shelf into the study, and brought the boxes back. 

Stacia and I put furniture back in place, swept and mopped. The guys worked on last touches. 

The shelves are in place and nearly all assembled. We'll have to get the room unpacked in the near future.
