Hello everyone. Hope your week end is going great. Terry and I are heading through all the change ups to the new nest in record time. We have accomplished a lot together in just the short 3 weeks we have been in this home.
Terry has lived in my white cottage world with no complaints. So not only does he have a awesome set of tools and knows how to use them he also is so great at letting my decor shine through where ever we have lived. This home being no exception.
So when we bought this place and it had the finished basement we both knew this would make for a perfect Fireman Cave for Terry. So while the first level of this town home is white the lower level is fire department collections and all Terry.
So excited that he has his own space that reflects his years of being in the fire service along with his fire antiques. Mind you this space only has a third of his stuff!!! All the stuff from his office when he was fire chief is still all packed in many boxes hoping to find a new home soon.
The only before pics I have are the real estate pictures from when we bought this place. I had before pictures taken when we moved in but the disk I saved the pics too got cracked and the pictures were gone.
WARNING SINCE THIS IS A BASEMENT IT DOES GET A LOT OF NATURAL LIGHT BUT IT IS STILL A BASEMENT SO THE PICTURES MAY SEEM A LITTLE GRAINY. SORRY ABOUT THAT. THIS IS ONE TIME WHEN THE PICTURES DO NOT DO JUSTICE TO HOW NICE THIS SPACE REALLY IS.
Here We Go:
|Before Picture from realtor's pics.|
|Before picture of previous owners man cave.|
|Going down the steps to the Fireman Cave.|
|Terry put all his antique little collection of fire trucks on the shelf leading to the basement.|
|Terry has comfy reclining sofa's in his man cave to watch TV. He was able to create his hero, honor and courage wall again with his favorite poem called "who am I" and all his helmet shields the has worn throughout his career.|
|Terry has a full refrigerator, sink and ice tea maker along with a micro wave. So it is all good. Just need to get him a bed down here and he will never have to come up stairs lol!|
|Tucked back in the corner is Terry's office space.|
|Probably one of the most emotional items in his collection is a piece of the world trade center after 9ll.|
|While this is just a piece of the beautiful towers that were lost that day it is an important reminder of the lives lost. The innocent and the brave just doing their jobs.|
|Terry's 60 inch TV!!!!!|
|Much more handsome than Kurt Russell RIGHT!!!!|
There you have it. The Fireman Cave in our new nest. While my white world still exists upstairs Terry has his fire department decor in his man cave. So it is all good in the new place.
Thanks for coming by for a visit. Enjoy the rest of your week end.
|Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dad's out there. You are all hero's|
|Happy Father's Day to the love of my life. The best dad to our two daughters and the best grandpa to our granddaughter Abby and soon to be granddaughter Charlotte. You are our everyday hero and we love you.|
