Betty to Ashley:  did you know that a basement is under your house and a cellar is in your yard with its own door?
Ashley:  well your Poppy and B are working on a wine cellar in their house
Betty: and they are just wrong

 so...I guess we will now refer to this as 
and we made lots of progress over the weekend

I must admit for such a tiny space it will have great impact

scary scary scary

the first thing one needs to begin is...
a focal point

the right product for the job

good bones are imperative 

plan ahead for behind the scenes...use your imagination to take advantage of 
the talent before you!

the round ceiling made use of old pallets 
(don't you love to re-purpose?!)

Think man think!

Cheer on man...cheer on!

measure twice cut once!

plan on a few cattywompers in an old home

test the light before you remove the ladder

yes...cute carpenter man can even sew and weld
I asked him

and he has a bit of a feel for decorating

just a few little details left after
Cute Carpenter Man and his Trusty Helper
get done with their day time jobs

my part?  to win the contest!!!

and dust the wine bottles

I LOVE it!! It really looks fabulous Gina. Maybe there is hope for ugly basements. Now you have me thinking. :)

Gina like a total WOW! I love the stacked stone. Oh how delightful this will be and the enjoyment it will give. Lucky girl.

Perfection. Wonder what Princess Betty will call it now? Her dungeon? She has the turret already!
