As always, photos are courtesy of the sellers' agent. These photos are all just screen grabs off the agent's slideshow when the house was listed, by the way. I've been trimming his excited sayings from below each picture, but I thought since the basement was a special circumstance, we'd maintain the agent's proclamations. I think you'll see why.
"Wide-open layout flexible for everything except standing!"
"Technically you don't need to stand up straight to play pool or watch TV! 6'3" Man Of The House, this is your chance for air hockey!"
"No really, Lady of the House, you definitely won't feel like you're working in a dungeon if you put your home office down here!"
"Okay men, shhhhhh, here's the deal. This entire 6-foot basement thing is actually an elaborate ruse to get you out of ever doing laundry. Brilliant, right?"
So that's the basement. It's big, but not very useful for much except storage. T's looking to buy a recumbent bike. I can do Jillian down there if I keep my jumps small. But in the meantime, it's working quite nicely as a staging ground for all of our stuff. Which we don't have to give away since we can store it. On the bright side.
