Apartment for Rent

I know, I know. I have been pretty lame about this home renovation blog. But I am proud to announce that I finally have some pictures to share. The house is still currently under construction so I will add pics as things are completed.
Our first completion, the basement apartment.
I don't want to come off as a beggar, but I've had five babies and no longer have any pride, so I will beg anyway...if any of you know of someone who needs a place to live send them our way. I would love, love, love to have a tenant referred by word of mouth. There's just something uber creepy about letting a complete stranger live in your basement. Rent includes all utilites (except phone) and satellite.
Drum roll please...

One of the two bedrooms before.

The two bedrooms after. All new paint, carpet, doors, lights and blinds.

The living room before.

The living room now. Again, new carpet, paint, light. Through the doorway is the laundry/mud room with new paint, light and laminate floors.

The kitchen nook before.

The kitchen nook now. Sorry, the box doesn't come with the apartment.

The kitchen before.

The kitchen now. All new cabinets, hardware and counters.

The bathroom before.

The bathroom now. Now paint, sinks, hardware, light, counters and cabinets.

If you know anyone who may be interested let us know. We are ready to rent the place out yesterday. Thanks.

Forgive me.

This is for the fam who have been asking me to post pics of the house. To you I plead forgiveness. I have been taking pics...plenty of them. But, somewhere between point A and point B my blessed camera cord has gone missing. I have checked high and low without success. I have tried inserting my media card into every computer orifice possible, but still no success. I would ask you to be patient, but most of you are coming up tomorrow and will see it so...
And to my friends who have been asking to see pics...just come over. Methinks it will be quicker. And, if you call me first, I'll make cookies, um-kay. Otherwise, just sit tight everyone and I will figure out a way to get some stinkin' pictures up. Although it goes against every principal I stand for, I may have to break down and buy a new cord (I hate purchasing something I know is somewhere under my nose and will most likely show up after I buy a replacement). But, perhaps having a back-up cord will not be such a bad thing.
