Level Five | Home Tour


October 23, 2014 by Terry

Today we visit level 5 of our five level split home.  This level is the lowest level of our home.  While it is considered the basement, it is still a very bright area with high ceilings so once again, it doesn’t feel like it is that of a dark dreary basement.  The entire 5th level is the bedroom area for our oldest daughter who is 15.  It was originally intended to be another family room as it has a wood burning fireplace but we needed another bedroom and since she is the oldest it is nice she can have a large space to herself.  She also gets her own bathroom and dressing area.  The downside is that the furnace room is also down there.

We enter from the fourth level family room and go down a few steps.  On the right is a storage room / cold room.  We also meet up with the treadmill that no one uses :0)!  My eldest daughter does use it once in a while so I shouldn’t say it doesn’t get used at all…


(Sorry for the dark pictures)

Once at the bottom of the stairs, straight ahead is the large bathroom.  There is a vanity with sink and toilet only.  There are hookups ready for a shower and tub but we decided not to put one in yet … mostly because we just don’t have the time lately to do another large renovation.  She also has a nice little area for dressing, putting on her makeup and doing her hair in the bathroom…

DSCN3354I hung a lamp upside down so she could have a little more light for doing her hair and makeup, I just fed the cord through the drop ceiling and down the wall to the outlet.  It works for now until I can find an old chandelier to makeover.  Behind the screens are the two furnaces that heat the house as well as the hot water tank and sump pump.

Stepping out side the bathroom directly in front is a large very deep closet with a large amount of storage.  I won’t show you the inside as… well…. she’s a 15 year old girl and isn’t the neatest when it comes to her clothes closet! :0)


Directly to the right is her bedroom area..DSCN3344 DSCN3347 DSCN3351 DSCN3348

The other end of the room looks like this… It has the fireplace and enough room to actually have a little love seat and t.v. area.  We don’t have it set up as such right now as we are trying to keep the room minimal and spacious for potential buyers viewing our home.

And what is this I find as I go back upstairs? … Some one looking a little guilty as they sneak a nap on the sofa!  …


So that is the end of my home tour, I’m happy to be able to share with you a bit of our imperfectly perfect life :0)!

If you missed the first four levels you can find them here:

Level one      Level two    Level three    Level four

I’ve been working on my (click on it to see) smelly dresser and hope to share that makeover with you soon.

The other day I let my daughter drive us home after being away. I was absolutely exhausted from life in general. This was the view from my passenger window... a beautiful reminder to slow down and listen to God’s whispers... He’s got this. #listentothewhispers #godsgotthis #bestillandknow #thatstillsmallvoice #heismystrength

We know she will be successful in anything she does. What a gift she has been to our family! #proud #beautiful #strong #loveofmylife #blessed #loved #congratulations #graduation #bestfriendsforever #modelmaterial
Happy Monday friends! I know I haven’t posted anything for quite some time but as I sit here this evening I feel it’s time to share a bit more of what has been happening for the last few months. Most of you don’t know this but for the last 11 months I have been slowly learning the technical side of my family’s business. For the past 43 years my parents have invested their blood sweat and tears making our family business such a huge success. (@globefootwearltd ) I am privileged and honoured to be able to carry that on for them. 11 months ago I took a leap of faith and left everything I was comfortable with to come and carry on our family heritage. Our children were brave enough to leave their friends and their school in order to support their mom in keeping the family heritage alive. Today I am proud to say that while I still have much to learn, I am happy that we took that leap. It truly is an amazing journey and a hard (at times challenging) one at that… But with God’s grace and strength we will carry through for continued success! God is good! I’m still loving furniture makeovers and when I can, I still enjoy DIY and sharing what I make… But for now… I have to take a step back from that part of my life and focus on what is before me. I hope you will stay, and follow along in my journey. We have a new home where we are and are wanting to put our style mark on it… I know there are a few stencilling projects in our future ;-) I will share more with you soon. You can follow along on my business journey too at @globefootwearltd ❤️😊 #newlife #newfriends #newbusiness #newadventures #shoestore #familybusiness #heritage #myheritage #godisgood #strengh #godsgrace #globefootwearltd
