My weekend workout with a bunch of studs

No, I'm not talking about hunky men (except for my husband, of course). These studs:

For those of you who were starting to think that my blog was turning into a cooking blog instead of a DIY blog (not that there's anything wrong with that), this is proof that we've had some real projects going on around here. This weekend, I hauled all these 2x4's down to our basement (while Luke was busy prepping/planning/measuring). At least I'm good for something! You can't tell from the picture above, but it was also a 100+ degree day. Just sayin'. So about an hour and a liter of sweat later, I finally had all 51 of them downstairs.

Yes folks, this means we are actually, seriously starting on our basement! There's been a bit of a lull since our concrete/plumbing work several weeks ago (hence all the recipes I've been posting), but things are picking up again. Hopefully I'll be able to show off a wall (or two) soon!

But in the meantime, don't be surprised if you see another recipe from me.  ;)

Hi Amanda,
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I haven't used a quesadilla maker, so I don't know if the chocolate quesadillas would work in it. They can be kinda messy!!
Your blog is great!. My husband and I have done many DIY projects over the years. I think it is sometimes very frustrating, but always awarding and fun!

Ooo ... fun fun project! We've been "finishing" our basement for like 4 years now - we took an extended break to completely remodel the first floor when we realized that we wanted to move plumbing / electric for the first floor and needed to get that out of the way before tackling the basement.

Don't forget to use a pressure treated bottom board if you're using those studs to build walls. Moisture leeching through the foundation will rot-out a non-pressure treated board!
