Just to remind you, this is what our basement looks like

Mr. Baby Bear Hugs and I both had different ideas of how we were going to do this. We decided that the first step was to open up the wall so we could see what was inside and if there were any studs under the landing (the landing is right where the ceiling pitches). You can see under the stairs since they are only slats, so we knew that there was an empty space there, but we could not see anything in detail. We held the side of the house that we wanted to put on the Left side first and made sure that we knew it would be below the landing.

Then we cleaned up so that we could see what Baby Bear thought about it (you can see our dog enjoying it too). We will add more things as we go to make it a posh hideaway!
