We are in the beginning process of planning to finish our basement. Our house isn't that big and our children and their friends are getting bigger and more destructive, so they need a place to go that is far away from me.
We need to put in at least one egress window, for light and also so we can count one room as a bedroom eventually. I am almost certain I have seen attractive egress windows while on the Parade of Homes tours, but each of the examples I have seen from contractors is very depressing.
Something that looks like this and makes me want to cry. The search continues.
