TV Room, Den, Rec Room....

It doesn't matter what people are calling them these days... I want one!

The remodelling is going great over here at the Hurren home. Most of the major stuff is done and I've only got a few painting and other projects left on the inside. (The outside? Well that's a whole other story!)

One of the big projects I'm mulling over in my head is the basement Rec/T.V./Den room. My plan is that it will serve multi-purposes. Remember the pirate ship fort from our last place? We want to do something similar here, some kind of an indoor fort/playground. That will take up about a third of the basement space but we also want to make some space down there for entertaining guests and make it a fun 'hang-out' space for the boys and their friends. We've already moved a pellet stove into the room in one corner and I've got hopes of somehow building some kind of a frame with mantle around it to make it a little more presentable. We also want to put a t.v. in the space somewhere and this is where I'm torn. We've though about building a sort of half wall to separate the t.v. space from the play space and I think this could work out really great. It would give us the option of putting the tv into the built-in or using some sort of a corner tv stand and then positioning the couches and chairs around that area to make it a little more cozy. I would love to add a fun and funky rug, a large and chunky coffee table, some kind of a sofa table and of course some unique and colorful art and other accessories. Here are a few pictures of some inspiration I've seen around.

So what do you think? Any advice? What do you love or hate about your Rec/T.V./Den space? What would you add if you could? What do you find useless in your space? Advice is certainly welcomed!!!

Rosewood's Diary

I wanted to share a video with you today. It's a local band called Rosewood's Diary and they're spectacular! I got the chance to watch them live a little over a year ago and I am just liking them more and more.


New Photos

I've posted some new images to my photo blog.

Here's a little sample...

Check out the rest over here.

I Am Iron Man

My sister posted a few days ago about her son Connor who likes to set his school clothes out the night before to make sure things are ready for the next day. You can read about that here.

Turns out I have a little boy that feels the same way as Connor.

Well, sort of.

I really like the accessories.

And I love his imagination.


The boys and I had tons of fun in Vancouver last weekend. We went down for the Langley LDS Temple Open House. You can read more about that here.

While in Vancouver we visited Stanley Park, got much needed haircuts, threw rocks in the water, swam, swam, swam, and swam some more, rode the Sky Train, rode the Sea Bus, watched some whales and lots and lots of other fun things.

Good times!

Langley, B.C. Temple

Last weekend I took the boys down to Langley to visit the new LDS temple that just opened. It was simply beautiful!

The temple will be open for the public to walk through and view until April 24th. If you live in the Lower Mainland area I would highly recommend visiting the temple.

It's a great chance to get a feel of what us 'Mormons' are all about. Feel free to ask questions too!

I promise you won't regret it!
