Our teenage son’s room is coming together

Now that we are getting settled into our new house, I have the very beginnings of some before and now pictures to share with you. Today I'm going to finally share our son's room which you got a glimpse of yesterday in our video walk through. Our son is 13 now (14 in January!

Well, too bad, I'm telling you anyway. :) Besides deciding to start a rigorous running program (I'm serious, don't laugh!) Ben and I spent the last few days flip-flopping the office and the guest room. For a point of reference, here's our floor plan with each room marked.
