The contractors came this morning to begin the basement remodel. We finished clearing it yesterday, just in the nick of time. I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. And they promise to be done in less than two weeks. Yipee!
I don't usually air my dirty laundry like this, but *yikes*...I want to document where we started. I talk about how the mess began here. Here are two photos that show where we started from.
Filled to the brim and ready for pick up. It's been fun putting stuff out to the trash and seeing how quickly it gets picked up for re-use. Metal bed frames, old gutters, pipes and weights were hot items not lasting more than an hour before getting snapped up. Until after reading Shona's experiences, I didn't believe it could happen, but it does.
I'm fighting dumpers remorse hoping someone claims this dresser.
Seeing Blair's made me think of the possibilies of giving it a new life...but, no...no! I must resist!
I'm most excited about
more than one electrical socket (no more swapping out freezer/washer/dryer/dehumidifier etc)
lights with switches (no more pull chains)
and block windows to replace these horrors
Two weeks friends...and I'll be showing off my new space.
