So far the basement reno has been dirty
Did I say dirty ?
I meant really, stinking, filthy, nasty dirty.
In 2017 when the hurricane came through, the basement flooded. The water was at least 18″ deep.
Since then, we have had gutters installed, created a water flow pattern and some more technical things I don’t know the names of.
The last step in protecting the room from water was to dig a trench all the way to the bottom of the block wall
We crawled through this door
Shimmied under the house
We dug a trench
4 feet deep
32 feet long
This friend……….a real friend to do this kind of work, showed up with her work clothes.
The next step was to seal the block.
This step included tar and some sticky plastic wall paper stuff
It was the worst
We threw our clothes and our shoes in the trash.
Steve threw his clothes and shoes away numerous times due to the tar situation.
Again……it was awful
One more Saturday filling up the trench is on the calendar and then the PRETTY BEGINS!!!
Starting yesterday, I spent the entire glorious day in paint clothes.
I have been lacking in using my creative juices due to the tar situation.
These cabinets, which will be included in the pretty part of the Reno started getting their face lift
They might be blue 💙💙💙
I’ll be sharing so much more very soon
