Basement Progress: Up, Up and Away
As we mentioned yesterday, the first item on our to do list for the “finished” portion of the basement was to get rid of the carpet. Like the rest of the carpet in the house, it was old and smelly. Now, I have to say, removing basement carpet is a delight in comparison to the carpets upstairs – no tack strips, no staples, no sore back. In case you don’t remember, here is a picture of what the basement looked like before.
And here it is during…
And a few after shots…
It’s insane how happy bare concrete makes me. It’s like a blank canvas. I should mention though that it has since become a designated dumping ground for all of the stuff we have put off unpacking haven’t had a chance to unpack yet. And just because the pictures I have posted over the past few days haven’t exactly been the prettiest, I thought I would include one of a very cute, yet slightly confused looking puppy.
And in case you’re wondering, yes we will be removing the carpet from the staircase as well – just as soon as we figure out a way to add more hours to the day.
That’s what we’ve been up to. What’s keeping you busy lately?
