A room takes shape
Kevin has been working his ass off on the basement bathroom, trying to get it as close to “finished” as possible before the wall-anchor guys show up to shore up the basement and make sure our house doesn’t collapse into a crater in the earth. Isn’t that nice of him?
In order to install the shower stall we chose, he’s going to have to move the floor drain a little, which entailed busting up a square of foundation that hasn’t been touched in about 60 years. First, he tried using some sort of diamond-edged saw blade. Then he tried using a hammer and chisel. THEN, he Hulked out and just hammered away at the concrete like John Henry and that’s what did the job. Look at that virgin soil! I should snag some for the garden this year.
I can’t wait until the basement is done and we can get to work getting Galaga and Space Invaders cleaned up and up and running again. It was supposed to be just a small basement renovation, but it seemed to take an eternity to finish.
Can I tell you how happy I’ll be to get a rebate check from our electric utility for all the insulation we’re buying up for the basement?
Hey, guess what! It’s hard to take pictures inside a tiny room. It’s turning into a legitimate bathroom, though! Yay!
