|First, I will show you some pics of my woods as I walked down to the guesthouse at 6:00 this morning. |
|These pics will help to soften the blow of what is to come.|
I have to remind myself that this area was once dumpy city lots before I revived it.
|Progress on the bathroom! It still looks scary but the new plumbing is in and the floor will be cemented today.|
|My future kitchen. Haha...ye of little faith hang in there. You will be surprised! I've ordered all of my appliances but along with everything else in America, it is back-ordered until mid October.|
My very neat mason is back-filling the holes and pouring cement. The 'Holes from Hell' will be closed today.
And this very neat debris will be gone.
But, as with most old house projects, you always run into surprises and most are not good. I've had some water in one side of the basement on and off for a while. One of my basement steel doors has rusted to the point that I have to replace it.
After sweeping away a lot of pine needles and leaves, we found that some of the concrete pavers along one side of the house are tilted toward the house itself. This is never a good thing!
So, tomorrow this entire area will be ripped out and a new sidewalk will be poured. I hope you enjoyed the tour of my Halloween basement. I also hope that I will be able to show much more progress before Halloween is actually here.
