I keep wanting to post progress of our basement, but there are so many photos that it seems overwhelming. In the meantime, here is a good depiction of Jeff working hard as always. And then there's me...
Jeff working hard putting mud on the tape on the drywall.
Me! with my scarf and swimming goggles to keep the dust out of my eyes while I sanded the ceiling. It sure didn't keep the dust out of my nose, though!
And here is a shot of the same view...
...when we moved in-blue with weird cubby holes in the walls, all different levels, different depths, and totally not square. also, you might not be able to tell, but that piece that juts out on the right side, (it covers a pipe), is completely crooked, lower on one side, wavy, not straight or square either! Thanks, previous owner.
...after we tore down the crooked drywall AND illegal framing and put up new framing!
...and as it is now, re-drywalled and with some mud and tape on. There's a bedroom, now, and a closet and a bathroom! woohoo! Go Jeff!
