The Basement, Post One

Finally, some progress on our basement renovation.  Here is an early picture before we excavated the floor, repositioned the sewer lines, upgraded all the piping, and sat around hoping for something to happen (an inspection appointment, a window put in, anything.  We’re easliy satisfied at this point, our expectations are so low.)

Well, the concrete floor has been poured!  Next step is the tiling, and from there, let’s get nutty, and consider the installation of walls and electrics and, oh, I don’t know, a bathroom!  The kitchen itself is weeks away, but we can now start moving forward again.

The work Simpson Contracting has done has been wonderful, really, and the delays are not their doing.  The masonry improvements are undetectable and the exposed brick elements will gleam.  Developments as they come, and no one will be happier to see them than me, but do try and revel along, taking heart for your own renovation projects which seem to never end (we’ve taken to refering to Pete Simpson as “Our Eldon”.)

  1. Um…correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought this blog was supposed to be stuff that you made. Did YOU make the basement? I guess you made it happen, maybe that counts…hmmm.
