Well, it’s getting there…slowly but surely. We have a new gas fireplace in the basement and it is working beautifully. Next up will be lights and other electrical, then some drywall and painting, a cool new facade for the fireplace, a mantle, and then some carpet. Somewhere in there we want to replace the windows, but we’ll need to wait until we can save up the money for that. I’m hoping to have a nice, cool basement to use when it starts getting hot around here next summer!
Here is the current state of our basement. I like to call Rick “Tim ‘The Tool Man’ Taylor”…you know from that show, Home Improvement? Tim Taylor had every tool known to man…and so does Rick. What you see pictured here is only a very very small percentage of it. I’m glad he’s so super handy!
