kerfuffledI've already started on this but was too chicken to declare it until I could be sure I could do it
It’s kind of cheating I guess to declare it after I start; kind of like writing things on a to do list that you’ve already done but I need all the sense of accomplishment I can get right now.
OVERVIEW: The basement was a disgusting mess and had not been cleaned or even utilized for years. It had a lot of dead worms and insects all around the perimeter of the floor, a large part of the ceiling was destroyed from a minor bathroom flood, leaking pipes, and other bad water problems, there was a layer of dirt and other yuckiness on every surface and just junk and garbage everywhere. There was also a real stinky stench and cat urine randomly deposited throughout the area and it was really damp and humid.
I was going to not even do this, it was so overwhelming and disgusting that it just seemed impossible, and even when I started I still wanted to give up many times over the last few weeks. It wasn’t until I made a serious dent and saw that the basement could really be usable and nice again that I really committed.
That was a long intro and I’m too pooped to write of the progress I made so that’s for tomorrow’s entry. 18 months ago
The basement is about 1400 square feet. The section I MUST work on is about 120 square feet. When cleaning the main level, I put EVERYTHING I didn’t want anymore in that section of the basement with a desire to have a garage sale, sell it online or donate it by the end of summer. Gotta figure out a plan of action to get stuff sorted, priced and out the door. Suggestions welcome! 2 years ago
