WALLS ARE UP – DAY 7 & 8

In the future basement

In the future basement

A couple of days ago we climbed up and into our new basement. Well, within the walls of our new basement. We stood in the middle and looked around at what will be a main part of our home. It was a great feeling.

We were able to rough out where the basement rooms would be and figure out some measurements.

The basement bathroom layout was on the top of the to do list as the plumber came today to start doing the plumbing work for the basement. We fit in a quick trip to go tub shopping. And like mattress shopping, you really have to try getting in the tubs to try them out for size and comfort. What I thought would be a twenty minute stop ended up taking almost two hours but in the end we found the perfect tub for the space.

Today the site is bustling with machinery, plumbers, electricians and building inspectors. I do feel bad for everyone working outdoors in our sunken future basement in hot and humid 31 degree weather while I sit here typing in an air conditioned room. Quite a change from just a few months ago complaining about the 30 below weather.
