Our Friday night looked something like this.
The upside of schlepping 28 garbage bags of insulation up from the basement and out to the drive shed at 11:30 on a Friday night is that you don’t have to do it on Saturday. That means you have time to pull every nail, staple and screw out of the studs, rip up all of the carpet, load everything in to the truck and trailer and make it to the dump before it closes–with a half hour to spare.
Demo in the basement is pretty much done now. The next items on our to-do list include fixing up the electrical.
And beefing up the existing studs, which have been laid flat, leaving us only 1 1/2″ for insulation–not enough.
Our formerly finished basement is now very much unfinished, but I’m actually really happy to see the clean slate. And I feel like we’re approaching the point where we finally start to put it all back together.
What did you do on your weekend? Productivity is satisfying, but I do hope someone out there got to sit and relax a bit.
