making progress

slowly but surely, this basement project has been coming along (thanks to nate). I am no big help right now. I'll do the painting and laying the floor, but as far as building walls and wiring: I don't have a clue and I'm thankful my husband can do it all.
So, what have we done so far?? Well as you can see from the first post about the basement we now have:

  • one open room instead of 2 small rooms
  • fixed the cracks, rotten post, and sealed the floor
  • replaced moldy sheetrock
  • a closet
  • some new lights (it looks like they're not quite finished)
And soon we'll be working on the walls: mudding, texturing, painting. Then it's onto the floor. I think we'll be installing some type of vinyl and then will have area rugs on top of that.
I'm hoping to get most of this finished up before I start school on the 26th. How much do you want to bet that it won't be??
