Ah there is nothing like coming home to a flooded basement…I am sure many of you experienced this also. Well our basement has always been a dump. When we moved in our house a couple years ago we renovated everything on the top two floors (just 1200sq ft) and lived in the 400 sq ft basement for 5 months with 4 dogs! Yes it was interesting to say the least…..after we moved up to the main house we did nothing but use the basement for storage and laundry.
Here are a few pics of the flood/water damage after James had been working on it for about 3 hours! Excuse the blurry pics 🙂
Our neighbor came over and help us wet vac a bunch of the water, move furniture upstairs and then James cut the carpet piece by piece and rolled it up so we could get rid of it….ugh. So this was Thursday night. Today we decided (my husband decided) we would knock this wall down in the basement we keep saying we are going to get rid of…ah a handy husband is really nice to have! Here is James tearing down the wall…go baby go!
And this is what it looks like after a day of hard labor by my husband ..I think I might even be able to paint a little down there now even though this is suppose to be the “man cave”.
Many thanks to my hubby…we will keep you updated as the progress of our basement renovation. Hope you all survived the weather.
