Last year on January 1st I kicked a hole through the basement wall where the bar would eventually go.
This year we have similar distruction, as we are currently living with the subfloor exposed and dust everywhere in the master bedroom.
People keep telling me I’m going to get sick of doing projects but I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
Max started by ripping out the carpet, which was quite the feat because we decided not to clear the room for this project. We couldn’t afford to lose our bedroom for as long as this will take and so we’re just living with it.
The underside of the carpet was horrifying and I’m really glad to have all the carpet we planned to remove finally gone. The basement is still carpeted but it is a low pile and much newer and less trafficked so it will stay that way.
Right now we’re living with the subfloor but it already feels much better.
With the carpet done, it was time to scrape the ceiling. I put drop cloths over everything and did this the same way I did in the spare room. I figured now is the time to do it since there is no floor and I got it scraped and mudded while Max was away for work for two days.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Happy New Year!
