I spent much of the weekend cleaning the “utility room,” the biggest room of our house. I’m still sore from all the bending and scraping. There was a lot of sheetrock mud on the floor, and a few magazine pages which had adhered to the concrete during the flood.


I think I still need to scrub the baseboards and chainwall. Then I need to caulk up some gaps and it should be ready for paint. Once it’s painted, then we’ll install a washer and dryer.

I figure this room will be the first room to be finished in our post-flood renovation. It’s my hope to have this room done by the end of October, and to have the whole basement done by the end of the year.

Xy doesn’t think I can do it.

    Be sure to put that water heater on a stand if you plan on storing any gas cans down there!
