Day 1 of the Reno
So the basement renovation has begun…finally. After running around picking up supplies on Monday, the crew came to our house today to finally start by ripping up the floor and framing out the back wall of the family room-to-be. We now have a hole in our basement and dust everywhere including upstairs. Faith enjoyed walking and dragging her feet as she left footprints in the dust.
Why a hole? Because we need to move the existing rough-in pipes a few feet over for the new bathroom.
Check out the pics below. Here are descriptions in order: Picture 1, 6 & 7: hole in the floor to move the bathroom pipes. Picture 2, 3 & 5: the back wall framing. Picture 4: a view of where the bathroom is going to be. Look pretty messy, I know.
More tomorrow. I hope you will enjoy my documenting of this reno. They tell us that they think they can finish the reno in 4 weeks. Here’s hoping.
