After all votes were tallied from our poll on Friday asking you to tell us what to work on this weekend, the task of cleaning the disaster that is our basement won out. Lots of good justifications for why we should do this, and I can't say we disagree.

Here's a quick video I took when I heard bangs, crashes and general commotion coming from the basement. Is this the sound of progress? You be the judge.

I hope we're able to say we have a clean basement, but I'm not holding my breath. What do you think our odds are?

Hope your Sunday is a productive and enjoyable one thus far.

cool copper gutter/flashing...
Thanks! And wouldn't you know it, it's about to come in handy! I'm going to have to give Alex props for saving this one.

I'm voting that Alex will/has cleaned a good portion of the basement. Looked like a huge cleanup to accomplish in one weekend.

Glad this cleanup was voluntary! Our main water line burst on us a couple of weeks ago right where it came through the stone wall of the basement. There's nothing like a good old fashioned flood to force a basement cleanup. We spent the past couple of weekends drying out. Good thing most of our stuff was still up on blocks from our Hurricane Irene preparations!
Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about your flood. :-(

No before and after pictures?
There will be...when we get to the after...or even closer to "progress." :-)
