Our Remodeled Basement

After two days of HARD work by Papa Bear, with some help from our neighbors, this is what our basement now looks like.

It wasn't the greatest before the rains, but it was at least pretty comfortable, with carpet on the floor and a couple of couches.

There's our carpeting, waiting to be picked up and hauled away. I can't complain too much, since our neighbors had just put in brand-new carpeting in their basement a few weeks ago. Their carpeting is now sitting at the curb, too. Ouch. No, insurance doesn't cover replacement. Double ouch.

This is our Wii game reclamation project. They got wet, so I pulled them out, dried them off, opened up the covers to dry, and tossed the instruction booklets into the oven to dehydrate.

They are now very interesting cardboard, completely useless as reading material. Oh, well. It could have been much worse, so I'm not grumbling. Much.


  1. Yikes. Did not realize it was that bad. Call us if you need help.

  2. I'm sorry it's been such a disaster. But as you said, at least it's not worse. :/ The studio ended up with some minor flooding, too- luckily nothing near as bad as your basement! A shop-vac and a dehumidifier have gone a long, long way to fixing things up.
