I spent most of yesterday cleaning the basement, just so I can get to it to do more work. Basements just seem to be junk collection havens, I couldn't believe all the stuff that ends up down there. It looks like we need to make another trip to the dump, our garage is almost full of wood that is mostly salvaged from the house, or scrap lumber from the retaining wall forms. I try to salvage as much material as I can, I just don't like waste, and some of the old wood is really nice. At least I can get to where I can tear out the parts of the basement slab that are settled and cracked, or where we need to do plumbing. I cleaned up the work bench as well, you can see the surface again. I need to learn how to clean as I go, I'm sure it would make me work faster as well. Anyways, it feels really cathartic to have a cleaner basement to work in.
