Because I wasted my morning writing about why I was upset, I no longer have time to write about the bathroom remodel. It needs a drawing to explain what happened, so it will be ready to go next week.
But, here is the basement of La Casa del Azúcar.
|after the ceiling and carpet were removed.|
When I first toured this house, the basement had no electricity because of fairly severe water damage. There was a large hole in the ceiling--which was popcorn-covered acoustic tiles. Yep, double acoustic! The carpet was once fluffy and high-piled, but now flat and more colorful than initially created. It was big, though, for Sugar House standards.
|remember I said there was no electricity.|
|nope. didn't vacuum for this photo shoot. And there is Bowie's room!|
We put in canned lighting, ceiling, carpet, paint and added a new door under the stairs (another post for another day).
|My camera skills are seriously lacking.|
Also, see that entertainment bookcase thingamabob? That was in the storage room in this house and used for tools. I planned on stripping and sanding it, but decided I liked all of its "charm" and history even better. Especially the little marks of spray paint.
The carpet was bought in 30 minutes. I was running out of time and I went to the final carpet store that had the best deals. This carpet was soft and on sale. CHACHING! It was a dark gray in the store, which is just what I wanted.
They installed it a week later and it looked perilously like blue. Grayish blue, mind you, but BLUE. Oh well. Learn not to buy flooring in a hurry. Bring it to wherever it will be installed and THEN make a decision. It's still pretty great.
Want to come watch a movie and snuggle with Bowie?
