We accomplished a lot today

 

     Before I got over to the house, DH went over to lend R a hand while he removed the ice maker tap from a water pipe.  (Hey, Chuck one less thing to do!)  We figured we might as well take advantage of R’s plumbing skills when he offered. 

     Much to my surprise, when G and I did get there, the large six body capacity chest freezer and the little electric stove that were in basement were gone thanks to the neighbors.  DH and R had already left for home too. 

     The newer refrigerator that the in-laws had in the basement is what we’re putting upstairs to replace the old nasty one and it is now sitting by the basement door.  It will remain there until the painters are finished. 

     All the old linoleum on the basement floor is up and out thanks to the neighbor’s son.  He used an ice chopper to get under it and then tore it all into manageable pieces.  Two layers of the nasty stuff!  The cement floor underneath looks great and will go a long way towards selling the house.

     G and I hauled many boxes of glassware and other household items downstairs.  We hope to set up our sale with small items and tools in the basement and the furniture upstairs.  It looks as though the big sale will be possible in about two or three weeks.

  1. This is so exciting – it’s been a long long haul, and now ending landmarks are clearly in sight. Wonderful.

    I can’t wait for this to get done! 😀

  2. Some things seem like they have no end. Remodeling, moving, tail chasing. Hope all comes to a successful end!
