In other news - the basement reno is still going on. What started out as replacing the old knob and tube wiring a couple of years ok has turned into a full blown remodel of my now oldest son's place of residence. Since we gutted all the walls and ceiling anyway we decided to change the whole layout downstairs and add a shower to the old two piece bathroom. We moved the old duct work from the center of the room to the side, added a walk in and linen closet, expanded the laundry room and are now working on a new staircase. Most of the work is being done by us but time is definitely a factor and to be honest renovations are not as easy as they used to be. Maybe it's because we're older but the energy and sense of urgency is just not the same as it was ten years ago! Of course living with one toilet for almost a year with 5 people in this house was next to impossible so we finally got that put in!
