As some of my IRL friends know, we experienced some flooding in our basement this last year. It was an unseasonably wet spring, summer, and fall in our area. Local rivers escaped their banks, whole houses were under water, and in neighboring states some lost their lives.
We had mold in the carpets and the drywall. All the carpets came out and the affected drywall was eventually replaced. I’m so thankful to not have the scary mold monster in my house anymore.
This thought really excites me! But there’s just one problem. I am not sure how I want our basement to look. I don’t know what sort of aestetic to go with. I can’t even decide on a paint color.
Well I guess I better get to figuring this out. We have been without our basement for a long time! Not just because of the flooding, but because we had people staying with us before then.
I’m ready to spread out some!
I’m ready to have living space on the same floor as our laundry.
I’m ready to get the kids’ toys back downstairs!
Join me on this journey as we put our basement back together, and reclaim our house!
