Happy New Year everyone. I figure I've already wasted about 10 hours of the New Year so I better get started on my first house project. What better way to start the new year than to dig up portions of the basement slab and have new plumbing and sewer backup mitigation measures put into place?
We have dealt with flooding for two consecutive years now and it is time to do something about it. The down-side is that this will cost an insane amount of money and will have no impact on the overall look of the Tiny Bungalow. Yeah, we won't have sewage in the basement anymore but I can think of about a hundred other places in the house where this kind of investment will make a dramatic improvement.
The project starts with cleaning out the basement and making way for the work. After the last project which, by the way, is not complete, I threw all of my supplies in the basement to make the upstairs presentable for guests. Since before Thanksgiving, there has been little change. I need to clean it up.
