This week, we had the basement dry walled from head to toe. That means that we got rid of the 1970’s style fake wood dark paneling and the groovy wallpaper covering the staircase. I will admit that covering over the wallpaper was not an easy decision, as that was some of the swingin’est, grooviest wallpaper I’ve ever set eyes on. However, from a purely practical perspective, it was the right thing to do. From an emotional perspective, I never would have touched the stairwell and the wallpaper would have stayed.
In addition to drywalling the basement, we are going to get new carpeting to replace the funky, dirty old carpet that is currently there.
So more pictures are to come when the basement is more complete.
