Looks like the drywallers made significant progress today. Check it out!
Day 4 of the basement project brings a few good things to the table: recessed lighting and switches! Other than that, a the rest of the insulation is in place and the last storage closet was built (where the washer and dryer used to be).
Quite a bit more progress from the contractors on Friday and Saturday. All of the framing is up and insulation is about halfway complete. It looks like the majority of the electrical work is complete as well. I’m guessing they’ll start the drywalling on Monday. More pics and progress to come!
I know it’s only been a day, but the contractors have made awesome progress with the demolition. As you can see, the wall paneling has been ripped out, the drop ceiling is gone, and some of the electrical work has been gutted out. I can kinda start to see what it will look like after only one day.
Here are some pictures of the basement as it stands today. The renovation begins tomorrow and will last a few weeks. I will post pictures as I see progress; I am really excited!!

I’ll try to do this on a weekly basis. Here are my must read news stories for the week!
Digg has one of the most cleaver and original “Down for maintenance” pages that I’ve seen in quite some time.
I just spent the last 20 minutes organizing my bookmarks–for good this time. I just discovered Xmarks, a tool that synchronizes your bookmarks for use anywhere (not just one computer anymore). I know it has been out for a long time, but I really think it is worth nothing once again here.
Spend some time and organize your bookmarks. Like a filing cabinet, they can get out of hand very quickly if left untouched. After you are done, sign up for an Xmarks account, synchronize your bookmarks, download the corresponding plugin for your browser, and you’re on your way.
