We’re down to the finishing touches on our basement renovation following the July 11 flood. I won’t be tripping over as much stuff once those finishing touches are done. Our carpet is finally installed in the rec room as is most of the tile in the laundry room. We’re short about 15 tiles according to the installer. The replacement furniture from IKEA was delivered yesterday – now to assemble all 900+ pounds of it. My brother helped build the furniture for the rec room, and he’s returning tonight to finish that and build the shelving for the laundry room. Our new couch arrived yesterday as well. Once the furniture is assembled, the toys move downstairs, as do the contents of the spare bedroom which has been acting as a storage room since the flood. Hopefully the bulk of the work will be done before our Discovery Toys party on Saturday afternoon.
