The walls are finally completely done in the basement! They have sheetrock, have been spackled and are sanded. The basement is a bit dusty, but the relief of not having to do it ourselves has been such a weight lifted off us. Now we just have to get my dad to help us with some incidentals, Chris has to get the drop ceiling up and I have to get the electrician back for the finishing touches. The guy is coming to measure for the rug tomorrow and then I am no longer tethered to the house. After the inspections, painting and carrying everything back down, we can move forward with getting the house ready for the new addition.
