Definitely fall is in the air.
Cool breeze, shorter days and chilly mornings/evenings.
I honestly have only decorated a few things around the house...
I am mainly a Christmas decorator.
I also have been working on our garage project.
But Summer has ended and I am not done.
I knew I wouldn't.
But we made progress.
wood ceiling exposed.
I like it.
I makes the room feel more cozy.
All walls but one have been treated with drylock.
There were actually some small holes and cracks that I patched with hydraulic cement a few days before the drylock went up.
Extra Outlets and extra lights have been wired.
Vents have been cut and a gas heater has been installed to keep this room and the basement warmer during the winter months.
The metal doors have been taken down this past weekend (finally), and a neighbor was able to pick them up and reuse them.
Which is awesome.
I am all about reusing and keeping stuff out of the landfill.
Next thing to do will be to install the new lights.
There will be 4 of this in the almost 500sq ft room.
I am considering building "dummie" walls to separate the laundry and storage area.
I don't want to enclose the area with drywall, since the water heater is right next to our washer and dryer.
We'll never know when we'll need to replace it of fix it, and I want to make sure we can easily move stuff out of the way.
Right now, I put up dropcloth curtains.
I just needed some visual enclosure.
As far as the floor,
I have the feeling the floor will have to wait for spring.
And I am ok with that.
Right now I have more important things to take care of.
By doing most of the work ourselves, we have been able to keep the cost down to very little.
Some paint and material...and a lot of work.
