    Lately, I've been H-talking @ breakfast, lunch (on weekends) and dinner and just before bed.

    Sometimes, not at dinner.

    I've just got a HUGE mess here to clean up.

    I mentioned here before that we're tying into municipal sewage.

    Well, that's done. Pipes tied in, basement floor cut, new lines run and roughed in for a bathroom in the basement. I paid for that work to be done. It was just easier.

    Now, to save a few bucks, we hauled all of the concrete out (and filled a dumpster with other crap that's been laying around) mixed and poured 24 - 80# bags of concrete in the basement.

    Now, I've got to finish cleaning the loose paint off of the walls and floor, prime and seal them, frame out, wire, plumb and finish a bathroom in the basement. We're also adding a walk-in closet for food storage because it will be better organized than what we currently have.

    After that, I want to build a rec room for the boys down there so that they've got a place to hang with their buddies and, once they're grown up and moved on, it turns into Dad's Cave.

    Once THAT is finished, then I'm planning to insulate the garage. That's going to be a MAJOR undertaking because the walls are already festooned with all of my junk.

    Sometime during all of that, Momma wants a new kitchen floor, paint in most of the upstairs rooms, a new tile backsplash in the kitchen, a new roof....
    80# of sackcrete mix and pour sound NO fun

    Yep. 2 at a time, all morning long.

    Brother-in-law is a construction foreman, so he's been over offering a bit of advice and some assistance.
