Day off today, so the basement got tackled.
The young miss wants a somewhat larger bedroom. My wife was less enthusiastic about this in 2008 when we moved in. The basement was a better place to house the rabbits away from the “predators.” But the last of our Missouri bunnies died last year. Last week my wife and I got the room cleaned out.
Today, the metal and wood pieces to hold down the old carpet had to go.
As for turning this into a bedroom, I’m more of a skeptic than I was when I was open to the idea all those years ago. Granted, I closed the heating vent a long time ago and the room was chillier than it could be. Cold hands, gripping tools: not a recipe for comfort.
