Evacuated 2011 - Day 49 - Aug 9, 2011

The basement is empty of stuff except for a few large, heavy items I cannot get out by myself. The third roll off dumpster will be filled by tonight. I have started removing the sheetrock in the basement. I started at the bottom of the stairs and am working to the right around the basement. The laundry room is done and today I will be moing into the bedroom and then into the large room I used as my shop. I am finding a lot of interesting things. Most of the basement appears to be insulated with one or two layers of 1/2 inch beadboard.... almost no "R" value in that. I have found water lines and darin pipes that I had no idea they were there nor do I know what they are for.. A lot of the wiring is old so it will be good to get the house rewired and up to today's standards.
We met with Darla from Muus Lumber last night and saw the first look at our new kitchen. So far it looks good. We will be getting cabinets made from 1/4 sawn oak to match our woodwork and have picked out a tentative counter top. Darla may have to come back to look at the soffit above cabinets as we want to install cabinets to the ceiling in that area.
I am also on the list for the Mormon Church to come and assist in sheetrock demo. They will call the day before they come. Any and all help is welcomed.
