Phase 2 Begins

Menards delivered our building supplies and this is now the lovely state of affairs in our garage:

This past weekend was spent removing some old knob and tube wiring, drilling holes through some floor joists to run some new wiring, removing the old scary breaker box (but to keep for later cleaning and framing) ripping up scary leopard-print linoleum, laying down new plywood subfloor in the sections of closet that we expanded and insulating the formerly uninsulated closets.

Exciting purchases included a circular saw and an industrial-strength mop and bucket to attempt to tackle the filth accumulating on the floor upstairs. These pictures show a section of floor before and after the pass of the mop, as well as what the bucket of water looked like after I mopped about about a 4' x 10' section of hallway.

Wow. Just... wow. This is really shiny. I'm looking forward to the end result. (Admittedly, probably not as much as you are. ;)

Glad the move went okay! That has to be cramped, living downstairs...
