Yesterday morning, I left the house at 4am to work a trip to Jamaica. While I was away, John sanded and primed the east wall with Kilz 123.
The square opening to the right is the fireplace cleanout. The square opening on the upper left hand side is where the basement window will be installed. The gas pipe and duct opening for the Maytag gas dryer is the center of the photo. The Maytag washing machine will be to the left of the dryer, and to the left of the washer, will be the utility sink.
When I returned home at 8pm, I walked downstairs and saw the freshly primed wall with one coat; John had started rolling the second coat.
The wall is really bright and cheerful. Since the lighting isn’t installed in the basement yet, the three work lamps cast huge shadows and the photo doesn’t do justice to the clean, bright white wall.
John finished the second primer coat last night. This morning the Maytag washing machine and dryer were hooked up; I’m ecstatic to have both appliances. Since we sold our house in NJ almost three years ago, I have lived with the inconvenience of not having a washer and dryer. Another lesson learned; I’ll never take for granted the luxury of having both appliances at my disposal.
