I took these photos last winter. I think I became immune to the cluttered, hoarding chaos and focused on our goal and vision for turning the house and property into a lovely home with a pretty backyard.
And I didn’t walk downstairs to the ground/garage level for months. I took this photo after boxes stacked on the stairs, and all the way to the ceiling, were removed. The 1960’s carpeting was filthy. At the end of the hall, the entrance to the basement was nearly blocked. The entrance to the garage was blocked and I couldn’t even figure out what was to the right–which is now the mudroom. The bunker addition entrance was off the mudroom and that was beyond scary.
