We’re deep in the post-move ennui, where the work yet to be completed still exists but our bodies make stern fist-shaking threats whenever our minds bring it up. Fortunately, Elizabeth forges on without us. Here, look at the laundry room she built:
I don’t know if I have stressed the “Eli is awesome” part of these posts enough, so I hope the pictures speak for themselves.
The room still isn’t completely finished, as I need to put up some shelves and a laundry table, and Brown needs to frame and install the folding doors. And, as we’re still not sure what we’re going to do with this section of the basement, we didn’t add color to the walls.
Short-term plans (in the next two years) are to replace the (quite elderly) water heater, raise the new heater on a separate wood platform, and put some of those cheap press-n-place laminate tiles on the floor. Long-term plans (five or more years down the road) are to move the water heater, washer, and dryer to a more sensible location, then stock the room with a pinball game and an old Joust Ms. Pac-Man* arcade console.
