Did I mention, cleaning and painting? We are still cleaning and painting. Now its mostly painting. New carpet is coming today. The carpet in the basement was super nasty. It was put down in 1997. I found a date stamp. The pad is a standard foam... ...on bare concrete. So it has soaked up moisture in the past and transferred it to the carpet.
Lots of nasty stains. I would have taken and posted pics but did want to make anyone physically ill.
Once the carpet is down, All I have left is to replace the outlets and switch along with covers and it will look better. I will post pics of it when I'm done.
