What a journey this has been ! From being confronted with mold and many other environmental “issues”, I purged 30 years “stuff”, and ended up remodeling my house organically to a “green” non-toxic dream home – all with filtered air and water, new plumbing, and electrical wiring (turned out I was living in an EMF nightmare with all the knob & tube original wiring.
We used all non toxic products (grout, glues, paint etc).
I’ve been wanting to remodel for 15 + years ( and have saved money) but the thought of clearing out the basement with 30 years stuff…
This next set of pics is of the old basement –
only place that mold turned out to be present.
We decided the basement :
A) Mother in law to be used for air B&B and social events
B) Knocked out wall between dark dreary office and storage room and build a long office with a bodacious suspended dance floor
THIS is demolition of basement (laundry, hiking area, old bedroom, sauna area that because new Air B & B
Old UPSTAIRS bedroom, Bathroom and kitchen
