Well the wife tried to kill me, but I agreed, so it's my fault.
On the 4th of July, the wife ask if I could have the basement bath in better shape for Comets 16th birthday party. Sure I say, we need a toilet in the basement anyways. Been putting that one off for a while.
Monday, it's off to the races. (Now this wasn't all done Monday.) I rent a jackhammer, blow out the floor. Tap into the sewer line. Fix the floor. Then lay a new floor. Hmm, need a sink, build a cabinet and top. Get a used sink, cleaned it up and installed. Need lights and electric. Rebuild an old light. Run the electric. Run the water. Well might as well do some more walls and such. I ended up framing out about 1/2 the basement. I had done what I needed done for the party, I have a pick up list to finish. Few pieces of trim and what not.
We have had 8 1/2" of rain since last Monday (7-12). The walnut I had cut down and was going to be used for logs, is GONE. Floated off to somewhere. Got hit by lightning last Thursday and again Sunday. Sunday's took a toll on TV's and computers. Lost 2 tv's, Wii, computer, printer, external harddrive and who knows what else I haven't found. TV's are at repair shop, per insurance. I explained to the guy, I don't want them back. Don't like having stuff that was whacked. We will see how that goes.
All in all, it was fun and aggravating at the same time. The lightning, is not a big deal, headache yes, but material things were damaged and can be replaced.
