5 day basement overhaul

During our last remodel project, the kitchen, I had torn apart our basement. We knew we needed new carpet and that the walls would need fresh paint. Well a out of state job opportunity popped up for me that was too good to pass up on. This meant I had less than a week to wrap up everything I had going on in the house. In a 5 day span I was able to completely finish off our basement (approx 765 sq feet). I removed baseboards, spackled holes, sanded, primed, painted and did the finish work within 5 days time. On the 5th day we had the carpet professionally installed and finished installing the freshly painted doors, reassembled the new closet layouts and were ready to list our home. Considering the short time frame, I don't think I could have done it without all my Ryobi tools. Unfortunately I didn't stop and take any in progress pictures or even before pictures for that matter. So these pictures are our listing photos when we bought the house about 3 years ago and our new listing pictures from a couple days ago.

  • So fresh and so clean! Those 5 days are going to make a big difference to potential buyers. It really looks great. Congrats on the new job! We hope it means lots of new home projects for us to enjoy.
