No Asbestos!

As you all know, our goal is to refinish our basement before the baby is born. One major potential obstacle that was standing in our way was that most basements completed before 1970 have asbestos in the ceiling tiles. If that was the case with our basement that would cause the budget to SKYROCKET, due to bringing in a professional asbestos remover. We sent out samples for testing and today we received the great news... NO ASBESTOS! That means that now Matt can begin the demo of tearing down the old tiles without any worries! Just in case you haven't seen it yet, here is a picture of our BEAUTIFUL basement!

Don't you just LOVE the cabinets with fake glass, the faux wood paneling, the faux brick wall, the orange fabric wall, the broken 12x12 linoleum tiles, the stained yellowing ceiling? If you look really close on the right side of the orange fabric wall you will see a beautiful outdoor lantern sconce. You also can't see phone and cable lines, strung through the room, attached to the walls. We've got a lot on our plate, but we're ready to get rolling on this room!
