Four weeks later, the house is really moving along. I have had electrical and plumbing work done. The library in completed and the rooms are being painted.
The huge project was the asbestos removal in the basement. We had over 200 sq. feet on all the pipes. The company came out and even though I thought the job was complete, when the state came out to look at their work, the asbestos removal company had to come back to do a re-do of the job. Apparently, the first time they came out, it wasn't cleaned enough, now, the job is complete and I don't think the basement has ever looked so good for a partially dirt basement, built in 1730.
The white wrapping on the pipes is the asbestos.
Not only did I not know what asbestos was, a builder had to tell me. It was falling down too. A huge hazard.
Creepy!! We have the added bonus of lots of cobwebs!
