The only way to get into the basement is by first putting a stepladder down inside, open it so it's safe to stand on, then go through the narrow opening. Opening the ladder requires a person to lay on the floor while holding the ladder to open it. A tricky move if you think about it. What if a person looses grip on the ladder and it falls to the basement floor?
There is even a concrete floor down there. Oh how I wish I could afford to have a stairway made to this ideal storage place! That one red brick in the wall has me very curious. Why would someone paint one single brick a bright red color? Could there be a treasure behind it?
This is the new vent from the new duct line. It's made to split the air flow so it goes toward each bedroom on the sides.
This is the new dryer vent system. You can't see it but there is a new closeable vent in the wall too. It closes when the dryer is not being used.
I'm not moving the dryer to take a picture. It would be impossible for me to do alone and I'm not calling a neighbor just for a picture.
I left a message with my home owner insurance company about the loss of all my foods. Evidently they are either flooded with calls or they haven't gotten up and running again. If I don't hear from them in a couple of days I will call again.
I've got the next quilt stabelized and working on the designs. I hope to get most of it finished today or tomorrow. It's actually due tomorrow so it is possible I can finish it on time.
The baby is finally back at day care. I'm sure she is happy to see her playmates again.
I best get back into the studio and get more work finished. Breaktime is over.
