More DIY!

They (whoever "they" are) always say that renovation projects take time and money. We always seem to have more time than money; hence, DIY is a common refrain for us. For the big stuff, we call on our friends and relatives to lend us a hand.


On Monday, we checked another project off our list: the basement floor in the addition.


A few shots of all the action:

Pump setting up - I think the whole neighbourhood came out to watch.

Mixer - We were not about to do the mixing by hand, although it had been suggested!

The fun begins!

Using a screed to level the concrete

Progress!

Smoothing things out

Cleaning up the edges

Finishing up with a power trowel
We owe our thanks to a few tired (and we're guessing sore) workers who worked long and hard on our behalf. We're so happy to have completed this phase. You'll see more of this room someday when we make it cozy and comfortable for entertaining.
