Eliminating wasted space.
About 3 hours later:
This is what hubby has done:
it was an awful mess here before, i had my books in totes and cardboard boxes- the boxes were up on shelves, but with so much flooding the boxes lost their stiffness and loosened. Though very few of my books actually got wet, the slow collapse of the boxes left things in a mess.
He's also applied DryLoc to the walls to see if we can keep the dampness down when we do have those soaking rains that have been happening much more frequently than i can remember.
He is under the impression that painting up to the granite foundation isn't a good idea. I don't have a clue myself.
All those black totes contain books. My books. I think the green ones have assorted aquarium odds and ends...
But he's got it all organized and most of the walls painted. He's doing more painting right now...i think.
