We were embarrassed by some of the stuff we found down there. You wouldn't believe the number of old cardboard boxes. I think I totaled 5 trips to the recycling center counting both projects. The real challenge was recycling as much as we could instead of giving into the easier temptation of just throwing it all in the dump. The one thing we couldn't recycle was all the wood scraps from the moulding and trim projects. The man at the center said he didn't know of any where to do that. That's gonna present a challenge for me when we do finally get to build because it is important to me to recycle as much building material as possible. I'm gonna look to see if I can find any companies in Atlanta who do it. But how much would that cost?
Anyway, I can't express how good it feels to have these room cleaned out! It's like I can breathe easier. And now I feel ready to invite realtors in and interview them. Hmm, typing that made me realize I don't. I have to clean the house! Finally touch up this wall paint in the office! Organize all my drawers! Clean my bedroom carpet! Does it ever end?????
