Meanwhile, in the basement…

Plywood and insulation are showing up at our house on a daily basis.

Have you priced plywood and insulation lately? It’s enough to make Bob Villa hang up his hammer.

But the husband is still determined to install a ceiling and insulate a room that has no heat because he’s bored in retirement.

  3. Someday, after he is finished, you will see with new eyes, and give purpose to this new room. Maybe a play room for Lord Dudley? But I am betting you will find a use, even if it is a place to hide his murdered body.
