It's all fixed

The boards and insulation taken away
About two and a half weeks ago the insurance man was here to see what had to be done about the ceiling in the basement. After he had left, I forgot all about it, until he phoned me two days later saying he would be over on Friday. After which I completely forgot all about it again. 

That Friday night however, I kept on hearing some annoying noise. At first I thought it came from outside, but as I was getting ready to go to bed, it suddenly occurred to me that the man would come to fix! I went downstairs and lo and behold: part of the ceiling had been removed (the mouldy part), there was a big fan blowing at the insulation and there was a large machine sucking up the moisture.

The moisture sucker machine
Since I don't have that much to do in the basement, I forgot about it again, only being reminded every time by the noise coming through the floorboards. Until I didn't hear it one night. I can't honestly say when it was I didn't hear a noise, it might have been last Monday or Tuesday. And I finally made it downstairs today to see. And guess what: I have a new ceiling! The machines are gone, the floor was swept and the off cuts were lying on the firewood! 

All new ceiling on the left!!
I locked the basement door and went back upstairs. Happy!


  1. Wow that's nice ! Good work done !
    We have a dehumidifier in our basement who runs on night electricity from 11 pm to 8 pm ever since we have a nice dry basement.

  3. Glad that it has all been fixed and you don't have to worry about it anymore! Have a nice weekend.

  4. I think I'd be creeped out by the thought of someone down in my basement when I wasn't there.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
