57 Military Rd. Still getting worse....But also getting better!!

More water coming into the basement from the other side of the house now!  There is a reason why I never liked basements...I am sure I will learn to love this one!  My basement & I will have a VERY intimate, and not always happy, connection!

The landing going to the second floor is being removed to make more headroom in the hall below.  A new landing re-designed and with thinner materials will go in its place so we don't have to perform a lovely jettee across the opening.

A new opening from the rear office to the new lunchroom.  It's amazing how a few lines moved on a drawing can create such a bloody mess!  Check out the full 4"x4" studs!  Opening up this wall reveals how uneven floors are from one room to the next.  We will continue to put on our creative thinking caps to make it all flow smoothly.

A plethora of floor construction & levels. One of us will awake in the wee hours and come up with a solution, I am sure of it!

Now on to some new stuff....Very pretty electrical panels!  Just keep telling myself that these pretty panels will be firing up my beautiful new light fixtures!  This is "positive thinking therapy" during a reno.

New laundry appliances for my tenants!  This is very exciting as it brings me back to the student apartment criteria list....you scored if there was a laundromat in the neighbourhood!

City inspectors, drawing on their experience & knowledge, helping to determine all the rules & regulations that apply.  This process really helps us to finalize the scope of work on a project.  One must be honest...there are some items I will be happy about & some not, but that's life isn't it?  Ultimately all buildings have to be safe for the occupants and this is part of the inspector's job.
