Headroom

Blair the contractor got the basement stairs reconfigured this weekend. Wow.

If you recall, at 5-foot-6, I had to seriously duck to get downstairs.

Before

After

Now a six-footer can walk down without bonking his noggin.

This project has taken about $600 and a little brainpower to get stuff out of the way:

  • I removed old heat duct and relocated it during bathroom remodeling.

  • Scott the plumber ran pipes tight to the ceiling and relocated the washer hookup when basement got new copper pipes.

  • Contractor ran bathtub drain line closer to ceiling.

In the end, the basement seems much more user-friendly, and hopefully that will be worth the rather modest expense. Yay.
