It looks clean and organized so you got that going. You’re not in Utah are you, I heard some exception they get, I think a tax break some thing that doesn’t come in effect until everything is finished. Most of the houses out there have basements actually full living quarters and as long as they’re not completed I heard there was some break. Does anyone know of this.View attachment 912494 It’s not a guitar workbench. It’s what I use for home maintenance and repair. I’ve been busy with a home renovation since I retired in January. The basement is the last stage. I’ve repaired the floors snd foundation and painted the walls and floors. This was necessitated by the mess created when an old coal furnace converted to heating oil was removed. The soot that remained after the furnace was finally removed was unbelievable. Two contractors walked off the job before a third finally finished cutting it up and hauled it away. And I have the bike shop snd oil tank rooms to go. Being retired is more work than working.
I rented a room long ago from a guy in Santa Ana California who wanted to run a gas line underneath the house. He kept getting these absurd quotes because there was such a small crawlspace and it was all filled with sand and dirt. He finally found a guy who was a very good craftsman and a good family man and was out of work for a second and that guy came in and knocked it out. Even his dingbat son left the job. He didn’t even complain about it he just took everything that came at him and he dealt with it and he did great stonework and actually did everything great. It was a really great house that I had worked on a lot and we would compare work. It was a 1920s house and the owner wanted lighted switches but the wiring was pretty much two connector. Where this switch was at the front door where there was actually foundation and I told him I just couldn’t wire it up because it needed three connectors, I think the guy used the chicken wire in the lath and plaster, or grounded the outer conduit or something but he made it work.Daaaamn.
