Peeling back tape

otherwise known as "how i was helpful in the basement"

This was actually quite a b*tch to do, the tape is a cross between duct tape and the security tags that some clothes have that you need to cut off before you wear...anyone?  So i had to peel them back while S taped.

this is the official system of how we maneuvered the tape exchange from where i was sitting to where he was sitting.  We shoved this piece of foam board at each other.

Ugh, this is the basement.  And you don't even know what progress this is.  The garage was where this ductwork is sitting.  A car would have been here, surrounded by cinder block walls, ie you wouldn't see that new window.  We are turning it into a non garage, usable basement.  Slowly.  Very very slowly. So things need to be insulated, hence this bubble wrap stuff around this guy.  You can also see the foam board up with the furring strips attached (real technical terms!)  After the wiring is ran, we can put up drywall.   

Snug as a bug in a rug.

Sounds like a lot of work. It looks like you have a great space for a basement compared to our cape! The ceilings are low and it's DAMP! Yuck.
