Before: Gross Room

Tuesday, August 29th, 2006

I finally cleared the gross room in our basement. It was full of the items we never unpacked and luggage and other random junk. I have big plans to turn it into a sleek modern office with bamboo floors. Of course I’m also using it as a warm-up for future home improvements in more visible rooms. It may be a year before you get the after photo. Hopefully not.

In what turned out to be a fun surprise, I found a copy of the Iowa City Press Citzen from August 27th, 1968 under the carpet – thirty-eight years to the day after it was printed. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
