That high pipe in the photo above was a mystery pipe to us until the concrete guy explained to us it had been an old gutter pipe that led to the sump pump. Well the house no longer has gutters so we were able to remove it and he filled in the holes left behind!
Our curved bump out wall is nice and smooth now.No more ugly, crumbling yuck! The upper part of the wall is the exposed brick that shows on the outside of the house.
Our new basement windows now look showcased.
The walls look funny because I took these photos before they were completely dry. They will ultimately be a consistent light grey color. We had planned on painting the walls white but that will not be necessary after seeing how this came out!
The floors need a serious cleaning now. After that we will be painting them grey. It is well on its way to being bright with no basement smell. Worth every penny!
We are definitely calling this guy back in the spring to do a couple of outdoor walkways with stones pressed in concrete (his specialty).
I hope you have enjoyed seeing what can be done with an old 1900 basement. I had no idea it was such a simple fix. 2 guys did this in 2 days.
Have a great week! Thank you for stopping by. ~Val
