After the work my Uncle, cousin, and I did on Friday, my basement is ready for inspection of the plumbing, heading/air conditioning, framing, and water pipes. Basically after this inspection I can sheet-rock everything and finish the entire basement. I’ll put pictures up as soon as Dream Host fixes a permission that they hosed on my gallery directory.26 hours later they fixed it so here are the pictures – not real exciting and probably not worth the wait.

That leaves one final inspection at the end. Then I can reappraise and refinance my house (I’ll be lucky if that’s before the end of the year). Then, with my property mortgage insurance gone and my lower payments thanks to a 2% drop in my interest rate, I can afford to build on a deck.
