Done with remodeling (part 1)

We have finally wrapped up our remodeling efforts, at least for this season, here at "The Farm". The final step was to pour a concrete floor and enclose the entrance to the cellar. The area was previously enclosed with a dirt floor and covered the old outside cellar entrance. It was filled with old dried out fire wood from when the house was heated with a wood/coal furnace.

Our contractor, Gerard Belanger and his son Jason had to wheelbarrow the concrete to the entrance as there was no way that the concrete truck could get to the rear of the house.

They had to wade into the concrete to do the leveling and then do the finishing through the window & door with a long handled float.

Then it was wait for a day for the concrete to harden before boxing in the cellar entrance.

To be continued...

My that seems like a lot of hard work (on the pocket too) but worth it in the end.
