Done with remodeling (part 2)

Continued from previous post
...then, after the concrete had hardened they came back and finished the framing of the old cellar entrance.

They tore off the old outside entrance...

...and then boxed in the cellar stairway.

Complete with a door to the cellar.

Now we have a nice room to store our bikes, etc. while we are on the road in the winter.

Here is a final accounting of our expenses in remodeling the farmhouse (click on image for larger size). We spent $17,111.71. It turned out to be more expensive than we originally expected (isn't it always), but we feel it was worth it as we have a nice home base for summers and it will eventually become our permanent home when we can no longer full-time in our RV.
We plan on relaxing a bit and then start west for the next winter season on August 22. We will stop in Appleton for a few days and plan on arriving at the Nevada Treasure RV Resort in Pahrump, Nevada on September 1.
