The Story of a Basement Apartment I know you've previously seen the before and after photos of the basement apartment in my house, but here they are again. With an extra set of before and afters added on.
What a wild adventure! The place looks great now, so sorry you had to deal with all that mess. I don't even understand how one person could make such a mess. How come we can't have a great landlord like you? I had one once (basement apartment in Queens, yay for Tony), I guess I got my quota for life. I suppose that's why people like to buy!
As a keen watcher of 'Hoarders', I feel your pain at having to clean out the hovel your tenant made out of that sweet little apartment. Here's hoping your new tenant is a good one and that Property Inspector Trilby doesn't shirk on his duties.
TPS, I thought your basement apartment was great, despite Twinkie's attempts to murder me there.
Lovely work, OS. I think it looks better now than ever before. I'm torn between feeling your former tenant is a loathsome pig and feeling a lot of sorrow and empathy for what looks like an out of control relapse in your apartment.
