A while back we had a flood in the basement due to a storm and had most of it repaired. I finally got around to turning the rest of the mess into something decent.
The workmen did the heavy work like hanging cabinets and counter top installation. I did the light work after they left, cleaning up and organizing.
I set up the counter top as a small snack area now.
This was before the workmen put up a wall to make it into a separate room.
I worked on these two rooms a half hour a day for about two months. I wasn't interested in doing more than that each day.
