About a week and a half ago, I closed on a house. As I see it, I've signed up for a couple summers of intensive landscaping, six or so years of remodeling and a lifetime of debt. One of the projects I'm most excited about is building some great shop space in my basement. I figure some discoveries I make along the way might be worth documenting for the three people who have the RSS feed of this blog, and the one random visitor we get each week. It'll be a long and thrifty road, but here's what I'm starting with:

I pulled out the suspended ceiling tiles to find what must've been some sort of Comcast technician training ground. By taking this ceiling out, I'll gain about 8" of headroom, which is pretty necessary 'cause my thinning hair was rubbing on the ceiling before. 

How much you think this'll get me at the scrapyard?
