« Part 4: On Hold?! Part 5 of Basement Remodel series Part 6: starting to look more like a living space »

Looks like my basement remodel is finally going to start Monday morning at 7:30. It’s been a looong road to get us here, but we finally got the communication chain we’ve been asking for since we started this process. I’m glad to finally be getting some good news as it’s been a tough week. Even though the majority of the demo is done, I found out a few things that still need to be completed this weekend – and I need to start scrubbing the vinyl adhesive up again around the edges so I don’t have to do that once drywall is put in…. uuuugh.

Ugh. I hate scrubbing adhesive. You have my sympathy.

(I recently removed some kitchen panelling that was attached with construction adhesive, I ended up just kicking out the wall and re-drywalling everything.

yes – I think I’ve finally hit panic mode and am contemplating finding a product I can just overlay the adhesive with. It’s not really even adhesive – it’s a shadow of the adhesive that was there – but it’s enough to make the concrete look black. Unfortunately I’m not getting very far very fast, and have run out of time, so we’ll see how this goes.

Hmm… Wonder how you could attach some ¼” drywall over that and just hide everything…

@Dan – Wish I could! but since it’s not walkable…boo… I think I found a product at HD that I can lay over cutback even if there’s a possibility it contains asbestos. The Mapei stuff sold at Lowes specifically states not to lay over asbestos materials. Granted – it doesn’t say it on the bag, just on the downloadable tech specs doc :p grumble
