This spring suddenly the kitchen floor rose. A man worked for a home builder took a look, he said "probably dampness for long years". It has been 29 years since this house was built. So we decided to renovate our kitchen.
Fortunately the basement had no damage.
In an old house, sometimes termites attack, or dampness gets a big damage. Our basement is OK.
For one week, all basic renovating was finished. But for a while we don't still use the kitchen. So we are camping at home --- sometimes. It means we often go out for lunch, dinner with just reason.
