What Jeffrey Dahmer’s basement might have looked like… (By hipchickindc)


This is the third installment in a slowly moving saga of a full house renovation aka “The Adventures of Mark and Charles”. Previous posts can be found by clicking: Episode 1 and Episode 2 and Episode 3.

With a bevy of permits plastered to the front windows, activity at the Mark and Charles house has gone from a standstill to a whirlwind of contractors, dust, and noise. So far, some plumbing has been installed, and the framing for the walls on the second floor is coming along.

The framing is lovely and an exciting sign of progress to be sure, but I was much more intrigued that it appears that Mark and Charles are preparing to bury toddlers in their basement. Well, not really, but check out the pictures!

What is actually going on in Mark and Charles’ basement is preparation for underpinning of the foundation. This involves digging down a few feet at intervals and then strengthening the foundation at these spots.

Hopefully, more updates soon! More pictures after the jump.
