Amendments to the List
Like washing down the walls and floor with TSP then rinsing it off. (Yeah, duh, simply spraying on the mildewcide over the dead mildew would not get me a good paint job.)
That's done, not without a lot of slop and mess. Slop happens. Slop gets mopped.
Regardless of its history, the spalled place was there. "Was" being the operative term, because I patched it. Mixed up too much Sak-Crete; not sure how I miscalculated so badly, and too bad it was after dark and I couldn't use the leftovers for the holes in the sidewalk outside.
Add this item, too: Rooting around in the paint cupboard in the workshop. If I'm lucky, my previous owners will have left me a can of the basement wall white paint. If I'm even luckier, it'll be usable.
On the other hand, I'm deleting the items about cleaning up and repainting the whole laundry room floor at this juncture. Yes, it needs it. But it's not directly relevant to getting the new water treatment system installed. I'll just paint the bit of the floor where the new equipment will sit. That'll do for now.
