    Basement Reno: The end is in sight.

    Well ladies and gents. This is the week that the basement is done. Well done enough for now. It’s been a looooong time coming with many setbacks but J has been pounding away at it in hopes of getting the majority finished before Baby#2 makes their appearance. Plus, our permit is up the end of this month so we wanted it far enough along that we’d get a final inspection pass and be done with that aspect.
