This Just In

My basement has walls! After three and a half months of framing, two last minute closets, HVAC guys who ended up also having to "fix" our AC (aka - charge six hundred extra dollars to look at it for two hours and tell us they couldn't find the leak), two weeks of wiring, many many many feet of itchy insulation, a few bandaids, a few strained backs and a few late nights... we dismissed our team of highly fatigued dads and brothers to hand it over to the professionals. (Thanks Family!)
For a little over nine hours yesterday the floor vibrated and shook, the walls hummed, power randomly shut off, my pictures rattled, my poor dog whined, the kids yelled over the noise and my head throbbed while the sheetrockers built me some walls! Taping begins today, we are on our way, hooray hooray hooray!
