It has been almost two weeks since our last construction update. We taped the progress of the destruction of walls; we taped the Sunday Kristen and I both frosted and un-frosted the small conference room glass. But since then, much of the work that has been done by our contractor and his crew in the office is “invisible.” Loads of electrical work needed to take place before the ceiling could be sheet-rocked, the walls could be dry-walled, and the wainscoting put up. Plumbing had to be done before work could begin in the bathrooms and on the wet bar.
But yesterday, yesterday when we went into the office Kristen yelled, “CON-struction!” After a couple of weeks of no visible progress (other then a window pane being replaced with one with a too-dark tint) there was progress you could actually see!
Voilà! A shower! An actual shower!
So, why a shower in a law firm? Ryan is a runner. He runs in both in the day and at night (with a headlamp). He runs outside all year round. We had two choices to accommodate Ryan’s habit — either get him a gym membership solely for the use of the gym’s locker room, or install a shower in the office. We opted for a shower in the office.
Let us know if you’re in Hartford and want to shower after your run.
