Kristen and I were on vacation last week and just got to see the work Brian Nelson and his folks accomplished in the space while we were gone. The beginnings of a banister have sprouted up; the idiosyncrasies in the floor are becoming less idiosyncratic.
The biggest news, as Ryan shared, was that there was beautiful brick hidden behind the drywall in the basement. We discovered that we had to remove the drywall a couple of weeks ago when we consulted with mold experts — the mold culprit was likely a sprinkler system leak due to a frozen pipe. Although removing all the drywall was an unexpected expense, discovering the brick was a blessing. It will come as no surprise that we will keep the brick exposed.
Although it’s hidden and doesn’t lend itself to the above video, the substantial electrical work is plugging along too. The day we are able to flip a switch and have the lights work in the basement will be a big day. B-I-G.
I also note that our King Charles Cavalier Daphne makes her debut appearance in this video, and she’s really cute.
