It has been almost two weeks, but it is a whole new world for us. Baby Boy Eli arrived 10 days ago and he has been keeping us busy (read more here). Luckily we have had family here to help us adjust to and allow Q to sneak away to work on the basement.
The entire space is now drywalled, and 50% of it is mudded as well. Today the whole family spent the morning hanging out in the new space while Q continued to mud the walls. Another big milestone that has made the space feel more and more like a room, is seeing the TV mounted.
