I’ve been thinking how the basement reno has been a bit like giving birth. The timing of it wasn’t exactly convenient but “babies” come when they are ready to not necessarily when you are ready for them.
At first, it was exciting but as it dragged on and became more “painful”, we got to the point of saying, “How much longer?” and “I don’t think I can take much more of this!”.
Now that the basement has been completed, the “baby’s been birthed” (so to speak) and looking a bit like a newborn (i.e. not so photogenic yet). In a few days, I’ll show pics of the “new one” when she’s (hopefully) looking just a little prettier.
