Renovations Update

Since we went off world-hopping, a lot has happened. That’s not to say the basement is done yet. Sadly, we had hoped for completion by May. A couple of starting delays, and then a labour disruption with our contractor led to a bit of a slowdown. It’s almost the end of April, which means it’ll be an Act of God to get the basement done by May.

I think we’re okay with that. But it can’t go on much longer. Time’s a-runnin’ out.

This is where we left off when we left:

Basically: framing, insulation (particularly in the theatre area), wiring, and plumbing. It looked pretty rough as we headed out the door for the airport — a few of those pictures were literally taken minutes before we left!

Okay, so we’re back now, and progress has been made:

A lot of drywall at this point — almost at the point of doing finishing work. Flooring will be among the last things in. Alex is handling all the final beauty steps.

We’re not really certain when it’ll be all done, but it’s definitely coming along. The biggest problem? It’s really going to make us want to do the upstairs...
