House progress. What started with a flood and some renovations has turned into a full gut. The basement is fully to the studs. Every wire and pipe in the whole house has been replaced. Things are getting reframed, new heat ducts are being run, and yesterday we got a new staircase-- which means when we're done you can now visit without fearing for your life (the old stairs were bonkers and treacherous). It's a totally money pit but I'm starting to turn the corner from full on overwhelmed exhaustion to a sparkle and twinge of excitement. Not just about the house, but that life is full of potential and people are good ❤️.
