People ask me…

People ask me occasionally if the renovation is done. Well, mostly. There's a short list of things that are not quite finished, but it's starting to merge into every homeowner's list of desired improvements and repairs. The list that never ends. :-) In case you're curious, here's how ours stands now. I'm sure I'm forgetting things.
