OK, the 34-day reno.

Looks like it's going to be another week or 10 days, but these guys are doing such a top-notch job, why cut corners to make a deadline? Thirty-four days is still pretty fast.

However, sigh, we still have to move out February 27th (Wednesday!), so if anyone knows of something available that will keep us in the neighbourhood and near the school, let us know.

In the meantime, check out some of the progress. The old world plastering is truly a thing of beauty, and not something we were expecting -- beyond our wildest dreams, as Andrew said tonight. Preserving the character of the old lathe and plaster.

The special stuff, brought in by request from Bellingham.

Look at that curve!

No sanding, folks. No sanding!

NOW we're seeing real progress. First it was demo, demo, demo. Now it's reno, reno, reno!! Dennis is, indeed, an artist--with strong arms to hold them over his head with a load of plaster!!

What a wonderful model for the two little helpers to see how it's all done.
