WE MOVED IN!
All in all, the project itself moved fairly quickly - especially since we subcontracted individuals for specific projects, but with covid - quarantines + lockdowns, things took a bit longer here and there.
We've officially been in our home for six months, we still have a list of things that need to get done - but eventually it will all come together.
Stay tuned for future posts + keep an eye out to see how the house turned out!
