It was a nine-month labor of love. We knew it would be a long, slow process, but the worst is over. Today, we installed the computers in our new home office space. It's nice in there! (The room has fabulous acoustics, and I'm really enjoying my iTunes library.) We still have lots of work to do--baseboards, shelving, and cabinetry, for example--and by "we" I mean DH, mostly. Trying to restore the dining room will be my job.
But it's so wonderful to be in the new room!
