We are having a big party when the basement is "done" and it is supposed to happen in 2011 still, so I will have to keep plugging away for a while.
It is amazing how much time was lost over some key holiday weekends. We went out of town for the 4th of July (U.S. holiday where you blow stuff up). I took a vacation day too, so it was a 4 day weekend. Not 1 minute was in the basement. Labor Day weekend, same thing. Out of town for a 4 day weekend. If I could have put in a chunk of time on those weekends, I estimate that I would have been about 4-6 WEEKS ahead of where I am now, just because many nights I only have 2 hours to spend down there working.
