It has been amazing to go up and down stairs between the floors now instead of a ladder. It has been several days now and I still get the giggles. Monday and Tuesday were spent working on the second to third floor stairs, which are about half done.
Hannah and I spent time this past Saturday planning out the kitchen with plywood on saw-horses. Much to my surprise, it seemed to actually work! This was good news was needed because there has been some issues with the mechanical room plan. The hot water tank and laundry machine both don't fit. I thought they would because I based the plan using Archicad's default sizes for these appliance. Luckily there is a fairly easy solution: move the tank into what was going to be the above ground root cellar room. We can always store roots in the garage or a dedicated exterior cellar.
