It's been a very productive month, about which we couldn't be more pleased and excited. If you need a refresher of where we last left our heroes, you can skim through the pictures in the September 5 update. People kept asking us how many square feet we were adding on, and we finally got tired of answering, "We don't know," so we contacted the architects who informed us that we're going from 1000 square feet to 1,500 square feet.Hooray!
