We thought we had 11 days to finish our bonus room. We didn't. It turns out that it wasn't 11 days, it was UNTIL THE 11th. Our prospective buyers are scheduled to come into town TODAY, on the 11th of August. (UPDATE: The buyers are planning to get into town this EVENING, but aren't planning to actually see the house until Thursday.)

I guess it's good that we got it done! With many thanks to all those who helped with this LONG LONG process from the beginning: Rod, Ryan, Danny, and most especially my in-laws, Judy & Ray (the man!), we were able to take our bonus room the final leg from newly plastered walls and bare floor to completely painted, trimmed, and carpeted bonus room in SIX days!

Without further ado, here is the newest 250-ish square feet of our humble abode!

There's the 50-cent tour. Here's hoping that this new piece of "sweat equity" we've put in our home will pay off in a sale soon. You're welcome to come by to see it for yourself any time. As usual, we'll keep you posted!
