Still lots to do, but the words of the house mantra is "It's getting there."

I keep thinking I should do a video on the hidden door I'm building in the attic, but there are already a few such vids on youtube and stopping to film everyother saw cut and hole drilled will slow up the work even more. So once I'm up to something above 50% in the wellness department, I may document the build with just photos.
