And Even More Progress!

The biggest lesson we’ve learned while upgrading our little cabin (which we’ve christened The Burrow after the Weasley’s wonky yet magical abode) is to be flexible in our expectations.  We always start with a big picture but the end never ends up looking like what we had originally envisioned.  Every step of the way needs … More And Even More Progress!
