Finally, Mr.W says we have one of the cleanest job sites he has worked at. We have a secret for that. This is what the kids do when they need some discipline. Works quite well as they don't particularly enjoy it (therefore, it makes a great discipline tool) and we get a tidy job site! Win, win!
At the end of today (today it was just us again) we have mostly completed 5 rows (part of the wall will remain unfinished until right near the end so we still have access to get in and out of the basement). Since the basement is only 7 rows high, we are almost 75% done this part! Though I would love to finish it quickly, my forearms especially are thankful for the day of rest we get tomorrow!
