Today, we basically had a construction-free day. The kablan did show up for a few minutes in the morning (in order to plaster a bit around the hole*) and then again in the mid-afternoon (in order to pick up a tool he had left and to discuss the color of the railing). However, the rest of the day, he was elsewhere, but he does plan on spending the rest of the week here I"YH.
In the mean time, please keep those comments coming.
Good night from the entire Our Shiputzim staff.
*A note about nomenclature: Although it has been scraped, sanded, plastered and generally worked over, the hole in the attic-floor-formerly-known-as-the-roof is still just that - namely, a hole. However, our editorial board has ruled that once the staircase is completed, the hole will be renamed. From that point on, the erstwhile "hole" will be referred to as "the attic stairwell."
