The hole from below

Instant hardwood floors!

Looks real enough.

The hole

I fell through this. It doesn't look it, but it's a 4' drop.

Early furnishing stages

The first coat of paint

Dan is obviously the drummer.

Celina is the lead singer.

I'm like the bassist.

Once it was primed, we took band photos.

Dan and Celina primed, because I fell through the hole like a lovely ballerina.

Early living room

Notice the hole is now covered with a sheet of plywood.
Hindsight, etc. etc.
