Something I didn't expect during this construction project is the echos in the house. Ever since the basement was opened up to the main floor, noises echo throughout. This is especially bad when the dogs start playing/barking and it sounds like there's a whole dog pack in here. Suddenly, I'm a single person - very used to peace and quiet - living in a very noisy environment.
When the work is done, there will be a wall of books, rugs on the floor and upholstered furniture to absorb the sound; the echos will be gone. I want that.
This six week job started in August. Three months later, it's only half way finished. I'm impatient for this job to be finished for a whole lot of reasons, but lately the echo is the biggest reason I want this done.
