Good thing I'm totally worth it ;)
Catch up real quick if you're checking in for the first time: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4
Progress since last Saturday morning (yes, mere days ago):
Getting framed in
Ava and her assistant putting the doors on and testing the fauxdenza for sturdiness
Painting underway (at midnight as the Royals win the World Series!!!!!)
The drapes are hemmed and will go back up tonight. Can't wait to see how perfectly accurate my measurements are (said with palms pressed and head to sky).

I love hearing your feedback and the encouragement truly gets me through this adequately-titled challenge. That I say I'm doing for the last time. Every time.
I suspect the people closest to me will hold me to that promise this time....
Hope the other players are
