Rain, Rain, Go Away!

I love the sound of rain on the roof. There’s nothing better than a good rain, and if I can have thunder and lightning, it is even better. However, I have hair issues, so I want that rain to come at night or on a day when I can stay home and get comfy with a good book.

Since the building is now roofed in, interior changes can’t be easily seen by air. Currently, the exterior is being “clad” – a construction term for the brick and stone being applied to the exterior. These are exciting times!
