Do you know, it was not nearly so bad as I thought it would be. The walls and ceiling are there, and it only smelled humid and closed (which you would expect). There is more work to be done before the painting, and carpeting can begin but it is coming along a lot faster than we expected.
I've already been asked to pick a carpet and start thinking about light fixtures and paint colors. We've been looking at kitchen appliances and washer/dryers. At first it felt like things would never be back to normal but now it feels like we are moving right along.
