It’s been a long time coming, but our basement remodel is complete!  Gary, our awesome general contractor, and his crew started tearing down walls in the gym on September 3rd, and the last step in the process was the gym floor getting installed on December 27.

A special thank you goes to my clients for putting up with the mess during the process.  We got lucky and had some great fall weather for getting many of our workouts completed outside and away from the dust.

We think it was worth the wait! 

 

  • Questions:
  • Have you suffered lived through any major remodels?
  • If so, what was your secret for surviving?
  • Who wants to come join me for a workout in the new gym?

 

Happy Running! ~ Deb
