Physically drained but mentally excited we finally had to admit it: the nesting instinct seems to lie exceptionally strong in us. Despite of the occasional fleeting moments of despair we'd choose to do all of it again in a minute. Crazy.
Lots of work has been done. Small steps, bigger steps. Perhaps not overly exciting steps, but steps forward nevertheless. The checklist from Friday night is as follow:
First, the downstairs walls have been painted with a base coat.

Second, the floor heating cable has been covered and the tubes for sensors have been fitted in place.

Third, 10 tons of gravel has arrived. And thanks, once again, to the invaluable help of Juha, Janne, Jouni and Matti, it has miraculously moved to the bunker. You guys rock!!

Last, the painting of the bunker walls and ceiling has been initiated.

Fortunately, one of us had time to enjoy the sun outside, as it has been beautifully warm now in Finland. At the age of two, watering the herbs is quite exciting.
