Illusions ... Reality Check!

So the Big Reveal of the ORC was yesterday ... what fun and hard work took place over the past seven weeks.  I promised a follow up to give you a few more details.

Here is what I really see when I walk into the unfinished Basement ... 

My Illusion Office to the left ... the Rest Surrounds!


I still have a few little piles that need to be cleaned up ... 

The TV ... which is generally on for the White Noise and to cover the sound of the furnace! And all the other PRETTY machinery that makes the House Run!
