The Making of The Wallagio 2.0: Week 6

That’s right, I’ve gone to weekly updates instead of quasi-daily updates.  For the most part, the day-to-day changes have become more glacial in extent.  Also, I’ve become bored with the updates process and a little frustrated that we’re in week six and there’s no end in site.

Such is remodeling.
