The F word

January 5, 2012

Not that one, though it has been invoked, more than once, in the BAB, and will, for sure, be used again. In this case, the F word is

Finished. I can’t tell you how many people ask us when we’ll be finished and we can’t help but to chuckle. Our usual answer: never. We honestly don’t expect that we will ever finish renovating the building. Part of the reason is because that we want to allow the design and construction to evolve as we find cool things and figure out ways to incorporate them. We also have the complication of both being architects. We have a teensy, tiny tendency to over think everything. That can result in it taking almost a year to find a base for our bathroom sink. Our funds are limited. Our time is limited. The project is enormous. Unexpected things happen. We are easily distracted. There are plenty of reasons why we don’t consider the concept of being finished when we think about the BAB. All we can do is chip away at it, picking off one thing at a time, not unlike running a marathon.

If we stopped to think about the enormity of the scope of this project, we’d curl up with Lucy and not surface for days.

So, I wrote earlier about why we haven’t posted in several months. I got on the post-wagon and knock out several in a row. Tom could now start his post about the progress he’s been making. His response to writing about the bathroom was “its not finished”. I know I’m supposed to be supportive and all, but I think I snorted when he said that. At some time in the future, expect to see a really long, drama filled post from Tom about the bathroom. Then we will have something we can call Finished.

    When I saw the F word is…..I thought it would have been functional

      Or maybe Fun? That’s what it’s all about, right?
