The drainage system is finished! It took 1 3/4 days. Not bad! It was a little crazy at the end since I was trying to leave for a meeting and they forgot to finish taping up one of the windows. But now I can relax for a few days until we get started on finishing the basement in earnest. The concrete is suppose to cure for a couple of weeks, although I need to see if I can get my contractor out to patch the rest of bathroom floor, so we can be all finished with the concrete work (and then I won’t have dirt in front of my washing machine). Once it cures it is time for the basement to turn pink briefly (with insulation) and then it will be time for studs! Yeah!!
I am also excited to start showing the finishes and details for the basement (some of which I still need to pick out). Here are a few more pictures of the progress…

If I squint real hard I can imagine the space all finished.
