Thanks for letting me share, and I will start posting pics once things are underway. Of course, any feedback is appreciated.
I will say that one of the hardest decisions so far has been about installing an A&A in floor cleaning system. I still have time to do it (price seems right compared to others here), but it is listed as an option in the contract right now.
