I came, I saw the stair, I conquered it. As I promised yesterday (which usually doesn't mean anything), I was going to raise, not to say raze, the landing of the stairs to the second floor. For before pictures, go to yesterday's post.

Tomorrow will be another exciting day, we'll finally get ... nah, I'm not going to tell you today, you'll have to wait until tomorrow ... ;-)
