    Sorry, just realized that I missed to answer about the lighting. Thanks! It’s nice having a basement that’s partially above ground. Actually, it’s just far enough above ground that it still qualifies...

    I used to run and now lift. My resting heart rate has moved up to the high 40s from the mid 40s.
