It only took a little over 3 months but it's here and it's NEW and I believe the wait was worth it! Now comes the daunting task of organizing it so that it makes sense (oh and finishing the interior walls but we can't agree on that). It's so exciting to have doors that open and close appropriately. We didn't even know what we were missing! I'm so thankful for my cousin, who basically built this by himself. There is a peace of mind you can't buy when you fully trust your builder/material supplier. Of course we also haven't received the bill yet, so maybe I DID pay for it!
