The lack of any rhythm has allowed the OEs, not only to rethink many priorities and technical solutions, but to dwell in the house before it was finished: they live on the other side of the street so, everyday, after work, not only they visit it, check the eventual advances, and imagine themselves at home, but lay under the porch, have a bath or a weekend picnic. Talking to them the kitchen, the bathroom, the porch... have evolved.
