Things didn't turn out the way we hoped and quite frankly we tried to hang in there with the design, but it wasn't going to accomplish what we needed in the end. The design completely missed its mark and we would be back in the same problem again.
If you have a moment, wing a prayer up to heaven that this ordeal will be over soon. We're probably looking at I don't know how many more days (weeks!) of demo and construction. We have to tear it all out and start from scratch. A bit mind blowing to me.
