Jen

Save those pics. Two or three places. Many of them are really eye catching and I think sooner or later they will make something really wonderful for you or Paul or somebody looking at Montana or Wheaton labs for the first time...


Cheers,
Rufus

Everyone is doing a really good job on that building. I have really started to look at the details and the place is really looking nice. I am sure with someone living in it, and people knowing who that person is, there is more pride being done in the work.

Again, great job.
