Much has happened recently: In February, we installed the windows in the front of the building, put in dry wall in the basement classrooms, and tiled the bathrooms on the third and fourth floors. We also started working on painting the whole building, drilled holes for the recessed lighting, and built a temporary platform to work on our laylight.
