      • Thanks, Jerry.

        Well, I've made it up above the second floor windows. Almost feels like I'm making progress.

                    Getting ready to start stepping out the cornice. We'll see how that goes.

                    • On buildings like this, the cornice is really important to the look, even a simple one. It's got to be more interesting to build compared to the tedium of the sides.

                      I'm sure you'll do a first-rate job.
