Are things getting closer to being done? I think the end is in sight but the extra costs are mounting and I can feel that it’s going to take some real fortitude to get through these last few months.

The crew started by hanging tracking room 1 as it was a rectangle and level, now they are moving on to control room 1 which is a sloped ceiling and not quite so full of right angles.
