52 days in 57 seconds and a gopher

Accompanied by some electro track that Youtube provided since every time we try to put on an appropriate commercial track, it gets flagged as piracy and we end up with no volume.

What you can't see on the video is the hourly, or more, coordination meetings that happen in the office and in the field.

Here's a shot of the field management team from Orier Electric talking with Russ on the roof about a dozen things that only they understand.

Rooftop hardhat tour with Cari Sanchez Potter

This machine gets the blocks up there

These guys cut and lay them

This side's not done yet, but shows the basic outline
