Moving faster than I expected, we got all but one section of the walls
framed yesterday (the one not framed is the wall between Turing and Church,
which still has lights in it). Today, the plan is to start putting up
drywall; we'll be starting the drywall at noon-ish. See Danny and Miloh's
comment on the parallel thread for info about what's needed; however, even
if you don't need anything, just show up and help!
