Thanks for the info Otie Though I have a small question, will they start installing the halfen connections in October, or are they installing them already now and in October they'll start installing the glass on those halfen connections?

Dammit, we were SO close to 1776 pages. But we still have a chance to save it for the topping out ceremony!
