Ken is waiting on 2 things:


 2) close out documents which include warranties regarding punch list which is 85% complete. Need to resolve installation update in the mezzanine. Ken is waiting on contractor to complete punch list items, so he only has to do one walk through.  Dan reports they have spoken with metal building company to see if they can help resolve gym leak issue.
