Sparks Will Fly

Hard to believe that we're up to week 41 of Swiss XL: The Big Build. The employee offices are going up, as well as electrical and lighting. The uniform building now connects to our exisitng dry cleaning facility with a finished corridor, complete with a fireproof barrier in case of emergency.
