I've called and reserved a nail gun ($35/day and they're open on Friday;
nails cost something like $6 for 300 or 7000 for $100.  Wood is going to
cost us $2 per 2x4 stud.  We have about 16 sheets of drywall, and I haven't
called yet to find out how much more of it costs but I remember it being
something like $7 a sheet.

I figure we're going to spend about $100 in studs, and might spend that
again in sheet rock and mud, so if someone could be along Friday to cover
these that'd be great.

I'm paying for nails and nail gun and beer.

Can someone at the space let me know if the circular saw is (a) still there
(b) functional and (c) stocked with a blade?

Anybody else who has circular saw, hammer, mudding gear, et cetera, please
feel free to bring them.

Above all, anybody who wants to help out, come by the space after about two
on Friday, and after 10 on Saturday and Sunday and we'll put you to work!

Look forward to seeing you all,
