50 2x4x92.25" studs acquired.
Framing nail gun acquired.
1500 10-penny nails acquired.

So far, expenditures are running $225 (no exact figures yet as Action
Rentals' cash registers are down).

We are still going to need maybe 10 sheets of sheetrock, a bucket of mud,
and some sheetrock tape, as well as whatever paint people wish to apply.
