I normally have pretty much zero obligations and not much going on in my
life, so *of course* as soon as I step forward to help with a project
around the space my life gets super busy for a couple weeks.  The project
that has had me stuck 80 miles away from Davis pretty much every day since
our June board meeting (building a 10'x16' post-and-beam shed from
full-dimensioned lumber milled in our own back yard from trees felled in
said yard at my parents' place) has now reached a stopping point while we
wait for some more materials to arrive, and after the Father's Day weekend
concludes I will be back in the flatlands for a few days.

So... Rob, I will be in touch soon to coordinate a day that works for both
our schedules to get this lighting situation checked out.  Once we know the
exact day/time I will share the deets here, in case anyone else wants to
help out.  More hands are always useful for projects like this, and my goal
is to get this taken care of before the repair cafe happens.
