During the time we were framing the 1st Floor Nimo was installing a new Electrical service and gas line during the install.

They happened to hit one of their own gas lines and had to evacuate the surrounding buildings and close off the street while the fire dept. came in so Nimo could shut down the leak.

As was stated before the only way up or down in the building was by ladder and a hoist system here is Billy checking out the brick work.
