More progress: three walls are up and the openings for the windows and the door are "in".
Michiganders will recognize these two because they are responsible for the poisonous lead contaminated water in Flint, Michigan. I thought the bottled water on their table was very interesting. This will haunt Michigan for decades.
I believe this is the Chinese symbol for the surname "Lin" which means forest. The symbols are trees.
I find the symbols beautiful, don't you?
