In the writer's studio, which to me I'm Jay is one of my favorite authors like J P Beaumont a lot. So I was blown away by that. That's want just one studio. We have kitchen arts as they call it. Produces lots of good things to eat, and it's a commercial kitchen in the sense that caterers can rent it. Do they share yes, when they're up there cooking. And every once in a while, we'll make something them. woodworkers made all the cabinetry for example in the room. They used to serve their bigger meals, and they reward us with a couple of plates, cookies or something good to on during the day as you were. Touring the around the woodshop. You were showing me the cabinet tree that you guys built and it's. I don't want to call it over the top for a woodshop. But it's beautiful there. They're all matched doors or veneer. Is it veneer or is it solid? It's all it's all near Oh. Okay, and you said you made upwards of four hundred of these things for the entire barn. As we've lost count so many it's at least four hundred in the early on when the building was still being finished off, we stepped forward to volunteer to make these cabinets for Barnes so that they save tens of thousands of dollars with that effort, but in return the organization. was very much willing to buy us some nice power tools, so we got some excellent. You truly amazing. We do tools out in that Shaba, but the other benefit. If I might interrupt. That is to that we all learn.
